From The Byrd Theatre:

Jimmy Stewart, Grace Kelly, Humphrey Bogart, Elizabeth Taylor, Gene Kelly, Paul Newman, and Bing Crosby will be back on the Big Screen at the Byrd Theatre, part of a new monthly cinema series beginning next week.

The Byrd continues expanding regular programming with Big Screen Classics. Classic movie fans will have two opportunities a month to enjoy movies that are best seen on the Byrd’s big screen. First Wednesdays at 7:15 pm will feature more eclectic titles — Cinema for Cinephiles; and third Sundays will host broader appeal Hollywood Favorites at 2 pm. Tickets are $4.99.

“This new cinema series represents another exciting step in furthering our mission to expand the big screen experience, celebrate the art of cinema and preserve Virginia’s grand motion picture palace,” said Gibson Worsham, Byrd Theatre Foundation President.

Hitchcock leads the series opening, with Vertigo, screening next Wednesday, October 5 at 7:15 pm, and Rear Window shown on Sunday, October 16 at 2 pm. The rest of the lineup includes: The Big Sleep (11/2 @ 7:15 pm), Singin’ in the Rain (11/27 @ 2 pm), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (12/7 @ 7:15 pm), and White Christmas (12/18 @ 2pm).
