Remember Last Night poster

This winter and spring join us for murder and mystery! Film collector, historian and preservationist Eric Grayson will be sharing some of his favorite vintage films one night each month. Each film is preceded by a vintage cinematic “short.”

Remember Last Night? (1935)

Directed by James Whale. Starring Robert Young and Constance Cummings. Another mystery-comedy where couples awaken after a party to discover the party’s host has been murdered, but they’re too impaired to remember the details. (Runtime 81 min.)

Saturday, Feb 16

7:00 pm

Tickets are available at the door on the night of the film for $4 each. Popcorn, candy and drinks are available for $1 apiece.

Buy a movie pass and see 6 movies for the price of 5, plus free popcorn!
