This year’s series is full of some of the most-popular of Hollywood’s actors and actresses including Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart, Doris Day, Clark Gable, Cary Grant, James Stewart and Elizabeth Taylor to name drop just a few. There are also some ground-breaking and award-winning directors featured including Alfred Hitchcock, John Huston and Orson Welles.
This year’s list has also garnered 35 Oscars among the 10 movies and both “Citizen Kane” and “The Maltese Falcon” are celebrating their 75th release anniversary. The list of star-studded, award-winning movies and dates are as follows:
“Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”
“The Man Who Knew Too Much”
“The Maltese Falcon”
“An American In Paris”
“North by Northwest”

“Attendance was up 18 percent for last year’s series, and we expect attendance to continue for this year,” said Kathy Summerlin, Marketing Director for the Saenger Theatre. She continued “We are very pleased with the support of the community as well as our sponsors.”
