Film critic, Chuck Koplinski will not be available to speak on this date.  He will, however,  resume on August 6th for Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory (1971)


(91 min) A definitive screwball comedy of the thirties, this stylish film is a witty battlefield of marital misadventures, mismatches and snappy dialogue, with slapstick, improvization and hilarious romantic antagonism between its two stars, Cary Grant and Irene Dunne. They appear as a disfunctional couple who file for divorce but then attempt to sabotage and ruin each other’s new romances and are ultimately reconciled ust before the divorce becomes final.



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, and film critic Chuck Koplinski leads discussions after all of our evening 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!
