A Not-For-Profit Multi-Discipline Performing Arts Center In A Landmark Movie Palace

Friday, May 15 at 8PM
“It Happened One Night” Starring Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert, Walter Connolly, Roscoe Karns, Alan Hale, Ward Bond. Directed by Frank Capra. (1934, 105mins., B&W)
Legendary romantic comedy has odd-couple reporter Clark and rich-girl Colbert falling in love on long-distance bus trip. Colbert’s hitchhiking scene is legendary. It was the first film to win in all five of the major Academy Award categories (Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Director, Screenplay).

Admission is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors (65+), children (12 & younger) and students with I.D.


Saturday, May 16 at 6PM
“Dinner at Eight” Starring Marie Dressler, John Barrymore, Wallace Beery, Jean Harlow, Lionel Barrymore, Lee Tracy, Edmund Lowe, Billie Burke, Madge Evans, Jean Hersholt, Karen Morley, Phillips Holmes, May Robinson. Directed by George Cukor. Produced by David O. Selznick. (1933, 113mins., B&W)
A nearly flawless comedy with dramatic undertones starring a constellation of vintage MGM stars at the peak of their talents. The script by Herman Mankiewicz, Frances Marion, and Donald Ogden Stewart is a virtual enclyopedia of witty lines and scenes, right down to an unforgettable and legendary closing gag. The film manages to amuse and delight even the jaded audiences of today.
— — Rare theatrical screening! — —
Don’t miss the chance to see this legendary film on the BIG screen.

Admission is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors (65+), children (12 & younger) and students with I.D.

— — With live accompaniment on the Loew’s Wonder Morton Pipe Organ! — —

In “The General”, Keaton perfectly balanced romance, action and comedy in his most admired film and personal favorite, a Civil War story based on a true incident involving a hijacked Confederate train.

What’s Special About Seeing A Movie At The Loew’s? The Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre is one of America’s grandest surviving Movie Palaces. We show movies the way they were meant to be seen: in a grandly ornate setting — on our BIG 50 ft wide screen! The Loew’s runs reel-to-reel, not platter, projection, which often allows us to screen an archival or studio vault print that is the best available copy of a movie title.

The Loew’s Jersey is managed by Friends of the Loew’s, Inc. as a non-profit, multi-discipline performing arts center.
