From page A11 | January 30, 2014 |

Leading up to the annual Academy Awards presentation in Hollywood, the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge invites the public to attend the inaugural Davis Classic Film Festival.
Three classic films featuring legendary directors and renowned actors from Hollywood’s golden years will be presented.

The films will be presented on three successive Sunday evenings — Feb. 2, 9 and 16 — on the big screen in the Lower Hall of the Davis Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and each film will be preceded by a brief introduction by Derrick Bang, a film historian and movie critic. After the screening, The Davis Enterprise movie reviewer will be available to answer questions and discuss the film with viewers who wish to stay.

The film festival is open to the general public. Admission is free, but the Odd Fellows suggest a donation of $5 per person. Candy, popcorn and soft drinks will be available for purchase. All proceeds, after expenses, will be donated to the film programs at Davis High and Da Vinci high schools.

Tickets will not be sold in advance and will be available only at the door on the evening of each performance.

The Odd Fellows Classic Film Festival Committee and Bang have chosen the following films for this first festival:

* Sunday, Feb. 2: “You Can’t Take It With You,” 1938. This classic comedy romp was directed by the legendary Frank Capra, and stars Jean Arthur, Lionel Barrymore and James Stewart. It won Oscars for best picture and best director.

* Sunday, Feb. 9: “All About Eve,” 1950. Starring Bette Davis and George Sanders, this classic drama was directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, and produced by Darryl F. Zanuck. It received a remarkable 14 Academy Award nominations, and won six, including best picture.

* Sunday, Feb. 16: “The Apartment,” 1960. The stellar cast of this comedy-drama is led by Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine and Fred MacMurray, and directed by Billy Wilder. This classic was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won five of them, including best picture.

“The Davis Odd Fellows are delighted to bring these classic movie gems — suitable for all ages — to the community,” said Classic Film Committee Chair Dave Rosenberg. “With the public’s support, we hope the Classic Film Festival in Davis will become an annual event.”
