Double Holiday Feature at the Aero

Movies with Holiday Spirit,
Screwball Comedies & Big Screen Classics

This Friday, the American Cinematheque is hosting a holiday double feature at the Aero. There's a similar program playing at the Egyptian as well. Follow the link to see their schedule.

Friday, December 18 - 7:30 PM
Double Feature: A CHRISTMAS STORY, 1983, Warner Bros., 94 min. Dir. Bob Clark. This nostalgic cult Christmas comedy, told from the perspective of Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsley), focuses on his overwhelming desire to get "an official Red Ryder, carbine-action, 200-shot range model air rifle," despite the fact that all the adults around him tell him that he’ll "shoot his eye out"!

REMEMBER THE NIGHT, 1940, Universal, 94 min. Dir. Mitchell Leisen. In this romantic holiday classic, Barbara Stanwyck is arrested for shoplifting during the Christmas season. District Attorney Fred MacMurray is assigned to prosecute her, but instead falls in love. Preston Sturges (SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS) wrote the witty and surprisingly nostalgic script just before he turned to directing.

If You Go:

The Aero Theatre
1328 Montana Avenue at 14th Street in Santa Monica

I'd never heard of Remember the Night, had you? I'd love to see it, but I'm not sure I'll make it due to my work schedule. Definitely something to add to my netflix queue. Leave a comment on the blog if you attend the event, so I'll know for next time!
