- "They don't make movies like they used to."- "I'd really like to see some of the "Golden Oldies" back again."
This coming weekend lots of Salt Lakers will have the opportunity to see some of the "Golden Oldies" as the Deseret News sponsors the Salt Lake Film Classic as part of the grand opening of the new Cineplex Odeon Holladay Center Cinemas.
Located across the street from the Cottonwood Mall, the Cinema Center is 1945 E. 4800 South.
Admission to the Deseret News Film Classic is free with an advertising coupon from Sunday's paper or from Wednesday or Thursday's Deseret News. Mechanical reproductions will not be honored for free admission.
Heading the list of classical films will be "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," opening the festival Friday with the first showing at 1:40 p.m. and the final at 9:35 p.m.
Most everyone's favorite classic is "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." This favorite will be shown free Friday starting at 12:40 p.m.
Other top flight movies include Humphrey Bogart in "Casablanca" on Sunday and Charlie Chaplin in "Modern Times," with the first Monday showing at 1:40 p.m. and the final showing of the day at 9 p.m.
Tuesday will be the screening of what most people regard as one of the greatest musical hits of all time - "Singing' in the Rain," starring Gene Kelly.
A three-hour movie and also another great film classic, "Ben Hur," will play Wednesday (June 8). Because of the film's length, there will only be showings at noon, 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Final selection of the week will be the romantic comedy "An Affair to Remember."
- Deseret News subscribers are reminded that the free admission coupon will be part of the movie ad announcing the grand opening of the Cineplex Odeon.
