Silent & Classic Movie Nights – “Titanic” (1953)
Our annual celebration of the Golden Era of Hollywood, Silent & Classic Movie Nights features films from some of the funniest comedy teams, best dramatic actresses, and classic cartoons of the past. Bring a picnic and join us on the lawn for fantastic and fun classic and silent movies at Heritage Square. Sponsored by Vidéothèque Silent & Classic Movie Nights is held on three consecutive Saturdays, July 21 and 28, and August 4.
Saturday, July 28, in remembrance of the 100th anniversary of the sinking, the museum will show “Titanic” (1953), a film featuring the legendary Barbara Stanwyck and Clifton Webb. Unhappily married and uncomfortable with life among the British upper crust, Julia Sturges takes her two children and boards the Titanic for America. Her husband Richard also arranges passage on the doomed luxury liner in order to let him have custody of their two children.
Gates open at 7:30 p.m. for picnics with the show starting after 8:00 p.m. These special screenings will take place on the lawn near the Palms Depot. Guests are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets to sit on, a small picnic to eat before the movies begin, and warm clothing. Beverages and snacks will be available with suggested donation.
