UPCA is joining the National Screening Day as over 160 movie theatres across the U.S. screen the film adaptation of George Orwell’s classic novel about a future controlled by a totalitarian government. The date was chosen because it is the day the story’s lead character begins rebelling against his oppressive government by keeping a forbidden diary. It was also Richard Burton’s last screen appearance.

Rodgers & Hammerstein's cinematic treasure, "The Sound of Music" is the winner of five Academy Awards, including Best Picture. In this true-life story, Julie Andrews lights up the screen as Maria, a spirited young Austrian woman who leaves the convent to become a governess for Captain von Trapp's (Christopher Plummer) seven unruly children. Her charm and songs soon win the hearts of the children - and their father. But when Nazi Germany unites with Austria, Maria is forced to attempt a daring escape with her new family.

Starring Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, and Eleanor Parker. Directed by Robert Wise. Written by Ernest Lehman. 2 hours 54 minutes. 1965. In English.

Movies That Reawaken Wonder - 2017

“Movies That Reawaken Wonder” celebrates the magic of movies and movie-going. It explores why we fall in love with films, such as how “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” evokes “the wonder of childhood” and “Night of the Living Dead” conjures “the wonder of horror.” To honor the theatre’s vaudeville past, live entertainment is packaged with the screenings. For example, a live organ accompanies Charlie Chaplin’s “City Lights” and Donna Reed’s daughter Mary Owen introduces the holiday favorite “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Additional pre-show entertainment will be announced as each movie nears. As part of an ongoing campaign to complete the theatre’s cinematic sound upgrade, the November selection will be UPCA’s gala fundraiser featuring a celebrity introduction, which we plan to announce this spring.
