The second annual weekend of Classic Comedy is coming to the Loew's Jersey movie palace.

We are pleased to present the 70th Anniversary of Laurel and Hardy's classic 1933 comedy SONS OF THE DESERT, presented in a stunning 35mm print. This will screen in the afternoon on Saturday, March 29, and there will also be selected short subjects for your viewing pleasure.

Saturday evening, March 29, we present An Evening with The Marx Brothers and the 3 Stooges. We will screen A NIGHT AT THE OPERA, along with THREE LITTLE BEERS, A-PLUMBING WE WILL GO and BRIDELESS GROOM.

Sunday afternoon, March 30, we will honor the legendary Bob Hope, in recognition of his upcoming 100th birthday. The classic Hope/Crosby feature ROAD TO MOROCCO will be shown, along with THE SEVEN LITTLE FOYS, presented in a gorgeous, archival dye-transfer Technicolor print!

All films will be shown with authentic carbon arc illumination, as they were originally seen in theatres. For more information, please visit our website at www.loewsjersey.org

Don't miss this unique opportunity to experience rare, 35mm prints in one of the Metropolitan Areas finest surviving movie palaces. Bring your friends, bring your family and enjoy the classic movie going experience at the magnificent Loew's Jersey Theatre!

As there has been some colorful debate about the meaning of "Director-approved" transfers and how it relates to how widespread 1.66 was in the UK, I will make the following point. The dominant aspect ratio at British Studios between 1955-1970 WAS 1.75. This is based on research going through trade listings of hundreds of British films, as well as studio archives and other primary sources. 1.85 was the second most listed aspect ratio, with 1.65/1.66 a distant third.

SONS OF THE DESERT

Posted Image I am sooo tempted to travel across PA and NJ to see this, but there is no way I'll be able to make time for it (I already used up my unscheduled cross-state trip funds on the 70mm Lawrence of Arabia in NYC last fall).

I will definitely be letting my brother know, as he's been to several classic films at Loew's and is nearly the L&H fan I am.

We've just added the classic 1933 Our Gang short MUSH AND MILK to the Saturday afternoon Laurel and Hardy show.

Here's your chance to see Old Cap get his back pension in a pristine 35mm print made directly from the original nitrate camera negative!
