This is a great use of the Palace Theater on an "off night"---and a greatly expanded program of films. It's a nice complement to the long-time film series (classic, arty, foreign, or silent films) sponsored by the Writers Institute at Page Hall Friday nights.

this is one of my favorite things about albany! especially during the cold months when it's hard(er) to find things to do. unfortunately, my old-movie-film-buff pal moved across the country over the summer, so i'll have to find someone else willing to go with me

I've already marked my calendar for "The Ten Commandments"

Some of these will be spectacular on the big screen. I've always wanted to see Bridge Over the River Kwai in all its glory.

This is a GREAT way to spend a sunday evening :)

You bet your sweet ass there's onstage performers during Rocky Horror- And we're called the Whip-It Outskirts. We're bringing it back baby.

Just saw that the price per ticket is only $4 per person if you use your SEFCU Visa Check Card.
