100 classic films at Proctors

Orson Welles in Citizen Kane

Rosebud is... well, you'll just have to watch.

This is kind of crazy (in the good way): Proctors is starting a series called "Film 100." On Mondays for the next two years it will be showing 100 classic films from the American Film Institute top 100 list (well, not the newest list -- the one that includes movies up to 1996). Films will be drawn from the 1997 and 2007 list, all of them produced between 1912 and 1996.

The first screening is September 17 -- 1942's Yankee Doodle Dandy. Among the films coming up soon: Ben-Hur, The Apartment, The Last Picture Show, Goodfellas, and Unforgiven. The slate for the rest of this year is after the jump.

Tickets for the screenings are $5. A series pass -- yep, for all 100 movies -- is $100.

Proctors says new slates will be announced every so often. Here's the slate for the rest of this year:

This. Is. AWESOME!

What a great idea--I especially love the opportunity to see the films on the mainstage.

I am so excited I just almost burst out in song !

This is a bold and exciting marketing move by Proctors, even for people who won't take advantage of the buck a film package deal. A diverse array of high quality films, many popular genre and not just art house.

Hint to The Palace Theatre in Albany: come up with some kind of theme or something to capture the imagination of movie fans for your movie series.

Can I sell my kids to be able to go for this?

Yay Proctors! SOOOO awesome! I love spending 'quality time' with Proctors.

... So what is the issue with the 250 (or 1000) ft. distance [for blood plasma centers] from residences, schools, or churches? I mean, it's plasma needed to save lives, whether donated or sold. This seems like class bias about the folks opening up their veins for this purpose.
