(NR) 1931, 104 MINS PURCHASE TICKETS
In 1931, a Spanish language version of Bram Stoker’s famous novel was photographed simultaneously with the Bela Lugosi classic (directed by Tod Browning).  Utilizing the same sets, this film has a completely different cast and crew.  Director George Melford didn’t create a shot-for-shot duplicate, fashioning instead a more visually exciting, sexier and longer (by 29 minutes) experience.  Ironically, Melford couldn’t speak Spanish and required a translator!Preceding the movie, we will present a very informative interview (conducted a few years ago) with leading actress Lupita Tovar (who was born in 1910—and is still alive!).This screening will take place in our Jaclyn Simchik Cinema.
Fri. Oct. 31 @ 7pm

Private detective Jeff Bailey (Robert Mitchum) can’t escape his former life when a one-time employer-gangster Whit Sterling (Kirk Douglas) and his femme fatale lover Kathie Moffett (Jane Greer) entangled Bailey in a morass of sex, murder, jealousy and double-dealings.  When he’s currently rediscovered by Sterling, Bailey senses his future may be in jeopardy.  Near perfect filmmaking provides taut direction (by Jacques Tourneur) and top drawer acting from all involved (including Rhonda Fleming, Richard Webb and Steve Brodie).

(PG) 1988, 93 MINS PURCHASE TICKETS
WATCH TRAILER
Red River is celebrating the Day of the Dead with a Quote-A-Long with one our favorite undead – BEETLEJUICE!  Our Quote-A-Longs require audience participation and of course we highly encourage costumes! Don’t forget to get your tickets EARLY!!BEETLEJUICE:
Thanks to the carelessness of a cute little dog, newlyweds Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin are killed in a freak auto accident. Upon arriving in the outer offices of Heaven, the couple finds that, thanks to a century’s worth of bureaucratic red tape, they’re on a long celestial waiting list. Before they can earn their wings, Davis and Baldwin must occupy their old house as ghosts for the next fifty years. Alas, the house is now owned by insufferable yuppies Catherine O’Hara and Jeffrey Jones. Horrified at the prospect of sharing space with these obnoxious interlopers, Davis and Baldwin do their best to scare O’Hara and Jones away, but their house-haunting skills are pathetic at best. In desperation, the ghostly couple engage the services of a veteran scaremeister: a yellow-haired, snaggle-toothed, profane, flatulent “gonzo” spirit named Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton). The problem: Beetlejuice cannot be trusted-especially when he falls in love with O’Hara and Jones’ gloomy, black-clad teenaged daughter Winona Ryder.Tickets:

ANDREW PINARD: DISCOVERING MAGIC
PURCHASE TICKETS
Andrew Pinard: Discovering Magic. Are you the type of person who loves to be surprised; the kind of person that marvels at how remarkable the world is and celebrates the weird and wonderful ways that we experience the world? If so, Discovering Magic is the experience for you! Back for its second year, this “mind-numbing, jaw-dropping, eye-opening” experience takes audiences on a guided tour of the impossible and the absurd. Using only the most ordinary of objects, accomplished actor, conjuror, puppeteer, storyteller, and award-winning performer Andrew Pinard brings the ordinary to life with the most surprising results. The only show of its kind in the New England, audiences have traveled from Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire to experience sleight of hand, con games, psychology, history, science, comedy, cognitive development, political spin, and more through the eyes of a “perceptual engineer” on his quest to explore distortion and guile.Pinard has been a full-time performer and theatre artist for over twenty-five years. He has presented thousands of performances throughout the northeastern United States as well as internationally in Canada, England, Switzerland, Germany, and Italy. Pinard has been recognized by his peers as one of the finest close-up performers throughout the Northeast and took the top honors in the 18th Annual New England Magic Competition. Pinard was selected twice as Editors’ Choice for Best Magical Entertainer in “The Very Best of New Hampshire” issues of New Hampshire Magazine.The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts has referred to his “impressive ability with sleight-of-hand.” After attending the premiere episode of Discovering Magic, Rick Broussard, Editor of New Hampshire Magazine, wrote: “Your show is remarkable, Andrew. Anyone who hasn’t seen it owes it to themselves to go.
