The Vintage Film Festival - Cobourg & Port Hope

Twenty three years ago (1992), a group of film enthusiasts involved in the restoration of the Marie Dressler house had a wild idea. Why not hold a festival showing the films in which Marie Dressler had starred? This seemingly fantastic idea grew into the present form, in which we show a variety of films generally made before about 1955.

The weekend is best enjoyed as an event and not just a collection of great movies. We start with a Gala reception in Historic Victoria Hall in Cobourg followed by two films. Then on Saturday we move to the restored atmospheric Capitol Theatre in Port Hope to show a collection of six movies that range from very old, silent films starring Mary Pickford, Erich von Stroheim or Douglas Fairbanks, to talkies and musicals. Over the weekend, we show 2 or 3 silent movies accompanied by a live piano. We often include a film starring Marie Dressler. On Sunday we show four more classics.
