    Back for our third big year!

    The Spring 2005 season of Big Screen Classics begins this Saturday March 12 at the historic Lafayette Theatre in Suffern, NY with the western favorite, THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN. Showtime is 11:30am - doors open at 11 - so come early and hear Jeff Barker playing the Mighty Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ for your pre-show enjoyment.

    The Lafayette is a restored 1000-seat neighborhood movie palace in downtown Suffern, New York - an easy ride from anywhere in the New York/New Jersey area. First opened in 1924, the Lafayette has been lovingly restored and features modern projection and sound equipment. All films are presented in 35mm.

    Here is the lineup:

    March 12 - THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN
    March 19 - Orson Welles’ TOUCH OF EVIL
    March 26 - Irving Berlin’s EASTER PARADE
    April 2 - Stanley Kubrick’s DR. STRANGELOVE or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
    April 16 - CAPTAIN BLOOD
    April 23 - Alfred Hitchcock’s SUSPICION
    April 30 - GODZILLA (Gojira) - The original, uncut, Japanese-language version!
    May 7 - SOMEWHERE IN TIME
    May 14 - Frank Capra’s LOST HORIZON
    May 21 - Frank Tashlin’s WHO’S MINDING THE STORE? starring Jerry Lewis
    May 28 - THE GLENN MILLER STORY
    June 4 - FOOTLIGHT PARADE
    June 11 - THE LOONEY TUNES & THREE STOOGES EXTRAVAGANZA
    June 18 - YANKEE DOODLE DANDY

    We also have an upcoming silent film festival, THE SOUNDS OF SILENTS, on April 8-9-10, 2005. We will be featuring nine incredible programs of silent features and short subjects, and all will show with live musical accompaniment. Performers include DENNIS JAMES, ROBERT ISRAEL, THE MONT ALTO MOTION PICTURE ORCHESTRA, JEFF BARKER, MICHAEL HOLMES, DONALD SOSIN, JOHN BARATTA, and BEN MODEL. The complete schedule of films and performers will be announced on Saturday.

    Hope to see you there. Any Home Theatre Forum member who can make it to a show is invited to take a tour of the projection booth - just let me know.

    Remember, "You get more out of life when you go out to a movie."
