That Special Valentine's Day Weekend: Romancing the Screen

 

More Films for Lovers at the Egyptian Theatre!

 

It's that time of year again - the time when we're reminded of all the bliss, ecstasy, contentment (and, yes, uncertainty and even misery) that goes arm-in-arm with romance. And what better way to celebrate this roller coaster of a holiday than to go to the movies and see the power of love beautifully and cathartically magnified on the big screen?

Join us Valentine's Day weekend for films both classic and contemporary that celebrate amour in its many forms, including CASABLANCA, DOUBLE INDEMNITY, DOCTOR ZHIVAGO, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S, HAROLD AND MAUDE, GONE WITH THE WIND, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, THE AFRICAN QUEEN, THE PRINCESS BRIDE and THE NOTEBOOK.

Series compiled by Grant Moninger and Gwen Deglise. Program notes by Beth Hanna.

 

Friday, February 11 – 7:30 PM

Double Feature: New 35 mm Print! THE PRINCESS BRIDE, 1987, 20th Century Fox, 98 min. Dir. Rob Reiner. This adaptation of William Goldman’s wonderful, tongue-in-cheek fairy tale stars Cary Elwes as the dashing Westley, who is forced to fight off the villainous Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon) and Count Tyrone (Christopher Guest) to save his beloved princess, Buttercup (Robin Wright). This cult hit features marvelous sets by Norman Garwood and high-spirited supporting performances by Billy Crystal, Carol Kane, Peter Falk and Andre the Giant. [35mm] Trailer

THE NOTEBOOK, 2004, Warner Bros., 123 min. Dir. Nick Cassavetes. Wealthy socialite Allie (Rachel McAdams) and working-class dreamer Noah (Ryan Gosling) fall passionately in love in one of the most ardently beloved screen romances of the last decade, based on the bestselling novel by Nicholas Sparks. Torn apart by status differences and the onset of World War II, the two go their separate ways - Allie to university and Noah to the army. But time and even great misunderstanding can't suppress true love, and when the two meet again after the war - despite Allie's impending marriage to another man - they are confronted with their real feelings and desires. With Gena Rowlands and James Garner. [35mm] Trailer | Buy Tickets

 

 

Saturday, February 12 – 7:30 PM

GONE WITH THE WIND, 1939, Warner Bros., 222 min. Dir. Victor Fleming. Southern vixen Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) only has eyes for sensitive Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) - but wise-cracking hellraiser Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) is determined to win her heart, even if that means surviving the burning of Atlanta, the destruction of Scarlett's beloved Tara and the overthrow of the Old South itself.

Sunday, February 13 – 7:30 PM

Double Feature: CASABLANCA, 1942, Warner Bros., 102 min. Dir. Michael Curtiz. "Here’s looking at you, kid." Tough guy Humphrey Bogart is Rick, an expatriate club owner in Morocco, nursing a broken heart after his cherished sweetheart (Ingrid Bergman) disappeared from his side in Paris when the Nazis invaded. When she re-enters his life with her fugitive, resistance leader husband (Paul Henreid), sparks fly. With an incredible cast that includes Claude Rains, Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet and Conrad Veidt. Winner of three Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay. [35mm] Trailer

DOUBLE INDEMNITY, 1944, Universal, 107 min. Billy Wilder’s cunning masterpiece helped to spawn Hollywood’s dark era of mordant murder thrillers and is one of the greatest noirs ever made. Fred MacMurray plays Walter Neff, the sardonic insurance salesman who is willingly seduced by slinky Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck) into planning and executing the murder of her newly insured husband. Edward G. Robinson is Keyes, Neff’s sharp colleague and gruff friend, who smells a rat when Phyllis’ hubby has a fatal train "accident," qualifying the femme fatale for the lucrative double-indemnity payout.

BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S, 1961, Paramount, 115 min. When Audrey Hepburn’s girl-about-town Holly Golightly meets handsome nice guy George Peppard, she begins to gradually rethink her anything-goes, high-living lifestyle. Adapted from Truman Capote’s bestselling romance by director Blake Edwards (THE PINK PANTHER, THE PARTY) and featuring what is arguably Henry Mancini’s greatest score.
