Thursday, August 10, 2023 7:00:The Maltese Falcon (Warner Bros., 1941; B&W, 100 minutes; digital presentation [DCP]) Considered by many film historians to be the quintessential “film noir,” the 1941 film version of Dashiell Hammett’s novel about hard-boiled detective Sam Spade. Humphrey Bogart was elevated to full-star-status with his performance of Spade, and others in the cast include Mary Astor, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and Ward Bond. The movie was nominated for three Oscars and, in 1989, was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” “This is one of the best examples of actionful and suspenseful melodramatic story telling in cinematic form.” –Variety. (Screened by arrangement with Warner Bros.) Adults $7, seniors/students/military $6, Capitol Friends $5, children (12 & under) $3.
