Films: Old, Classic & Unknown on Saturdays

is the local classics film society which exhibits on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month* at 

2648 North Hackett Avenue 

starting at 7:00 p.m.


November 14: THE SEVENTH VEIL  (1945)
This film was a sensational box office hit in both England and America and has remained a well-loved essay in obsession.  A sensitive, musically talented young girl (ANN TODD) is, by a series of circumstances, forced to live with her brooding second cousin (played with relish by JAMES MASON). Recognizing her talent at the piano, he drives her half to madness by bullying her into becoming a great artist, demanding that she devote her entire life to music. Slowly but surely he drives her to her breaking point.  A superb drama with all the stops pulled out.
Screenplay by Muriel and Sydney Box.  Music by Benjamin Frankel.  Directed by Compton Bennett.


November 28:  SINGIN' IN THE RAIN  (1952)
There are no superlatives that have been overlooked in describing this brilliant musical.  Suffice it to say that it was in 1952, and still remains today, the finest Hollywood musical of them all.  GENE KELLY, DONALD O'CONNOR and DEBBIE REYNOLDS star.  FOCUS has obtained an original Technicolor imbibition print for your pleasure!
Screenplay by Comden and Green.  Directed by Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen.







" ... classic American films

distinguished foreign films,

films you've missed,

films you want to see again,

and films

you may never have had the opportunity to see."



The role of a film society has several elements:

to offer a large part of the literature of film;

to provide a venue for film study and discussion;

to educate; 

to revive well-known but little-seen classics;

to provide some historical background related to motion pictures;

to introduce a new audience to films that are little-known to most followers of films;
