Saluting Animal Lovers and Lovers of Classic Film at The Landmark Loew’s Jersey
JERSEY CITY, NJ — On February 10 and 11, Friends of the Loew’s begins its Spring season of classic film weekends at the Loew’s Jersey Theater.
In partnership with Greyhound Friends of New Jersey, The Loew’s Jersey is proud to present three films that depict the complex relationships between humans and animals:
Friday, February 10, 8 PM: BEST IN SHOW (2000/90 min) — A wickedly funny and intelligent character comedy that gently sends-up the peculiar world and characters of dog show competitions.
Saturday, February 11, 4 PM: OLD YELLER (1957/84 min) — One of the best loved live-action features ever made by the Walt Disney Company.
Saturday, February 11, 8 PM: THE MISFITS (1961/124 min) — The final film for both Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe, “The Misfits” also starred Montgomery Clift and Eli Wallach. It is a powerful tribute to the majesty and vulnerability of the Old West’s wild horses, symbols not just of the Old West but of independence and fundamental goodness — and of the fragility of the same.
