(3 hours, 44 min) The chariot race is perhaps one of the most famous action sequences of all time. See it again in Ben Hur, the historical epic that tells the story of a Jewish prince who is betrayed and sent into slavery by a Roman friend and must regain his freedom to exact revenge.

Join us one Saturday each month as we screen the most beloved classic films of all time. Virginia Theatre organist David Schroeder performs on the Virginia’s historic Wurlitzer Pipe Organ at most News- Gazette screenings.  NEW this year: before each 7pm News-Gazette film, take a trip back in time with a short sing-a-long with David at the Wurlitzer and our historic glass slides as your guide! The Virginia Theatre houses one of the largest collections in the country of these unique glass slides, each set printed with the lyrics to a classic tune from days gone by. Warm up your pipes and bring the whole family!
