Classic Films Coming to State


Classic Films Coming This Month to
Modesto’s Historic State Theatre
By Randy Siefkin

Rosalind Russell reprises her Broadway triumph as Auntie Mame, 1958’s madcap screen comedy, on Sunday, January 18, at 3 p.m. at Modesto’s historic State Theatre. Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Auntie Mame also features Forrest Tucker, Fred Clark and Peggy Cass.

Kyle Barker will present a pre film organ concert, and those attending are encouraged to dress like a character from the film or as they would have when the film was originally released.

Tickets for Auntie Mame are $8 each and are available at the State Theatre box office weekdays from noon to 3 p.m., by calling 527-4697 on line at www.thestate.org, or at the door. Discounts are offered to Film Society members.

The Film Society’s February lineup includes 1967’s Best Picture winner In The Heat of Night, starring Sidney Poitier, Rod Steiger and Lee Grant on Sunday, February 15, and the romantic comedy Groundhog Day, starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell, on Sunday, February 22.

The Modesto Film Society is an affiliate of the historic, nonprofit State Theatre and is dedicated to promoting classic film and classic film exhibition. More information is available at 527-4697, at membership@thestate.org, or at The State’s web site www.thestate.org, where film fans can find more information about The Society’s past and future screenings.
