It’s also time to start working on your short films/trailers to enter into our annual Shorty Amateur Film/Trailer Contest. Films must be under 3 minutes and must be submitted by June 22. For all the details, go to the Shorty Contest page HERE.

Our new feature this week is Clouds of Sils Maria. A veteran actress (Juliette Binoche) comes face-to-face with an uncomfortable reflection of herself when she agrees to take part in a revival of the play that launched her career 20 years earlier. Tonight is your last chance to see While We’re Young at 7:30.

Our classic film this Sunday is Double Indemnity. An insurance representative, played by Fred MacMurray, lets himself be talked into a murder/insurance fraud scheme that arouses an insurance investigator’s suspicions. Directed by Billy Wilder and also starring Barbara Stanwyck as the scheming seductive Phyllis Dietrichson and Edward G. Robinson as MacMurray’s suspicious boss, this is a film noir classic not to be missed.

Join us next Sunday at 12:30 for an exclusive tour of the theatre and a visit to preview 225 Bridge St. Please RSVP by 5PM Saturday by calling 610-917-1228, giving us the names of all attending.

We will be closed Monday for the Memorial Day holiday. Have a great weekend!

Thanks for your support and we’ll see you at the theatre!
