The fall film series at the Bing Crosby Theater, 901 W. Sprague, has been set:
- Sept. 27, "Some Like It Hot," the great 1959 Billy Wilder classic with Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis.
- Oct. 11, "Giant," the 1956 James Dean-Elizabeth Taylor epic.
- Oct. 25, "Charade," the ultimate '60s caper thriller, with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn.
- Oct. 29, the Halloween Show featuring "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (the 1949 version narrated by Bing Crosby), "Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy" and the 1978 Jamie Lee Curtis screamfest, "Halloween."
All shows are at 7 p.m. except the Halloween Show, which starts at 6 p.m.
This beautifully restored 1915 movie house is a great place to see these classic films. The series is also a great bargain. It's free.
However, a $5 donation is suggested, with proceeds going to the Advocates for the Bing Crosby Theater, which has been instrumental in supporting this great old theater.
