FILM | Hollywood’s Golden Age
When considering film quality and attendance rates, 1939 is regarded as the greatest year in the history of Hollywood. During that year Hollywood’s film industry produced an outstandingly large number of exceptional motion pictures, many of which became honored as all-time classic films. Among the movie premiers that year were iconic films such as The Wizard of Oz, Gone with the Wind and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, all of which were nominated for Academy Awards. The films also came from a wide variety of film genres such historical fiction, contemporary affairs, love stories, fantasies and westerns. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of that golden age of film, The Legacy Theatre is hosting the 1939 Film Festival this weekend. Admission for a single film is $10.
