FILM: Something for Everyone

We truly have something for everyone over the next two weeks of the 2016 Paramount Summer Classic Film Series!

You like schemers and dreamers? We have the most memorable of them all in two unmissable double features: Double Indemnity paired with All About Eve at the Paramount (Film Fans, come to the Wednesday double feature for an extra $1 off your ticket!), and another classic film noir Laura paired with Fargo at the Stateside. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Coen Bros’ masterpiece, so you won’t want to miss this special evening!

You like gut-busting comedies? We have two of the best on Friday June 24: Blazing Saddles and This Is Spinal Tap. We’ve shown plenty of Westerns and rock and roll documentaries in our Theatres before, but on June 24 we’re going to mock them. We tease because we love.

Are epic dramas more to your taste? We have a few of those this weekend, too. Devote your Saturday to the Corleone family on June 25 with a spectacular double feature of The Godfather and The Godfather Part II. Then get some sleep and come back on Sunday June 26 for the most astonishing and action-packed Biblical epic of all time, Ben-Hur.

Also on Sunday June 26, we have another Family Film Festival screening: Errol Flynn’s immortal swashbuckling classic The Adventures of Robin Hood. And this one comes with a special treat before the feature: the equally great Looney Tunes gem, RABBIT HOOD. Remember, for all Family Film Festival screenings, adults enjoy $10 tickets and kids 12 and under get in for just $6. And our good friends at Toy Joy will be there with goodies and games!



Finally, if you love seeing REALLY old movies in a REALLY old theatre, we’re celebrating some silent cinema anniversaries on June 28 and 29, including the 80th anniversary of Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times, the 95th anniversary of Chaplin’s feature debut The Kid, and the 100th (that’s right, 100th!) anniversary of D.W. Griffith’s seminal drama Intolerance. Escape the heat every day at the historic Paramount and Stateside Theatres.

See you at the movies!
