International Friendship Club Announces Hollywood Classics Film Series

Sue MacGregor - International Friendship Club
January 15, 2015

The International Friendship Club of Puerto Vallarta continues its Monday Night Movies this season with an exciting “Hollywood Classics” Movie Series. All of these movies, stretching back to 1940, won “Best Picture” Oscars the year they were released.

The movies are only 40 pesos (with proceeds going to charity) and that includes free popcorn!

The cash bar will open at 6:30 with the movie beginning at 7:00 pm at the IFC Clubhouse.

All About Eve will be screened on January 19. Best picture of 1950 and one of the most acclaimed films in academy history with 14 nominations, this classic features the legendary Bette Davis playing stage legend Margo Channing. As Margo's star is dimming, Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter), young, ambitious ingénue, becomes her all-too willing protégé and slowly this dreamy-eyed kid spins a cunning web that eventually destroys Margo. George Sanders, Celeste Holm, Hugh Marlowe, Barbara Bates, Gary Merrill, and Thelma Ritter also appear, and the film provided one of Marilyn Monroe's earliest important roles.

For the fans of Marlon Brando we feature On the Waterfront on January 26th. Remember when Marlon was such a hunk as ex-fighter Terry Malloy of “I cudda been a contender” fame? This unforgettable drama about Terry's redemption from the mob and the gang-ridden new York docks is among the most acclaimed of all time.

On February 2nd, you won’t want to miss the 1956 Oscar winner Around the World in 80 Days. Mexico’s beloved Cantinflas stars opposite David Niven in a role for which Cantinflas won the Golden Globe Award for best actor in a comedy. Robert Newton and Shirley MacLaine round out the great cast in this loveable adventure about trying to traverse the globe in record speed in a balloon and getting into deep trouble wherever it lands.

Look for a future article with details of later films in the series, and see the full listing below.

There are no advance ticket sales, doors open at 6:30 so come then and get your seat and your popcorn! We’ll see you at the Classics Monday nights!
