Film: “Peter Pan”

Thursday, November 16, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater, 19053 Mt. Pony Rd.
Culpeper, VA 22701 United States

“Peter Pan” (Paramount, 1924) The first film adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s enormously successful 1902 stage play “Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up,” remains one of the silent era’s most successful fantasies, notable not only for Betty Bronson’s exquisitely stylized performance as Peter, but also for its elaborate settings and special effects. Directed by Herbert Brenon and featuring Mary Brian as Wendy and Anna May Wong as Tiger Lily, the film closely follows the plot of the original play, and even
goes so far as to incorporate much of its original stage dialogue in the intertitles. Thought to be lost for decades, James Card, film restorer and curator of George Eastman House in Rochester, New York, discovered a well-preserved copy in a vault at the Eastman School of Music in the 1950s, and made a preservation of that source. Film historian David Pierce (and now Assistant Chief of the Library of Congress National Audio Visual Conservation Center) discovered an additional and hitherto unknown 16mm copy at the Disney Studios which had been made when the company acquired the rights to the property in 1938. A new restoration was undertaken by the George Eastman House combining the two sources in 1994. “Peter Pan” was added to the National Film Registry in 2000. London based musician Stephen Horne will provide live musical accompaniment for the film. 7:30 p.m. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations taken.

Film: “The Scarlet Letter”

Friday, November 17, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater, 19053 Mt. Pony Rd.
Culpeper, VA 22701 United States

(MGM, 1927) Lillian Gish stars in this adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s 1850 novel as Hester Prynne, who engages in an adulterous relationship with the Reverend Dimmesdale (Lars Hanson) in Puritan New England. Gish, one of the most respected and popular actresses of her time, managed to get the film made by winning over a number of women’s and church groups around the country who considered the subject matter of the book unacceptable for the movies. Her pristine reputation, combined with a tasteful script by the great Hollywood screenwriter Frances Marion, caused them to change their minds and give the project their blessing. Directed by Swedish actor and filmmaker Victor Seastrom (Sjöström), the film also stars Henry B. Walthall, Karl Dane, William H. Tooker and Marcelle Corday. London based musician Stephen Horne will provide live accompaniment for the film. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA.
No reservations taken.

Film: “Casablanca”

Thursday, November 30, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater, 19053 Mt. Pony Rd.
Culpeper, VA 22701 United States

(Warner Bros., 1942) One of the most beloved of American films, this captivating romantic adventure directed by Michael Curtiz is the story of world-weary ex-freedom fighter Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) who runs a nightclub in Casablanca during the early part of WWII. Despite pressure from the local authorities, led by the wily Capt. Renault (Claude Rains), Rick’s cafe has become a haven for refugees. One of those refugees is Rick’s true love who deserted him when the Nazis invaded Paris (Ingrid Bergman) and her Resistance leader husband (Paul Henreid). How the triangle would resolve itself wasn’t known even to cast members until the last days of filming. The film’s dialog and the timeliness of world events swirling around Casablanca, Morocco made the eventual Best Picture winner a favorite with wartime audiences. “Casablanca” was among the first movies added
to the National Film Registry in its inaugural year, 1989. This month marks the 75th anniversary of the film’s premiere. 7:30 p.m. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations taken.

December 2017

Film: “Street Scene” & “Stingaree”

Friday, December 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater, 19053 Mt. Pony Rd.
Culpeper, VA 22701 United States

Double Feature: Great Directors – King Vidor and William Wellman “Street Scene” (United Artists, 1931) When Hollywood’s major independent producer Samuel Goldwyn set out to make a motion picture of Elmer Rice’s Pulitzer Prizewinning play “Street
Scene,” he chose noted director King Vidor to helm the production. Vidor was known for his skill at handling social issues in such films as “The Big Parade” (1925), “The Crowd” (1928) and “Hallelujah” (1929). He had been one of the first directors to move the camera after the arrival of talking pictures, which was excellent preparation for adapting the one-set play. Depicting the events of two days in a New York tenement, this Pre-code drama stars Sylvia Sidney in a role that established her as a notable leading lady. Goldwyn hired eight actors from the original stage cast including Beulah Bondi and John Qualen, who would go on to notable careers as character actors. The film had great box office success and brought Goldwyn some of the best reviews of his career. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations taken.

“Stingaree” (RKO Radio, 1934) Oscar winning screenwriter-director William A. Wellman, considered one of the premier directors of Hollywood’s Golden Age, had a career spanning four decades and multiple genres. “Stingaree” is one of six RKO films of the 1930s previously thought “lost” but rediscovered and restored by Turner Classic Movies. The films were sold out of the RKO library to producer Merian C. Cooper in 1946. Extensive legal negotiations and a search of the world’s film archives allowed TCM to claim the films and create new 35mm prints in association with the Library of Congress and the BYU Motion Picture Archive. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations taken.
