The Silver Cinema Project, hosted by Seattle's famous Scarecrow Video, has come to Shoreline with its collection of classic films.
The goal of the Silver Cinema project is to share our collection, one of the world’s largest film archives, with the elder community, via screenings and discussions.
The types of film that we tend to show are golden age Hollywood classics of the 40’s and 50’s. Each screening is introduced by one of our movie experts, and informational fliers about each film are available for viewers to take with them.
The free films will be shown on the first Friday of the month, from 1:30 – 4:00 pm. Popcorn, sodas and beer will be offered for a minimal fee.
It is not necessary to be a Senior Citizen or to belong to the Senior Center.
The first movie will be held on Friday, January 6 and it is Frank Capra's “You Can’t Take it with You”, a wonderful comedy about an eccentric family.
IMDB describes it as "A man from a family of rich snobs becomes engaged to a woman from a good-natured but decidedly eccentric family."
Starring Jean Arthur, James Stewart, and Lionel Barrymore, it was released in 1938. Directed by Frank Capra, it was based on a play by George S. Kaufman.
