Digital Cinema Presentation.

Accompanied by HARVEY GUSTAFSON at the keyboard of the Heights Mighty Wurlitzer!

Long before the Vietnam war galvanized American filmmakers to create anti-war films, King Vidor's The Big Parade was an unflinching look at the true cost of war. An idle young man is caught up in war hysteria and enlists, discovering to his horror just what it means to kill or be killed. This monumental picture's extravagant war scenes don't overwhelm its delicate message, and it went on to become the most successful film of the silent era after Birth of a Nation. Don't miss this rare screening.

Creepy and disturbing, Curtiz's Wax Museum is a brilliant examination of artistic obsession. The two-color Technicolor adds a wonderfully bizarre element to the wax figures.

A: The show, which starts with Maud Hixson performing at either 2:00pm or 7:00pm with the movie following immediately after her performance. So you need to be here at the ABSOLUTE LATEST by 2:00pm or 7:00pm because that is when the show officially starts and we do not seat after that.

A: All the seating for these performances is not assigned and is general seating, so the earlier you arrive the better selection of seats you will have, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE A LARGE GROUP.
