JULY 10 & 11

SALOME

(1923 - silent)

    

  

An unconventional film version of Oscar Wilde's 1892 retelling of the Bible story of Salome, who danced before Herod to win the death of John the Baptist. 

 

Salome is often considered one of the first “art films” in U.S. cinema, with highly stylized costumes, exaggerated acting (even for 1923), and minimal sets. 

 

In 1923, it was a disaster at the box office, but the film is a must-see for anyone interested in silent film, dance, costuming, or art nouveau. 

 

The film will be accompanied live on the Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Pipe Organ.


Friday 8:15PM
Saturday 2:30PM and 8:15PM 

NOTE: Every show begins with music played on the pipe organ, an audience sing along,
and a comedy short.  There is a 15-minute intermission, followed by the feature film.

JULY 24 - 25 - 26

THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME

(1939)

    

 Spectacular cinematography and superb direction make this film a must-see cinema classic.  Even beyond the genius of those two aspects of this film, you have Charles Laughton's performance as The Hunchback.  Without a doubt (few would dispute this) Laughton's performance here is one of the most astonishing ever put on film.

 

This version of author Victor Hugo’s classic novel remains as fresh, as emotionally resonant and as powerfully artistic as the day it was made. 

 

It’s essential viewing for those who love the art of cinema or those who just love a great story.

 

NOTE:  The film has a two-hour running time, so our entire program (with pipe organ music and sing-along) will run slightly longer than usual.


Friday 8:15PM

JULY 31 and AUGUST 1

20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA

(1916 - silent)

• Live Accompaniment on the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ •

    

 

 

This silent version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea combines plot elements of Jules Verne's original story, then adds a subplot involving the origin of Captain Nemo. 

 

On top of its impressive set design, it was the first major film that used underwater photography.

 

It’s a wonderful, landmark achievement in filmmaking.

AUGUST 7 - 8

DEANNA DURBIN in

FIRST LOVE

(1939)

    

 

 

A maturing Deanna Durbin and a strikingly handsome young Robert Stack are enjoyable romantic leads in this Cinderella tale that features the miraculous voice of Durbin.

 

The film is also a bit of a screwball comedy, while still allowing Durbin's character to break into a few operatic arias. 

 

A highly enjoyable film from start to finish.


Friday 8:15PM

AUGUST  14 - 15 - 16

MARILYN MONROE and JANE RUSSELL

GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES

(1953)

    

 

 

Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell are terrific in their musical comedy roles as "two little girls from Little Rock". 

 

The film is filled with comic gags and the musical numbers are terrific -- especially the classic “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend”.  

 

Directed by the one and only Howard Hawks, this classic is one glitzy, glamorous Hollywood spectacle.

AUGUST  21 - 22 - 23

Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers

SWING TIME

(1936)

    

 

 

If you only watch one Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers musical, this should be the one.

 

In addition to the spectacular dancing of Astaire and Rogers together, the brilliance of Jerome Kern's music truly stands out. 

 

The songs include:  "Pick Yourself Up", "A Fine Romance", and "The Way You Look Tonight".

 

Directed by George Stevens, when it comes to iconic Hollywood musicals, it doesn’t get much better than this! 


Friday 8:15PM

AUGUST  28 - 29 - 30

Charlie Chaplin in

THE KID

(1921 - silent)

    

 

 

 

It is hard to find such delightful and adorable movies these days.

 

The Kid is a silent movie so rich and beautiful you don't need words; it is a wonderful blend of humor and drama.

 

While perhaps not as celebrated as some of Chaplin's later features, The Kid is an incredible achievement, masterful in its humor, joy, and emotion.

 

Chaplin and young Jackie Coogan make an entertaining and unforgettable pair.  

 

Another Chaplin classic.

Alfred Hitchcock weaves his spellbinding magic into this Francis Beeding novel. S

• OLD TOWN MUSIC "HAUNT" BEGINS  •

THE FLYING SERPENT

(1946)

    

 

 

Of all the horror films cranked out by the poverty row studios in the 1940s, those made by PRC (Producers Releasing Corporation) were the most outrageous.

 

The Flying Serpent is a case in point.

 

Actor George Zucco, who was always entertaining as the villain in these films, plays a mad archaeologist who discovers a hidden Aztec treasure and living archaeopteryx.

THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN

(1935) 

    

 

 

Perhaps the greatest example of a sequel surpassing its original, this follow-up to 1931’s Frankenstein is sheer brilliance.

 

It features some of the most memorable scenes in cinema history, notably the monster's encounter with a lonely hermit and the introduction of 'The Bride'.

 

The Bride of Frankenstein is regarded as the high point of the Universal Studios horror films and stands as a testament to the genius of director James Whale.

It's been said again and again that this is one great horror film.

 

But it is more than that.  It’s ”The Fly!” -- perhaps the greatest! 

 

You must see this film to truly experience the early days of horror, when classics like this would exhibit a freshness and a palpable terror that remakes cannot capture. 

 

View at your own risk!
