MEMPHIS, TN — A series of classic and other films dubbed “new classics” will be shown this summer at the 1928 Rapp & Rapp Memphis Orpheum. Selections include “Mary Poppins,” “The Godfather,” “Caddy Shack,” “The Sound of Music,” “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” “E.T.,” and others.
“All of our films are classic films, some are certainly from the Golden Age of film, but even some like ‘E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial’ or ‘Top Gun’ are on their way to being classic films,” said Kanette Rodgers, vice president of marketing and public relations for The Orpheum.
For more than 12 years, the theater has offered its film series, mostly of crowd-pleasing family favorites, though some have more of an edge to them. Rodgers said audiences who return year after year for the films typically determine the next year’s lineup.

FRESH MEADOWS, QUEENS, NY — The Fresh Meadows 7 is running a free showing Sunday of the 1963 film “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”. Apparently they also ran this film for free in November. These showings have been advertised in free local weeklies in Queens but are not shown on Fandango or Moviefone. They are also not listed in the papers though I believe the New York Post had a advertisment for it last year. I went to a film at the theater today and could not believe the film was up on the marquee with a May 23 date. I asked the manager about this and all he could tell me was that a Richard Bernstein rented the theater both times and it’s free for anyone to see.
“It’s one of my favorite comedy movies of all time, and I wanted other people to be able to see it and laugh the way I’ve laughed,” Bernstein said.
The movie that stars such big names as Spencer Tracy, Mickey Rooney, and Buddy Hackett will play at the AMC Loews Fresh Meadows 7 Sunday, May 23, at 1:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Bernstein, who was 11 when he first saw the movie about a wild pursuit of $350,000, brought the film to the same theater last year but was disappointed when only about 25 people came to see a movie he has seen a “countless” number of times.
This year Bernstein is once again spending about $1,000 to rent the space and play the movie for a wide audience and has ramped up efforts to advertise the event in the hopes the theater will be packed. The theater can hold 145 people.
