LOC Theater - THE BARKER (Warner Bros., 1928):

Thursday, December 4, 2014

Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Library of Congress Packard Campus on Mt. Pony
Address: 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper, VA, 22701
Description: Wanting a better life for his son Chris, side show barker Nifty Miller tries to break up the boys romance with a tough carnival girl and sends him away to law school. George Fitzmaurice directed this Pre-Code romantic drama that stars Milton Sills, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Dorothy Mackaill and Betty Compson. Completed as a silent picture in the summer of 1928, The Barker was put back into production in November so that Vitaphone talking sequences could be added one month before the film's New York premiere. Despite the short deadline, the interchange of soundtrack and picture in the part-talking version was unusually sophisticated for 1928. This rare screening of The Barker is a recent restoration print, courtesy of UCLA Film and Television Archive. The Vitaphone ragtime jazz musical short Red Nichols and His Five Pennies will precede the feature. Black & white, 80 minute feature, 9 minute short **All Packard Campus programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. In case of inclement weather, call the theater information line no more than three hours before showtime to confirm cancellations.

Green, the fast-paced story showcases a number of Warner Bros. contract players including Guy Kibbee, Frank McHugh and Alan Hale.

LOC Theater: THE CASTLE (Miramax, 1997):

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Library of Congress Packard Campus on Mt. Pony
Address: 19053 Mt. Pony Rd., Culpeper, VA, 22701
Organized by: Library of Congress
Description: This delightfully charming Australian comedy was the biggest hit film in 1997 in its native land. After it played at the Sundance Film Festival, Roger Ebert called it one of those comic treasures like The Full Monty that shows its characters in full bloom of glorious eccentricity. Working-class tow-truck driver and father of four Darryl Kerrigan's only distinguishing feature is his beaming reverence for his home and family. Although his kids appear to be underachievers and his home is located on the edge of a major international airport, his family is his pride and joy and his home is his castle. So when government officials demand that Kerrigan sell his house for an expansion of the airport, he fights back through the legal system- all the way up to the Supreme Court. The Kerrigans optimism is inspirational and the familys belief in themselves and creative spin on what some perceive as negative is both hilarious and touching. Directed by Rob Sitch, it stars Michael Caton, Anne Tenney, and Eric Bana in his screen debut. Rated R for language. Color, 85 minutes***All Packard Campus Theater programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
