Event Details

$5 Classic Movie Night | Paramount Theatre

Experience the great films of Hollywood’s Golden Era in one of America’s finest Art Deco movie palaces.

With over 3,000 seats and a meticulously-restored interior, the Paramount offers a true “Movie Palace” experience straight out of the 1930s – with period newsreels, cartoons, previews, live music from the Mighty Wurlitzer organ and the audience participation spinning wheel game of “Dec-O-Win.”

Goldfinger (1964)

James Bond, Agent 007, is back! His assignment this time is to track millionaire gold smuggler Auric Goldfinger who has hatched a plot to “neutralize” the United States gold reserve at Fort Knox. Goldfinger won’t put up with Bond’s interference with his nefarious plans and unleashes one of the most memorable of all of Agent 007’s adversaries – the mute Korean strongman, Oddjob. Just as unforgettable as the villains are the Bond women – the 24-karat Jill Masterson, and the (unattainable?) Pussy Galore.

Sean Connery’s performance of Agent 007 achieves brutally suave perfection in this, the third Bond film, which set the standard for the entire series and established the hallmarks of the succeeding movies: the action-packed pre-title sequence, the memorable title song, and the incredible gadgets. Bond’s Aston Martin makes its film debut, with its bulletproof windows, front-mounted machine guns, oil slicks, smoke screens, and passenger ejector seat. Goldfinger deservedly took home the Oscar for Special Sound Effects.
