I can do a one liner from nearly all of those classics, but my favorites have to be:

"You call this a family, why do we have to have all these kids"

"Have fun storming the castle"

"We're gonna need a bigger boat"

Rocky on a Monday? That's kinda no fun.

Also, this schedule goes head to head with the Proctor's/AFI classics series. Not too sure how I feel about that.

For the past 6 years we have always shown our movie series (with a few select exceptions) on Monday nights from September through May starting at 7PM. Rocky Horror is always a blast and draws a tremendous crowd annually.

Hope you can make it!

Does the Palace still have 70mm capabilities? I wonder if they'll shown PTA's THE MASTER down the road.

I took a friend who'd never seen "It's a Wonderful Life" to the Palace's screening a couple years ago and we both had a blast. Nothing like seeing classic movies in the area's the greatest movie palace.

The Palace goes out of its way to not only show the classics on FILM, but to toss in all sorts of extra on-screen goodies before the film. You never know what you're going to see BEFORE the show, and it's always a blast.

The film series at Proctors will mostly be eminating from the GE theatre, which basically means it will be nothing but a DVD showing on what amounts to be an incredibly massive TV projection screen.

Classics on film with bonuses, or digital projection with minimal-to-nothing added in? It's an easy choice.
