JERSEY CITY, NJ — If you thought October was a month full of classic movie excitement, then “You ain’t heard nothin' yet!”

The Loew’s Jersey Theatre proudly presents:

THE JAZZ SINGER: A SPECIAL 80TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING (1927-2007)
Starring the legendary Al Jolson

Saturday, November 10th, 7:30 p.m.

See the movie that changed Hollywood forever with the introduction of sound, in the only ANNIVERSARY-YEAR screening scheduled for the Greater New York City metropolitan area, and one of only a select few on the East Coast. Nationally, other notable anniversary screenings include one presented on October 5th by AMPAS in Beverly Hills, California. Friends of the Loew’s obtained a new, pristine-condition 35mm print from Warner Bros. for this special occasion.

This is truly a RARE opportunity to see this historic film on a BIG screen, in one of the first movie palaces built for “talking pictures”.

With commentary by guest speaker Ron Hutchinson of The Vitaphone Project.
