Only days left until the
2024 Festival.

October 18, 19, 20, 2024

The Marie Dressler Foundation's Vintage Film Festival returns for its 29th annual edition, on the big screen at Port Hope's beautiful Capitol Theatre, posteron October 21st, 22nd & 23rd! Buy tickets here: a full weekend pass for $79 admits you to all 13 movies, as well as Sunday's lunchtime talk: "Dangerous Dames: Celebrating the Women of Pre-Code Gangster Films". Single tickets are just $10 per screening, or free at the door for anyone 25 or under. And the popcorn is free for everyone, all weekend!

The theme of this year's program is "breakout roles": those performances that transformed actors into movie stars, that lifted them into the ranks of the A-list, that boosted them onto a new plateau of celebrity! See the full program here: there is definitely something for everyone! Every decade from the Twenties to the Seventies is represented, as well as a huge range of vintage film genres: melodrama, gangster, horror, screwball comedy, film noir – as well as classic drama and comedy, and even something for the young people. As usual, we've made sure to share a musical, a foreign film offering, and two silent films which will be presented with live piano accompaniment.

Buy your tickets now for the Vintage Film Festival, October 21-23 at Port Hope's Capitol Theatre!
