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