Three sailors on a 24-hour pass navigate New York, NY–that wonderful town–and come face-to-face, literally, with three its native inhabitants. Gabey falls hard for a “model” who poses for the Miss Turnstiles advertisements, thinking she’s a high society deb. (She’s really a “cooch” dancer at Coney Island). Chip gets high jacked by a horny lady cab driver, and Ozzie hooks up with a gorgeous anthropologist who thinks he’s the perfect reincarnation of a “prehistoric man.” Singing and dancing abound.

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.

GANGSTERS: THE ART OF CRIME SERIES
 

Roaring Twenties

 

Sundays At 4:00….with commentary/discussion after each film

.January 4:  THE ROARING TWENTIES (NR/1939/104 min.)
At the end of WWI, doughboy Eddie Bartlett (James Cagney) returns from France to discover meager employment opportunities at home and turns to Prohibition-era bootlegging.  Gaining importance serving the starved-for-alcohol public, Eddie’s life becomes intertwined with two Army buddies—one is a lawyer (Jeffrey Lynn), the other a hoodlum (Humphrey Bogart).  Quintessential gangster yarn, expertly directed by Raoul Walsh, is a terrific catalogue of speakeasies, raids, betrayals and shootouts.  Romantic angle provided by the lovely Priscilla Lane.

January 11:  THIS GUN FOR HIRE (NR/1942/80 min.)
Cold blooded hit man Philip Raven (Alan Ladd) kills a blackmailer and is paid with “hot” money.  Seeking revenge on his treacherous employer (Laird Cregar), Raven forms an uneasy alliance with a beautiful entertainer (Veronica Lake) who’s been recruited by authorities to get the goods on the same man.  Everything clicks in this hard boiled thriller: skillful screenplay (adapted from a Graham Greene), vivid b&w photography and charismatic performances (especially from Ladd in a star making role).

January 18:  THE RISE AND FALL OF LEGS DIAMOND (NR/1960/104 min.)
Dapper criminal Jack “Legs” Diamond (Ray Danton) rises from petty thief to influential gangster by double-crossing almost everyone he comes in contact with.  Director Budd Boetticher’s cool, engaging account of an ambitious, amoral hoodlum—played with relentless energy by Danton—may not be historically accurate, but is certainly fast-paced and action-packed. Glamour arrives in the forms of Karen Steele, Elaine Stewart and Dyan Cannon

January 25:  THE YAKUZA (R/1975/112 min.)
Retired detective Harry Kilmer (Robert Mitchum) returns to Japan to deal with the yakuza—an organized crime society that has kidnapped the daughter of an old Army pal (Brian Keith). In order to rescue the girl, Kilmer collects a debt of honor owed him from an ex-yakuza member (Takakura Ken).  Mitchum and Ken are formidable warriors in director Sydney Pollack’s exciting, suspenseful tale which emphasizes the importance of relationships.

 

Sun. @ 4:00
