EAST GREENVILLE, PA — The historic Grand Theater, located in East Greenville, Pennsylvania (located between Philadelphia and Allentown just off Route 476) is presenting Cecil B. Demille’s 1956 epic and three-time Oscar winner, The Ten Commandments.

The Grand has secured through Paramount Pictures a 35mm print of this classic starring Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Yvonne De Carlo, and Edward G. Robinson.

While most often shown on television during this time of year, the Grand is presenting this classic on the big screen! One show only, Palm Sunday, March 16th at 2PM. Running time is 4 hours, including a 20 minute intermission.

All seats for this special event are $5.

Admission includes a free organ concert provided by the Grand’s organist, Mr. Carl Black, starting 20 minutes prior to the show. Mr. Black will be performing on our Conn Electronic organ and the Grand’s owner will provide an update on the progress of the 2/6 1923 Marr and Colton Theater Organ.

Come experience a classic film in a historic theater!

I’d love to see this film on screen just once!

It IS worth seeing this vast epic on the Big Screen, which is how I first saw it during its re-release in 1972, at the Belmont Theatre in Long Beach, CA. Then I saw it several times over the years on TV, and didn’t see it again theatrically until around 1990, when I saw it at the Towne in San Jose, and the Sash Mill Cinema in Santa Cruz.

My father, Ed Parks, was the animator of the Pillar of Fire for the movie. He didn’t get to meet any of the cast, but he did work with Mr. DeMille.

The print which I saw at the Loews Jersey was from a private collector.
Great that the Grand is presenting this epic. It does deserve to be seen on a larger than life movie screen rather than simply on a TV set.
