Odd couples: Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in Gone With the Wind (bottom), screening Saturday at Rome’s Capitol Theatre, and Joan Davis and Eddie Cantor in Show Business, Monday at the Spaghetti Warehouse.
The Civil War classic will be
unspooled on the theater’s 20-foot-high screen, with all seats
$1.10—the same price patrons shelled out in February 1940 when the MGM
epic premiered in Rome. Organ music will precede both shows, with Helen
Maksymicz performing at 1 p.m. and John Paul handling the pipes at 6:30
p.m. For information, call 337-6453.
Speaking of old movies, the Syracuse
Cinephile Society returns to the Spaghetti Warehouse, 689 N. Clinton
St., to kick off its spring season of Monday night shows. Show Business
(1944), starring Eddie Cantor, Joan Davis and George Murphy in a
vaudeville yarn, will play April 7 at 7:30 p.m. Cinephile
representative Gerry Orlando reports that a wider screen has been
installed at the Franklin Square venue, good news for film fans who
enjoy meatballs with their movies. Film admission is $3; call 475-1807
