SINCE the Corn Exchange in Wallingford converted to a digital projector over two years ago, its traditional (and now outmoded) 35mm projector is now no longer needed.

As a final tribute to the good old days, some of the cinema’s former projectionists felt they would like to run some “reel films” for one last time.

So on Saturday, July 25, the Corn Exchange will be running three classic films, cartoons, old trailers, a newsreel and, if a print can be found, a classic B-movie â?? absolutely free of charge. Starting at 10.30am parents and children can enjoy some classic cartoons followed by

The Wizard of Oz
from 1939, starring the young Judy Garland.

At 2.30pm, the 1956 musical



High Society
starring Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra will light up the screen.

For the evening showing at 7.30pm, preceded by a typical ‘B’ movie, Elvis Presley will wiggle those hips in his third film, the 1957 musical

Jailhouse Rock
.

All three screenings are free, but booking is advisable at www.cornexchange.org.uk
