  • Sunday Cinema Series Resumes August 31

  • A Teacher Transformed, Next In Sunday Cinema Series

    English actor Robert Donat played the title role in the 1939 feature Goodbye, Mr Chips, alongside Irish actress Greer Garson in her first MGM film. This was the role for which Donat would always be remembered, aging on screen from 25 to 83. Many expected Clark Gable to win the Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role, especially since Gone with the Wind was sweeping up, but instead Robert Donat was the surprise winner that year. 

  • Sunday Cinema Series To Continue With Cary Grant Feature

    On Sunday, July 27, Edmond Town Hall Theatre will screen his 1939 feature film, Gunga Din, as part of the 2014 Sunday Cinema Series presented by the Newtown Cultural Arts Commission. Screenings are planned for 1, 4 and 7 pm. Tickets for all shows are $2.

  • Early ‘Little Princess,’ Popular ‘Wizard Of Oz’ To Open 1939 Film Series

    There have been many versions of The Little Princess filmed, and an equal number of films called or based on L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz, but only two were made in 1939. Those two films — one starring a 10-year-old Shirley Temple and the other a Best Picture nominee that features some of film history’s most well-known songs — will launch a new film series at Edmond Town Hall this weekend.
