For fans of classic movies and local trivia, The Nickelodeon Theatre has plenty of both this month.
“A Lotta Talent and A Little Luck: A Celebration of Stanley Donen” is a month-long movie festival celebrating the 90th birthday of the last living notable director from Hollywood’s golden age.
Donen directed such classic films as “Singin’ in the Rain,” “On the Town,” and “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.” He received an honorary Academy Award in 1998.
The theater is showing a series of classic Donen films on Mondays and Tuesdays through the end of August. Pre-film discussions are led by local film experts.
This week, “Charade” is the featured film, starring Audrey Hepburn as the wife of a murdered man and Cary Grant as the gentleman who offers to help her. It’s a comedy-thriller, with a Hitchcock flair.
Other films in the series include:
“The Little Prince” will be shown at 10 a.m. on Aug. 9.
All other movies will be shown at 5:30 p.m. Mondays and 3 p.m. Tuesdays.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at nickelodeon.org.
