‘Rain Man’ next film in Sebastiani series

By

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.

Next up at 7 p.m. Monday, March 10, is “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.

Upcoming films include:

• Monday, April 14, 7 p.m., “The Maltese Falcon.”

• Monday, May 19, 7 p.m., “After The Thin Man.”

• Monday, June 16, 7 p.m., “The Odd Couple.”

Vintage Film Series tickets can be purchased for $8 per individual movie. Tickets are available in advance or at the door. Vintage Film Series ticket packets are now available for $40 for the entire upcoming series, a savings of $8.

Wine by the glass will be offered for sale at the Monday evening screenings. All proceeds will benefit the Sebastiani Theatre Foundation. Patrons are invited to “dress in the era” for each film. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and showtime for each vintage film is 7 p.m. To purchase tickets in advance or ticket series packets, call 996-9756.
