The Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood has announced a two-night tribute to Debbie Reynolds, to take place on Thursday, April 4th, and Tuesday, April 9th.
The two evenings will bookend the first weekend of the 15th Annual Noir City Festival, taking place at the theater from April 5th through the 7th.
The first evening of the Reynolds tribute, on April 4th, will feature a double bill of THE TENDER TRAP (1955) and MARY, MARY (1963). Both films will be screened in 35mm.
As I wrote last fall, THE TENDER TRAP is a long-time favorite of mine. It costars Frank Sinatra, Celeste Holm, and David Wayne.
Debbie Reynolds will appear at the theater in person on April 9th, signing her new book UNSINKABLE: A MEMOIR. She will also participate in a discussion.
The movies shown on the 9th are SINGIN' IN THE RAIN (1952) and THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN (1964). SINGIN' IN THE RAIN will be a digital print, and MOLLY BROWN will be shown in 35mm.
It's not likely I'll be able to travel up to Hollywood to attend these screenings myself, as I already have tickets for several Noir City films in early April, but this is a really wonderful opportunity for classic film fans to see some great movies and especially to see Debbie Reynolds in person!
