EXIT STAGE CENTER AND SPECTACULAR HEROICS, OH MY!
Saturday, September 21, 2013
Your friends at 2nd and B in Ashland invite you to join us for our monthly Old Time Movie Night. Saturday, September 21, 2013.
It's opera night at The Hollywood Bowl and in front of 20,000 die-hard fans, brilliant tenor Gino D'Acosta (Leo Carrillo) is the victim of murder right in the middle of his aria. Whodunit? How? Why? It's up to a L.A. cop (Chester Morris) and his sweetheart (Madge Evans) to find out, from a large cast of suspects. It's 1936's "MOONLIGHT MURDER." See if you can spot the killer before he-or-she strikes again!
After our usual intermission of vintage drive-in snack-bar ads and coming attraction previews, we are pleased to celebrate the 75th anniversary of a 3 time Academy Award winning classic adventure film, made for the entire family.
Errol Flynn, Olivia DeHavilland, Basil Rathbone and the cream of Hollywood's players in the silver screen's definitive swashbuckler, 1938's "THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD." There have been many Robin Hood films since but none have equaled this masterpiece of the stuff Saturday matinee dreams were made of: A dashing hero, a lovely maiden, an evil prince aided by a wicked confederate, all backed up by an outstanding musical score by Erich Wolfgang Korngold (which won one of it's 3 Oscars)...all in glorious Technicolor. Don't miss this GEM!
Our reasonably priced snack-bar will be open most of the evening, so bring a hearty appetite. To quote Robin: "To the tables everyone, and stuff yourselves!" Be sure and tell you friends, relatives and neighbors about this fabulous family friendly presentation. It hits the entertainment bullseye perfectly!
The movies are FREE! Yep...there's NO charge for admission, but
donations are gladly accepted.
Doors and snack-bar open at 6:00 p.m. and the movies start at 6:30 p.m.
If you can please consider bringing something for the Ashland
Emergency Food Bank.
Our focus from the beginning of this monthly ministry is visitors. We know that many people find the first visit to a church to be a daunting experience. On movie night a newcomer is greeted by smiling faces at the snack bar. Our folk are hospitable and friendly and not pushy. So bring a neighbor or family member who needs a new look at Christians and those receptive people at the Christian Church of Ashland. Corner of 2nd and B Streets in Ashland.
