    Older classic movies, back when movies were made more by people than computers. Film noir, Marx Brothers, Humphrey Bogart, Jimmy Stewart.
  1. Hello TCMisfits! I wanted to remind everyone that one week from today, Sunday April 22, Trylon Cinema will be showing "The Great Sinner", at 3pm. It's part of Trylon's Ava Gardner series, and also stars Gregory Peck and Melvyn Douglas. I don't recall ever seeing it, or even hearing of it, but I'm hoping I get a chance to see it at the Trylon next Sunday. Be careful in the snowl!! - Clark
  2. Hello Twin City Misfits! (TCM Backlot Classic Film Fans); How was the "Grease" showing this past Sunday? I hope everyone had a good time and enjoyed the picture. I messed up and didn't make it to the theater to see it with the rest of the group... It's going to be showing again this coming Saturday at our theater, EMAGINE WILLOW CREEK, 9900 Shelard Pkwy, Plymouth, 2pm. If anyone else from the group goes also, please say hello. I'll be wearing my TCM shirt. - Clark
  3. I Just Watched...

    I just watched "Easter Parade"! I'm thankful to TCM for showing it this Easter evening. What a swell picture it is! I hadn't see it in its entirety before. Fred Astaire, Judy Garland, Ann Miller, and others, were wonderful.
  4. It's kind of exciting to see the chapter on the list! Thanks for letting us know.
  5. Hello All, Speaking of the Trylon Cinema... this weekend it will be showing "The Killing", a 1956 crime/noir movie directed by Stanley Kubrick. In April they will be showing a series of Ava Gardner movies. Mon Apr 2. The Barefoot Contess Sun Apr 8. The Killers Sun Apr 15. On The Beach Sun Apr 22. The Great Sinner Sun Apr 29. Pandora and the Flying Dutchman
  6. I Just Watched...

    I just saw "Crossfire" with Robert Young, Gloria Grahame, and Robert Mitchum, thanks to TCM on demand. It was on this past weekend on Noir Alley. I wasn't able to see it when it was on, but thankfully TCM is allowing it on demand for a while. That was a really good movie. I love noir films, and this has to be one of the best. I had never heard of it before! Robert Young was sure good as the detective on the trail, out to find the killer. Gloria Grahame and Robert Ryan were both nominated for Oscars for best supporting roles. And "Crossfire" was nominated for best picture. If you haven't seen it, I would recommend it, especially if you like noir.
  7. Misfits! Twin Cities Misfits! I like that too.
  8. Yes, the Trylon Cinema does show the classics. A lot of times their programming does not particularly interest me, however. This coming week their are showing "HARAKIRI", a 1962 Japanese film. The Heights Theatre in Columbia Heights will be starting a Hitchcock series starting at the end of this month. On Thursday the 29th they will be showing "The Man Who Knew Too Much". This will be the 1934 version, with Peter Lorre. Hitch did a remake of the Movie in 1956 with Jimmy Stewart and Doris Day.
  9. I won't be able to make it to the movie today. I hope you all have a good time!
  10. I completely agree with you Jessica. That would be a great way to share our love of classic movies. I've always loved the classic films since I was in high school, many years ago. Most people I know only want to see the new movies. I myself do not care much for the computer generated new movies of today. I'd much rather see the older classics. It would be nice to share that with someone who agrees with me at least a little bit.

  12. Hello Twin Cities TCMers! We've been quiet the last few weeks. Sometimes I get busy with other things and find it hard to make time for my love of classic movies. This month TCM on the big screen will have "Vertigo". That's very exciting! I haven't seen that in a theater for many years. I'm definitely planning to go to a showing. - Clark
  13. I would certainly be willing to be our first chapter president if others want me to. I would also support anyone else of us that wants to do it first. I suggest whoever our first chapter president will be, we plan on someone else taking over the position after about 6 months to a year.
  14. Thanks for that recommendation Jessica101559. I haven't seen Splendor in the Grass, but based on your input, I'm putting it on my must-see list. I appreciated your sharing that.
  15. Btw, I noticed the Trylon cinema has a real nice triple feature showing this weekend. They are all starring Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake, "This Gun for Hire", "The Glass Key", and "The Blue Dahlia".
