“Classic Movie Tuesdays” Kicks Off with NOTORIOUS

Cinema buffs, rejoice! Following the return of our popular “Weekends With the Oscars” film series earlier this summer, we’re thrilled to announce that our new “Classic Movie Tuesdays” series will debut on September 21 at 7 PM.

That night marks the 75th anniversary of the very first Cannes Film Festival. Some of the films shown that year include all-time greats like Jean Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast, David Lean’s Brief Encounter, and Billy Wilder’s The Lost Weekend. The festival also included Alfred Hitchcock’s Notorious, the romantic thriller about a U.S. government agent (Cary Grant) and a German war criminal’s daughter (Ingrid Bergman) who plan to infiltrate a Nazi organization. Though it didn’t receive any awards from the Cannes jury that year, the film has come to be regarded as one of the best-ever works by cinema’s “Master of Suspense.”

We hope you’ll join us in our program room on Tuesday, September 21 at 7 PM to see this classic on the big screen!

Run time: 1 hour, 41 minutes. No registration is required. Participants will be expected to follow all current CDC guidelines.
