Charles Pignone, author of the new book Sinatra 100, joins us for a book signing before screenings of the Honorary Oscar-winning 1945 Frank Sinatra short "The House I Live In" and the sublime musical ON THE TOWN, from the same creative team behind SINGIN' IN THE RAIN.
The insight and sensitivity that were hallmarks of Frank Sinatra's lyric reading proved equally effective bringing characters to life onscreen, whether it was the soldier battling Communist brainwashing in Cold War thriller THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, or the heroin-addicted ex-con Frankie Machine in THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM (for which he earned a Best Actor Oscar nomination).
Enjoy a day in historic Hollywood at the home of Hollywood's first movie premiere! Take a docent-led tour of the legendary 1922 Egyptian Theatre followed by a screening of the history film FOREVER HOLLYWOOD (exclusively shown at the Egyptian Theatre and featuring interviews with over 20 actors and filmmakers). See what it would have been like to be in a Grauman stage show with a visit to the dressing rooms and singers' boxes. Check out our state-of-the-art projection booth and more at this adaptively re-used historic landmark!
The original OCEAN’S ELEVEN, in which Sinatra co-stars with such Rat Pack pals as Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr., remains one of the most entertaining heist films of the 1960s. Join us for a screening and birthday cake on what would have been ol' blue eyes' 100th birthday!
Frank Loesser’s Broadway hit becomes one of the 1950s’ most enjoyable musicals in the hands of director Joseph L. Mankiewicz, and Sinatra shares the screen with Marlon Brando in his only song-and-dance role.
