Vintage films Film bet

August 06, 1998|By Ann Hornaday

"Halloween H2O" not your cuppa water? Don't feel like rolling with "Snake Eyes"? Pining for vintage Hollywood entertainment of yesteryear?

The Orpheum in Fells Point has your number. This week, the venerable revival house is mounting its annual "Film Collectors Showcase," a quirky collection of rarely seen cinematic jewels.

Tonight at 7:30: "Dust Be My Destiny," a 1939 would-be classic starring John Garfield as a jailed drifter who falls for the daughter of a sadistic prison guard (Alan Hale), followed by "He Ran All the Way" (1951), another Garfield vehicle in which the star plays a man terrorizing a working-class family. Up tomorrow and Saturday: John Ford's "The Informer" (1935), with Victor McLaglen, and "Five Star Final" (1931), starring Edward G. Robinson and Boris Karloff as an unscrupulous editor and reporter. Sunday's fitting finale is "Show of Shows," the 1929 vaudeville-style revue starring Frank Fay, Beatrice Lillie, Myrna Loy, John Barrymore and more stars from the Warner Bros. stable.

The Orpheum Cinema is located at 1724 Thames St. Tickets are $5; $3.50 matinees; $4 students and seniors Monday-Thursday. Call 410-732-4614 for times.
