The Sebastiani Theatre Foundation continues its Vintage Film Series with classic movies showing one Monday each month, through June 2014.
Movie lovers of all ages now have the opportunity to experience these classic films the way they were meant to be seen – on the big screen. A fundraising effort by the Sebastiani Theatre Foundation, the Vintage Film Series brings some of the most memorable classic films back to the historic Sebastiani Theatre on the Sonoma Plaza.
This year, the Vintage Film Series includes:
• Monday, Feb. 17, 7 p.m. “Camelot” (1967), directed by Joshua Logan, the movie stars Richard Harris, Vanessa Redgrave, and Franco Nero. Written by Alan Jay Lerner (screenplay based on the play “Camelot”) and T. H. White (the book, ”The Once and Future King”), this film is about the marriage of England’s King Arthur to Guinevere. The plot of illegitimate Modred to gain the throne and Guinevere’s growing attachment to Sir Lancelot threaten to topple Arthur and destroy his “roundtable” knights. Rated G.
• Monday, March 10, 7 p.m., “Rain Man” (1988), directed by Barry Levinson and starring Dustin Hoffman, Tom Cruise and Valeria Golino. Written by Barry Morrow (story and screenplay) and Ronald Bass (screenplay), “Rain Man” is the story of two brothers, who journey across the country together – selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt and autistic savant Raymond, who is the heir to almost all of their father’s fortune. Rated R.
