Paramount Movie Classics
THE MALTESE FALCON


[Running time: 100 minutes]
Box Office opens @ 6:00pm | Doors open @ 7:00 | Curtain rises @ 8:00pm
All Tickets: $5.00 (ticket prices include facility fee)
THE MALTESE FALCON (1941) - A dastardly crew of crooks is in pursuit of a gold and jewel-encrusted statue of a falcon worth a king's ransom. But when private eye Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) gets involved, the stakes shift dramatically. This first motion picture directed by John Huston also featured Bogart's first starring role in a Warner Brothers film and is indisputedly one of the finest film-noir classics of all time. The movie script follows the original Dashell Hammett novel almost word-for-word and the cast delivers their lines with such panache, it seems impossible to imagine any other actors in these roles. Nobody can toss off Sam Spade's sneering tough-guy wisecracks like Bogart. What actress other than Mary Astor as the conniving Brigid O'Shaughnessy could lie so seductively? And, of course, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and Elisha Cook, Jr. play their villainous roles to absolute sinister perfection. [more...]

Martin and Chris Kratt, stars of the Emmy-nominated Wild Kratts, step out live onstage to engage the audience in a classic Wild Kratts story. Starting off in their headquarters, the "Tortuga," the Kratts receive a message about an animal in trouble. Always ready to help animals in need, they pull on their "Creature Power" vests and gloves and are off. The adventure doesn't work as planned, which results in hilarious pratfalls and slapstick fun. But they press on, encountering some amazing "Wow Facts" about animals, presented via large-screen multimedia video footage, as they rescue their animal friend and return it to its natural home.
