A Not-For-Profit Arts Center In A Historic Movie Palace

 

 

 

Friday, October 2 at 8PM:

?The Untouchables? ? Starring Kevin Costner, Sean Connery, Robert De Niro, Charles Martin Smith, Andy Garcia. Directed by Brian De Palma. (119mins., 1987, Color, Paramount) Chicago of the Prohibition-era 1920's and early ?30s is convincingly recreated, and the classic Hollywood gangster picture is brilliantly re-imagined in this modern masterpiece. Connery won Best Supporting Oscar, but all five stars give unforgettable performances.

 

Admission is just $6 for adults, $4 for seniors (65+), children (12 & younger) and students with ID.

 

 

 

Saturday, October 3 at 4PM:

?The Cocoanuts? -- Starring The Marx Brothers (Groucho, Harpo, Chico & Zeppo) and Margaret Dumont. Music by Irving Berlin. (96mins., 1929, B&W, Paramount) This last great comedy of the 1920?s was also The Marx Bros. first film. And it was the first great comedy of the talking picture era!

 

Admission is just $6 for adults, $4 for seniors (65+), children (12 & younger) and students with ID.

 

 

Saturday, October 3 at 8PM:

?Safety Last? ? Starring Harold Lloyd, Mildred Davis, Bill Strothers, Noah Young. (78mins, 1923, B&W, Hal Roach Productions)

-- Silent, shown with LIVE ORGAN accompaniment by Ralph Ringstad, Jr. on the Loew?s Wonder Morton.** One of the greatest comedies of the 1920's, ?Safety Last? includes the iconic scene of Lloyd hanging from the hands of a clock high atop a building. Don?t miss this RARE chance to see it as it was meant to be enjoyed ? on the BIG screen with live organ accompaniment.

 

Admission is just $7 for adults, $5 for seniors (65+), children (12 & younger) and students with ID.

 

 

Combo Discounts available for ?The Untouchables? and ?The Cocoanuts?. (?Safety Last? is not included in the combo offer.)

 

** The Loew's Wonder Morton is one of the Metro Area's finest surviving theatre organs. Not electronic, not a synthesizer, the organ is a genuine wind instrument with 1,779 pipes and four ranks (keyboards). Its rich, enveloping sound opens a portal back to the 1920?s and the era of silent movies.

 

 

The Loew's Is Easy To Get To: The Loew's Jersey Theatre, at 54 Journal Square, Jersey City, NJ, is directly across JFK Boulevard from the JSQ PATH Center with trains to and from Lower and Midtown Manhattan and Newark's Penn Station, is minutes from the NJ Turnpike & is easily reached by car or mass transit from throughout the Metro Area.

 

Half-price off-street parking is available in Square Ramp Garage adjoining the Loew's. Patrons present a coupon to garage attendant when they leave. Coupon is available at our box office.

 

What's Special About Seeing A Movie At The Loew's? The Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre is one of America's grandest surviving Movie Palaces. We show movies the way they were meant to be seen: in a grandly ornate setting -- on our BIG 50 ft wide screen! The Loew's runs reel-to-reel, not platter, projection, which often allows us to screen an archival or studio vault print that is the best available copy of a movie title.

 

The Loew's Jersey is managed by Friends of the Loew's, Inc. as a non-profit, multi-discipline performing arts center.

 

For directions or more information: Call (201) 798-6055 or visit www.loewsjersey.org.

 

 

Classic Film Weekends are presented by Friends of the Loew's, Inc.
