Gettysburg College’s Majestic Theater: 2017 Summer Classic Film Series
The Majestic Theater marquee in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
Gettysburg College’s historic Majestic Theater will be bringing back their “Summer Classic Movies” series. The Majestic will be showcasing classic and cult feature films Wed. evenings at 7:30 p.m., beginning on June 7 and will end on Aug. 24.
Each film that will be showcased in the series will have a special on-stage introduction by Jeffrey Gabel, area cinema aficionado and founding executive director of the theater. The Majestic will also have a special raffle prize giveaway during each show.
There’s something for everyone in the theater’s “Summer Classic Movies” showcase, ranging from classic flicks to cult favorites and modern features.
A recent change has been made to an upcoming major classic film screening at the Majestic Theater in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
The Feb. 13 revival screening of the 1942 classic, “Casablanca,” with special guest Robert Osborne (of Turner Classic Movies) has been cancelled. According to a recent press release from the theater, Osborne informed the management of the Majestic that he is in the hospital and is undergoing treatment for pneumonia.
Osborne, a noted film critic and longtime TCM host (since the network’s launch in 1994), was originally slated to make a special guest appearance on stage at the Majestic, before the cinema’s screening of “Casablanca” (alongside Jeffrey W. Gabel, founding executive director of the theater). The cinema is honoring ticket refunds.
The writer of “Silver Screen Reflections” and “At the Matinee” wishes Robert Osborne a speedy recovery and is hopeful that he will reschedule his appearance at the Majestic in the near future.
