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.”

The classiest and screwiest classic screwball comedy of all time. Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon), a couple of down-on-their-luck musicians, witness a gangland massacre perpetrated by crime lord Spats Columbo (George Raft) and have to get out of town fast. Disguising themselves as women, Joe (now Josephine) and Jerry (now Daphne) seek refuge with an all-girl band fronted by torch singer Sugar Kane Kowalczyk (Marilyn Monroe). Off they go to Florida with the Mob in full pursuit.
