Next Screening: The Way Ahead (aka Immortal Battalion, 1944) directed by Carol Reed (!!!) starring David Niven and William Hartnell
This patriotic and beautifully filmed British WWII film features David Niven as one of a group of draftees woefully unprepared for the horrors of war. But after a grueling training regimen they get dropped into North Africa for a showdown with the Nazis. Directed by the legendary genius Carol Reed and also featuring William Hartnell (the first Dr. Who) in a supporting role, this is a war film that’s not to be missed by any fans of the genre.
This CMNYK screening is going down at the Darkside Cinema on Tuesday, March 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 former butter sculpting enthusiast, Ygal Kaufman, as well as newsreels, shorts, cartoons, soundies and other weird treats from 1944 to make the experience extra authentic. See you all there!
