Secret Cinema
On Friday, August 31, the Secret Cinema will bring a popular recent program to our new Main Line outpost. AND THE ENVELOPE, PLEASE: OSCAR-WINNING SHORT FILMS 1932-1968 will feature some shorts familiar to film buffs as well as several that have been completely forgotten. We feel they all deserve to be seen again! These include live-action short dramas and comedies, documentaries and cartoons, from America and abroad (this is the same program that was presented at the Fleisher Art Memorial last February).

This will be our second screening at The Living Room at 35 East, in the heart of downtown Ardmore. Singer-songwriter Laura Mann recently opened this intimate space to provide a comfortable setting for the enjoyment of live music, poetry, comedy and now, films. Our May Secret Cinema presentation here was sold out, so advance tickets are recommended (see for details).

The Living Room at 35 East serves coffee, soft drinks and snacks, but is BYOB for alcohol.

There will be one complete show at 8:00 pm. Admission is $13.00

As usual, this Secret Cinema program will be projected in 16mm film on a giant screen (not video).

A few highlights of the program include:

THE MUSIC BOX (1932, Dir: James Parrott) - The most famous, and arguably funniest and best short comedy of Laurel and Hardy is built around the simplest premise: Stan and Ollie must move a piano up a large set of stairs. Director Parrott was the younger brother of another comedy star at the Hal Roach studio, Charlie Chase.

GLASS (1959, Dir: Bert Haanstra) - This wordless look at glassmaking in Holland was perfectly edited and synchronized to a lively jazz score, and resulted in a startling new (and oft-imitated) style of documentary film.

THE GOLDEN FISH (1959, Dir: Edmond S├ęchan) - Jacques Cousteau produced this charming little film, about a boy who wins a goldfish at a carnival, and the drama that develops when he leaves his new pet alone with a cat. Besides an Oscar, THE GOLDEN FISH also won the International Critics' Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

WHY MAN CREATES (1968, Dir: Saul Bass) - This unusual, multi-dimensional film was made by Saul Bass, the graphic designer best known for his highly-original title sequences for feature films by Otto Preminger and Alfred Hitchcock. In a series of segments employing animation, graphics and live-action, the film earnestly (and sometimes whimsically) explores the age-old riddle of the title.

Plus THE CRITIC (1963), HAPPY ANNIVERSARY (1962), and more!
