Groundhog Day (1993)

Feb 12 & 13 @ 7:30

Tickets are $5

Tickets can be purchased at Brown Paper Tickets, Harbor Drug, Crown Drug, City Drug or at the door 30 minutes before the movie.

A weather man is reluctantly sent to cover a story about a weather forecasting “rat” (as he calls it). This is his fourth year on the story, and he makes no effort to hide his frustration. On awaking the ‘following’ day he discovers that it’s Groundhog Day again, and again, and again. First he uses this to his advantage, then comes the realization that he is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in the same place, seeing the same people do the same thing EVERY day.

Starring Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, and Chris Elliott.

Purple Rose of Death

By Shannon Weidman
In 2014 I joined a small group of 7th St Theatre volunteers who host the annual Hot August Frights movie marathon. Hot August Frights is a 12 hour movie marathon at the 7th St Theatre showcasing the best of the worst in old scary/creepy/horror movies. We have featured such classics as Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter, and Killer Clowns From Outer Space.

haf movies
In the spring of 2014 our little misfit group was debating which movies we should show and what might we show in the 10 – 15 minutes between movies while people are stretching their legs and refilling their popcorn buckets. It was then that I got the genius (and overly ambitious) idea that we could make our OWN short horror movies to show between the “real” movies.
The first script I completed was called “The Purple Rose of Death.” It was an homage to silent horror movies like “Nosferatu” as well as to Woody Allen’s 1985 movie, “The Purple Rose of Cairo” in which a movie character steps out of the movie screen and into the real world. In my movie, a real life person would be lured INTO a horror movie. It sounded so easy.
I recruited friends and fellow 7th Street volunteers as my actors and crew and went to work. Our opening shot was going to be the exterior of a haunted house. 30 seconds into filming our fancy camera had a dead battery and our sunlight was gone. We turned on the high beams of my car for lighting and we filmed the rest of the movie using our cell phones.

After way too many hours of editing we finally put together a little movie that might not bring home any awards, but which we had a fun time making and we learned so much about the effort that goes into making movies. The movie (along with a few others we made) was shown between the “real” films at the 2014 Hot August Frights movie marathon and has not been seen publicly since. So.. for the first time since that initial screening, I present to you.. The Purple Rose of Death!

Strangers on a Train (1951)

Tickets are $5

Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets, Harbor Drug, Crown Drug, City Drug and at the door 30 minutes before the show.

Bruno Anthony thinks he has the perfect plot to rid himself of his hated father and when he meets tennis player Guy Haines on a train, he thinks he’s found the partner he needs to pull it off. His plan is relatively simple. Two strangers each agree to kill someone the other person wants disposed of. For example, Guy could kill his father and he could get rid of Guy’s wife Miriam, freeing him to marry Anne Morton, the beautiful daughter of a U.S. Senator. Guy dismisses it all out of hand but but Bruno goes ahead with his half of the ‘bargain’ and disposes of Miriam. When Guy balks, Bruno makes it quite clear that he will plant evidence to implicate Guy in her murder if he doesn’t get rid of his father. Guy had also made some unfortunate statements about Miriam after she had refused him a divorce. It all leads the police to believe Guy is responsible for the murder, forcing him to deal with Bruno’s mad ravings.

Staring Farley Granger, Robert Walker, and Ruth Roman.

Fortune and Glory

First, allow myself to introduce.. myself. My name is Shannon Weidman and I am a volunteer/poster designer/board member/movie lover at the 7th Street Theatre. My involvement with the 7th Street Theatre began with my childhood hero, Indiana Jones.

I have always enjoyed the old time atmosphere of the theatre but my appreciation for it really picked up in September, 2008 when I found out that the 7th Street Theatre was showing “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”. I was super excited to see it on the big screen for the first time in many years. You see, when I was a little boy I used to pretend that I was Indiana Jones and I was even the proud owner of an officially licensed Indiana Jones hat. (I’m pretty sure I wore out the garage door by constantly hitting the button, running through the garage, and rolling underneath the door as it closed.) Since I had successfully imparted my love for the Indiana Jones series on my son, I brought him along to the theatre and (of course) had him dress up in his Indy costume. We had a wonderful time and I was hooked on the theatre. He even brought home a souvenir T-Shirt.

We had such a good time that the next time the theatre showed an Indiana Jones movie (Raiders of the Lost Ark in 2012) we went again. This time I brought my daughter too and we all dressed up (big Indy, little Indy, and Marion).
2012
Fast forward to March, 2015 and the theatre completed the original Indiana Jones trilogy by showing “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”. This time around I posed as Indy, my son reprised his role as “little Indy” and my friend Rick dressed as the evil Mola Ram. We posed for pictures with movie patrons and had a great time.
2015-2
Those first experiences were so fun that I wanted to get more involved with the theatre so I volunteered to help make a movie poster for one of the theatre’s movies (Poltergiest – if you ever see the poster try to see the 3d image in the TV screen!). Then I made a few more movie posters.. then I joined the volunteer group selling tickets and concessions, then I joined the movie selection committee, the Hot August Frights committee, and finally the Board of Directors. It all started when my son and I went to watch our favorite movie at a beautiful old theatre. So come on out, bring the kids, and make some memories.
