DOUBLE FEATURE: "Freaks"

- - PLUS Mae West in "She Done Him Wrong"

 

"Freaks" Directed by Tod Browning. 1932, 65mins., B&W. An extraordinary bit of film making that uses real circus sideshow performers to tell a story of love, deceit and revenge, with a frank-for-its-day approach to sexual gamesmanship and violent retribution. Though surprisingly non-exploitative of its characters, the movie scandalized audiences and helped ruin director Tod Browning's career. In recent years it has become a cult classic.

 

"She Done Him Wrong" Starring Mae West, Cary Grant & Noah Beery, Sr. Directed by Lowell Sherman. 1933, 65mins., B&W. Mae West's first and best film, since it was not watered down by the subsequently ascendant censors. It is the ultimate distillation of her charismatic persona of simmering seduction and innuendo-laced one liners.

 

Admission for the DOUBLE FEATURE: $8 Adults; $6 seniors (65+) and kids (12 & younger).

 

 

Saturday, January 29 at 6:30PM

"Morocco" Starring Marlene Dietrich, Gary Cooper & Adolphe Menjou. Directed by Joseph von Sternberg. 1930, 92mins., B&W. Dietrich's iconic performance in top hat and tails and her scandalous (for the day) kiss of another woman created her enduring screen persona of powerful yet androgynous eroticism.

 

Admission: $6 adults / $4 seniors (65+) and kids (12 & younger).

 

 

Saturday, January 29 at 8:30PM

"Baby Face" Starring Barbara Stanwyck, George Brent. Directed by Alfred E. Green. 1933, 71mins., B&W. This amazingly frank drama about a woman sleeping her way to the top was one of the films most often decried by the advocates of movie censorship.

 

Admission: $6 adults / $4 seniors (65+) and kids (12 & younger).

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.

 

PLUS ? Live organ entrance music (from the Loew?s magnificently restored pipe organ) before most screenings.

 

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

 

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

 

The Landmark Loew?s Jersey Theatre receives support from the City of Jersey City, Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy and the Municipal Council, and the Hudson County Open Space Trust Fund, administered by the Hudson County Division of Planning, Thomas A. DeGise, County Executive, and the Board of Chosen Freeholders.
