Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall in

THE BIG SLEEP

Directed by Howard Hawks • (1946)

 

 

 

Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall -- what more can we ask for? 

 

In this 1946 timeless classic, “Bogie and Bacall” are at their very best.  There is no disputing that this film is one of the greats!

 

The film is based on Raymond Chandler’s 1939 novel, featuring his famous Philip Marlowe detective (played by Bogart).

 

Directed by Howard Hawks, this film is on everyone’s list of favorite film noir private eye flicks.

CHARLIE CHAPLIN'S

LIMELIGHT

1952 • Charlie Chaplin, Claire Bloom, Nigel Bruce, Harold Lloyd

 

Chaplin’s Limelight is a glimmering homage to a bygone era.

 

It’s a bittersweet tale of an artist passing the torch to a new generation.

 

In a deeply personal and semi-autobiographical role, Chaplin portrays a washed-up stage comedian named who rescues a distraught ballerina from suicide and mentors her.

 

Among the film’s highlights is a stage routine with two legends: Chaplin and stone-faced Buster Keaton, in their one and only film appearance together.

THE FIREFLY

1937 • Jeanette MacDonald

 

Part romance, part political intrigue, The Firefly entertains while Jeanette MacDonald shines.

 

Anyone who thinks MacDonald is just an operatic singer must see this film.

 

She plays a spy -- a sultry and sexy one. MacDonald also proves to be a consummate actress and comic.

 

She is superb. Starring here with Allan Jones and Warren William.

AUGUST 26 - 27 - 28

THE GREAT VICTOR HERBERT

1939 • Allan Jones, Mary Martin

 

 

An enjoyable film, but it is not a factual biography of Victor Herbert, as the title suggests.

 

But the music in the film is from Victor Herbert, and it’s wonderful -- supported by the incredible voices of Jones and Martin.

SEPTEMBER 2 - 3

AT THE CIRCUS

1939 • The Marx Brothers

 

This Marx Brothers are off to the Big Top to save a struggling circus from bankruptcy.

 

Groucho's rendition of "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady" is one of this film's finer moments, although there's plenty of action too, as the guys encounter a slew of colorful circus characters.

 

It’s complete silliness, but lots of fun.

1942 • Betty Grable, Victor Mature, Jack Oakie

 

 

A colorful 1940s World War II Pacific island fantasy movie.

 

Victor Mature and Jack Oakie head to an island where Betty Grable lives in tropic splendor.

 

The music is simply fantastic.

 

Harry Owens and his orchestra are incredible, and the classic hula comedienne Hilo Hattie provides comic relief in her attempts to land Jack Oakie.

SEPTEMBER  16 - 17

STEAMBOAT BILL, JR.

1928 (silent) • Buster Keaton
With Live Organ Accompaniment

 

Buster Keaton was one of the great silent auteurs, known for his deadpan expression, physical comedy, and dangerous stunts -- such the final hurricane scene in Steamboat Bill, Jr. where an entire building collapses on Keaton… but he’s left standing safely in an open door that falls perfectly around hm.

 

Buster Keaton was far ahead of his time and Steamboat Bill, Jr. is Keaton at his best.

THE BLACK CAT

1934 • Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi

 

Would you spend the night in a bizarre home atop a horrific WWI battlefield?

ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN

1948 • Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney, But Abbott, Lou Costello

 

This film may be a spoof, but it’s also an homage to the legendary monsters of Universal Studios. 

 

The three monters (Bela Lugosi as Dracula, Lon Chaney, Jr. as the Wolfman, and Glenn Strange as Frankenstein) play it straight, making the blend of comedy with horror so incredibly entertaining. 

 

A must see for any horror fan - or comedy fan!

DRACULA

1931 • Bela Lugosi • Directed by Tod Browning

 

 

Bela Lugosi’s extraordinary performance made Dracula the most terrifying monster in movie history. 

 

When first released, the film was known to make patrons faint in the theaters and have nightmares for years. 

 

If you love scary movies, Dracula is either at the top of your list, or it will be after you see it this weekend at Old Town Music Hall.

FRANKENSTEIN

1931 • Boris Karloff 

 

 

"It's Alive!" is a line that will live on forever as we recall the first moments of life for cinema’s most recognized and beloved monster of all time.

 

Karloff's sympathetic performance evokes fear while also breaking our hearts.

 

This film made him a huge star after years of working as an unknown actor. 

 

Frankenstein is nothing less than a classic!

THE MUMMY

1932 • Boris Karloff

 

The Mummy is one of the most beloved films from Universal's classic horror period.

 

Boris Karloff gives the film its resonance.

 

Audiences in 1932 were frightened to death when Karloff opened his eyes for the first time.

 

The Mummy is a true work of art that’s as much suspense thriller as it is horror.

THE INVISIBLE MAN

1933 • Claude Rains

 

 

With a brilliant performance by Claude Rains (often with only his voice), The Invisible Man gets better every time you watch it!

 

In the 1930s, the special effects left audiences captivated.

 

Even today we wonder how they did it without computers.

 

Based on the H.G Wells classic story, this film is on everyone’s must-see list of horror/sci-fi classics.

CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON

1954 • Sci-Fi Monster Classic

 

Scientists try to capture a prehistoric humanoid beast that lurks in the depths of the Amazon.

 

This 50s flick is a lot of fun -- a fantastical monster movie deserving of its iconic cult status.

 

It’s even still scary at times!

 

Despite some stiff acting and cheesy effects, Creature is a nostalgic trip back to the good ol' days of sci-fi monster movies.

THE WOLF MAN

1941 • Lon Chaney, Jr., Claude Rains

Lon Chaney Jr. stars in this horror masterpiece about a man who is attacked by a werewolf and then becomes one himself.

 

Simply put: this film one of the greats!
