Davis Odd Fellows Classic Film Festival
The general public is cordially invited to attend, free of charge, the continuation of the Odd Fellows Classic Film Festival, coming up in September 2018. The Odd Fellows Classic Film Festival is now in its 5th year, showing a series of classic films twice each year – once in the Spring and once in the Fall. The Fall 2018 series is the 10th series of classics. Once again, we will be using the Davis Odd Fellows’ new big screen projection system in the Upper Hall.
The classic films in September will feature “Classic Detective” films. The public is cordially invited and there is no admissions charge (although donations to defray future costs are always appreciated).
There is a special feature unique to the Odd Fellows Classic Film Festival. Before each film is shown, noted Enterprise film reviewer Derrick Bang will give the audience the back-story of the film, the actors, the production, and the director. After the showing, Derrick Bang will be available to answer audience questions.
On September 9 we are showing “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes” – the original from 1939 which launched it all with Basil Rathbone, Nigel Bruce and Ida Lupino.
On September 16, join us for the iconic 1940 classic “The Maltese Falcon” with Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet.
On September 23, we are screening the 1947 film “Out of the Past” with Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer and Kirk Douglas.
The location is always the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge located at 415 2nd Street, Davis. The Davis Odd Fellows Classic Film Festival began in the Spring of 2014, with two screenings every year – one in the Spring and one in the Fall. The September films will be the 10th chapter of the Festival, and the films will feature “Classic Detective”.
