Classics & Cocktails Film Series: Western Double Feature

  • Rhode Island Spirits, llc 59 Blackstone Avenue Pawtucket United States (map)

Join us for classic films and cocktails! Every other week we offer up a double feature of genre films, and your ticket includes popcorn and your first drink. Tickets $15, available through Eventbrite.

Sept. 28
Angel and the Badman/The Santa Fe Trail

These two westerns define the genre; John Wayne is tamed by the love of a good woman in Angel & the Badman, and Errol Flynn & Ronald Reagan find time to woo Olivia DeHavilland while fighting on the wrong side in Kansas' violent John Brown era in The Santa Fe Trail.

Oct. 12
Royal Wedding/Second Chorus

Fred Astaire partners with Jane Powell as a dancing double act taking London by storm in Royal Wedding, and Paulette Goddard as the hi-jinks leader of a dance band in Second Chorus (also features Artie Shaw).

Oct. 26
Night of the Living Dead/Plan 9 from Outer Space

Pre-Halloween cult film double feature: Director George Romero invented the zombie movie with Night of the Living Dead, and Ed Wood's Plan 9 From Outer Space, guest starring Bela Lugosi (who had already died before the film was made!), has been called "the worst movie ever made."

Nov. 9
The General/The Gold Rush

A pair of silent classics: Starring the great stone face, Buster Keaton's The General is often rated one of the best American movies ever made, and Charlie Chaplin's The Gold Rush helped to re-define American cinema.

Nov. 23
The Man With the Golden Arm/Reefer Madness

Two great works of anti-drug propaganda: Frank Sinatra struggles and ultimately succombs to heroin in The Man With the Golden Arm, and a strenuous attempt to terrify Americans about what will happen if their teens smoke weed makes Reefer Madness a comedic cult classic.

Dec. 7
Beat the Devil/Charade

Comedy & adventure combine in Beat the Devil (starring Humphry Bogart and Gina Lollabrigida), often called a parody of the Maltese Falcon, and Charade (starring Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn), a whodunnit with a race to the finish.

Dec. 21
It’s A Wonderful Life/Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

It wouldn't be Christmas without Frank Capra's classic story of George Bailey and his guardian angel in It's A Wonderful Life, but we hope you'll join us in taking things a little less seriously with Santa Claus Conquers The Martians, a stupefying sci-fi trip that features the first appearance of Mrs. Claus on film!
