Introducing the Silver Screen Series

    Beginning this October, we delve into the film archives of the Michael G. Fitzgerald Collection by screening selected features currently available in digital format.  The original films within the collection are too delicate to play and there are very few that have been converted to VHS, DVD, or digital, making these screenings your best bet to see these vintage films from Hollywood’s Golden Era and beyond.

    Michael’s collection includes action/adventure, comedy, drama, family, horror, musical, noir, and sci-fi. The screenings will be held every second Tuesday of the month and will include a brief history of each film shown and a backchat to follow.  The screenings are free and open to the public.

    (Many of the earlier films are Pre-Code or do not come with a rating. Parental discretion may be advised)
