Program for the Twenty-Sixth Annual Vintage Film Festival

This year is the 150th birthday of Marie Dressler so we will feature three of her movies including the rarely seen Christopher Bean.  This was her last movie.  Because it's a special birthday, there are a number of special events planned.  More on the Marie Dressler web site here.

Ticket prices are a bit higher than last year - see the Ticket page. The best value by far is the Festival pass which gives you: 

  • The 12 regular program movies
  • A bonus movie Friday afternoon (for Friday and Weekend pass holders only).
  • The Gala Reception with light refreshments
  • The very popular "Brown bag Lunch" - the topic this year is TBD.

Note that registration at the door is required. You can also buy the Friday Gala only (includes 3 films and Reception). Singles will be available only at the door at $10.00 for all movies.

Below is a list of the films to be shown.  Click the Title of any film to go to a page with additional information (coming soon).  For each film, you will go to a page of information including photos, a review and if available, a trailer.
