A Star is Born (1937) Tuesday, September 22 @ 7 PM

Starring Janet Gaynor, Fredric March, Adolphe Menjou and May Robson, directed by William Wellman. The twice remade classic about the harsh realities of showbiz is screened here in all its Technicolor StarBornPRINTglory. Gaynor stars as the young starlet breaking in to Hollywood who falls in love with seasoned vet Fredric March. But his self loathing and alcoholism threatens to bring down their whole happy existence. This version is indisputably (inasmuch as there’s nobody here to dispute it right now) superior to both the Judy Garland remake of 1954 and the Barbara Streisand remake of 1976. And this star studded masterpiece by one of the greatest directors of all time, the brilliant William Wellman, is at CMNYK for one week only.
This CMNYK event is going down at the Darkside Cinema on Tuesday, September 22nd, and the fun starts at 7:00 PM. As always, admission is FREE, but donations are welcomed and benefit the Darkside Cinema renovations. The show will be preceded by an intro from amateur gardener and professional eater, Ygal Kaufman, as well as newsreels, shorts, cartoons and other vintage goodies from 1937 to make the experience extra authentic. See you all there!
And make sure to stop by our sponsor, The Majestic Theatre, for all their great programming. And don’t forget to check out Ygal acting in An Adult Evening of Shel Silverstein, 9/11-9/20 at the Majestic!
