Join us on Saturday, June 22, 2024 at 7:30 p.m. EST for The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939), directed by William Dieterle, starring Charles Laughton, Cedric Hardwicke, Thomas Mitchell, Maureen O’Hara, Edmond O’Brien, George Zucco.

Victor Hugo’s famous story has seen many screen adaptations, but none so poignant as this riveting 1939 adaptation. A triumph of classic filmmaking, the film’s stunning 15th century European sets, gripping narrative, and technical excellence stand as shining hallmarks of the height of Hollywood’s studio system. But it’s Charles Laughton’s definitive portrayal as Quasimodo that you’ll remember, and his chemistry with Maureen O’Hara, as Gypsy girl Esmeralda, which remains as thrilling and achingly moving as ever. Released in a year that brought us many of the greatest films ever made, this one sits proudly on that list!

Our wonderful pre-show begins at 7:15. Don’t miss it!

Please note: We have started using Zoom’s waiting room function due to some disruptive guests at recent screenings. You don’t have to do anything different, but you will be in a waiting room before being admitted, so please plan to log in a few minutes early!

There is no charge for this screening, but we are suggesting a donation of $10 to help cover ongoing costs

    I was unable to watch the March 26 presentation. On Saturday I received emails inviting me to log in but everything I tried failed. “Not Available”.

    You may keep the $20 I donated. My gift.
