Screen Easy – if only…
We are sorry to announce that, do to an unforeseen delay in receiving the screening DVD from an overseas distributor, we are unable to screen Carl Theodore Dreyer’s THE BRIDE OF GLOMDAL this Sunday at The Maven as planned.
Despite our best efforts to secure an alternative copy of the film we have ultimately been unable to do so. Apologies to those who were looking forward to seeing it this weekend but these things can happen and unfortunately this time they have.
But as the the old saying goes, ‘Goonies never say die’ and rather than cancel the event altogether we’ve managed to secure another film to screen instead. So, this Sunday we will now be screening Lewis Milestone’s OF MICE AND MEN (1939).
Based on the John Steinbeck novella of the same name, OF MICE AND MEN tells the story of George and Lennie, played by Burgess Meredith (ROCKY, CLASH OF THE TITANS) and Lon Chaney Jr. (THE WOLF MAN, THE DEFIANT ONES) respectively, two migrant workers trying to scrape a living on a ranch in depression era California.
After an accident leaves the wife of the ranch owner’s son dead, George must help Lennie evade the lynch mob that comes looking for him.
The film opened to great critical acclaim and was nominated for four Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Sound Recording, Best Musical Score and Best Original Score.
Tickets already purchased will also remain valid for the Sunday screening despite the change of title, however anyone who wishes to refund their BRIDE OF GLOMDAL ticket can do so by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you haven’t bought tickets yet then you can head over to our online box office or pay on the door.
