An event for the whole family, you will not want to miss this rare Thanksgiving Day screening of one of Laurel & Hardy's most ambitious and charming feature films, Babes In Toyland. Stannie Dum (Stan Laurel) and Ollie Dee (Oliver Hardy) rent rooms in Mother Peep's shoe in Toyland. When Mother Peep can't make her mortgage payment to evil Silas Barnaby, he attempts to blackmail her into having Little Bo-Peep marry him, despite the girl's attachment to Tom-Tom Piper. Stannie and Ollie offer their assistance to Mother Peep, Bo-Peep and Piper, and later enlist an army of wooden soldiers to battle Barnaby's cave-dwelling bogeymen.
For years known as March of the Wooden Soldiers, we will be screening the original complete 1934 Black & White version.
This special screening will also include the 1929 Laurel & Hardy Silent short "BIG BUSINESS" accompanied by HARVEY GUSTAFSON at the Heights Mighty Wurlitzer!
This early Tim Burton classic unleashed a more-manic-than-usual Michael Keaton as the eponymous demon, and gave Winona Ryder her first major role. The story of a cute married couple (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) who are killed in a car accident and then try to haunt the awful couple who try and wreck their beloved home, Beetlejuice was a surprise hit, supremely silly and genuinely scary as only Burton films can be.
In the heart of New York City, in one of its most high-end apartments, lurks an evil that sent filmgoers into a frenzy fifty years ago. Rosemary's Baby captured America's attention in 1968, a horrifying distraction from one of the most turbulent years in our history. The story of Rosemary Woodhouse (Mia Farrow), who moves into The Bradford Apartments with her actor husband Guy (John Cassavetes), only to discover a nightmare world of suicide, cults, and Satanism. At once a disturbing look at motherhood and power, Rosemary's Baby is also simply one of the most entertaining scary movies ever made.
Do we really need to explain this one? Perhaps no movie musical is as beloved as Singin' in the Rain, which has sold out the Heights Theater three times in the last four years, and this year will be presented in 35mm! What a wonderful feeling!
Found Footage Festival hosts Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (Late Show with David Letterman) take audiences on a guided tour of their all-time favorite VHS finds. From the curiously-produced industrial training video to the forsaken home movie donated to Goodwill, the Found Footage Festival resurrects these forgotten treasures and serves them up in a lively celebration of all things found.
Join us for a night of thrills and chills with the super rare The Last Warning, which has been painstakingly restored to all its visual glory by Universal Pictures. A theater is reopened five years after a murder was committed there during a performance; will the killer strike again? Leni's last film before his untimely death features flamboyant camera moves and opulent production design that make this an extra special treat on the big screen!
This special screening will be accompanied by DREAMLAND FACES!
PG-13for brief strong language
