This Saturday September 18th at 8PM on the big screen, "A Hard Days Night" starring the Beatles in their debut feature film. Also on the same bill a rare Pathe Newsreel titled "The Beatles Come To Town" in Techniscope. For the film buffs, there will also be some rare Beatles trailers of various films. Come early and hear the original restored 1928 Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ. Played one half hour before show time, this fine instrument is one of two original installations in a theatre in the entire state of New Jersey.

Coming this Sunday, Sept 19th, 2004 at 2:30PM - "Little Annie Rooney" starring Mary Pickford. (1925) This silent film will have live music accompaniment by Bernie Anderson, Jr. at the Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ. This silent film is co-sponsored by the Garden State Theatre Organ Society and is one of 5 silent films this season. We will be showing rare titles like Eddie Cantor in "Kid Boots", Frank Capra's "Matinee Idol" and well known silents such as Buster Keaton in "The General" and "Nosferatu". Each film will include a silent short subject or sing-along.

All films are presented in their original aspect ratio, projected at their proper frame rate and are 35mm prints except where noted.


The Movie Palace Experience® is the recreation of the movie going experience that America grew up with in the 1920s through the 1950s. With the advent of Multiplexes, theatres shyed away from detail oriented programming. Short subjects and cartoons which were part of the theatre industry until the 1960s were slowly replaced with tv commericals; Beautiful theatres were replaced with a non-descript black box rooms. All the opulence of the hayday of theatres are gone. Or are they? The Union Coutny Arts Center is proud to introduce the Movie Palace Experience®. With each movie, you are slipped back into time. From the restored auditorum to the restored Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ played before each movie, The Union County Arts Center is the only theatre in New Jersey that recreates every detail of a by gone era. Included in each program are Vintage Trailers and Short Subjects, some that audiences haven't seen in 50 to 60 years. Come join us and bring the family for a time you won't forget, The Movie Palace Experience, ONLY at the Union County Arts Center.

Remember, it's not just a movie, it's an experience!

Do appreciate the update, but Film-Yak would be the more suitable board.
