The Town Hall Theatre Says Farewell to Film

With the digital installation scheduled for the first week of the new year the Town Hall Theatre is entering its final days of screening films on their two-projector change over system.

“The digital conversion is a bittersweet change,” Valladao adds. “We my still show movies on film, but they will be spooled on a single projector with an intermission if we do. We are very excited for what the future will bring, but it is also with sadness that we will archive our vintage system.”

You are advised to call the movie line at 283-1140 to confirm scheduled film dates.

The January 2nd to 5th movie will be the last that the Town Hall Theatre screens in the old way, so management wanted to do something special to make those last days an occasion to remember. “I had been trying to get a print of The Princess Bride several times over the last couple of years and the dates never worked,” explains Roxanne Valladao who books films for the theatre. “Having it all fall into place for this final run of film made is seem all the more special. This way we can all make our goodbyes as see one of the most fun films classic cult films once again on the big screen.”

THE PRINCESS BRIDE plays Friday to Monday, January 2nd to 5th.

Torture. Revenge. Giants. Monsters. An Evil Prince. A Beautiful Princess. Chases. Escapes. True love. Miracles. And even kissing. As the grandfather reads the story, the action comes alive. The story is a classic tale of love and adventure as the beautiful Buttercup, engaged to the odious Prince Humperdinck, is kidnapped and held against her will in order to start a war. It is up to Westley (her childhood beau, now returned as the Dread Pirate Roberts) to save her. On the way he meets a thief and his hired helpers, an accomplished swordsman and a huge, super strong giant, both of whom become Westley's companions in his quest in search of true love.
The all star cast includes: Mandy Patinkin, Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest, Carol Kane, Wallace Shawn, Chris Sarandon, Andre The Giant, Peter Cook, Mel Smith, Fred Savage and Peter Falk.
