OCTOBER 11 - 12

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!

OCTOBER 18 - 19

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.

OCTOBER 19 - 20

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.

OCTOBER 25 - 26

THE WOLF MAN

1941 • Lon Chaney Jr. , Claude Rains

 

As the saying goes: “Even a man who is pure in heart, and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms, and the autumn moon is bright.” Lon Chaney Jr. stars in this horror masterpiece about a man who is attacked by a werewolf and then becomes one himself. Simply put: it’s one of the greats!

PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

1943 • Claude Rains, Nelson Eddy

 

This 1940s Technicolor version of Universal’s classic opera house tale features excellent performances from Claude Rains and Nelson Eddy, along with lush sets and photography.  It’s lighter on the horror than other versions, but heavier on the music. Opera fans will be delighted!

BABY FACE

1933 • Barbara Stanwych

 

A young Barbara Stanwyck stars in this drama that garnered a bad reputation for its “adult” themes after its initial release, only to become a cult favorite decades later. Considered by some to be the most daring pre-code film, we are presenting the original uncensored version. Please note: although tame by today’s standards, this film may not be suitable for young children.

GOLD DIGGERS OF 1933

1933 • Joan Blondel, Ruby Keeler, DIck Powell, Ginger Rogers

 

Gold Diggers of 1933 is one of the best movies to come out of 1930s Hollywood.  It takes place in New York City at the height of the Great Depression. Four showgirls scheme for that next role in a Broadway musical -- using men, loving men, cheating men. This is a wonderful comedy with the directorial magic of the great Busby Berkeley.

Saturday, November 2 - 8:15pm

Howard Huges presents

SCARFACE

1932 • Paul Muni, George Raft, Boris Karloff

 

The most talked about gangster film of the 30s, it’s surprisingly brutal for its day, filled with violence and some grisly dark humor. Directed by Howard Hawks, it’s a masterfully crafted film with a courageous social message. Definitely a cinema classic.  Please note: although tame by today’s standards, this film may not be suitable for young children.

Sunday, November 3 - 2:30pm

RED-HEADED WOMAN

1932 • Jean Harlow

 

In a wonderful and memorable performance, Jean Harlow stars as a woman who uses sex to advance her social position. During the course of the film, Harlow's character breaks up a marriage, has multiple affairs, and attempts to kill a man. It's exactly the type of film that was forbidden just a few years later. Please note: although tame by today’s standards, this film may not be suitable for young children.

November 8 - 9

FEET FIRST

1930 • Harold Lloyd

 

After sound films came out, the careers of many silent stars faded quickly. Fortunately, silent comedy legend Harold Lloyd made a few “talkies”, proving that his comic genius was timeless. Like his famous clock dangling scene in Safety Last, Lloyd gives us an equally tense and hilarious scene on a tall building’s scaffolding.

THE CIRCUS

1928 • Charlie Chaplin

 

In the last film he made during the silent era, Charlie Chaplin revels in the art of the circus, paying tribute to the acrobats and pantomimists who inspired his virtuoso pratfalls. Presented with a musical track composed by Chaplin in 1969, this gag-packed comedy ranks among Chaplin’s finest, thanks to some of the most outlandish set pieces of the director-performer’s career.

MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET

1947 • Maureen O'hara, John Payne, Natalie Wood

 

A touching holiday classic that is a must see!

This iconic film is one of the American Film Institute's “Most Inspiring Movies of All Time.”
