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.
