The 7 p.m. screening will include a brief introduction, short intermission, and optional film discussion afterwards led by The Classic Cinema Club.

“We are thrilled to be a part of this exciting weekly event which will be a treasure trove for film fans everywhere,” said Jimmy Overton of The Classic Cinema Club.

The first screening will be “The Quiet Man.” Starring John Wayne, this 1952 film is set in the countryside of Ireland and is perfect for showing near Saint Patrick’s Day. The Oscar winning film is an engaging tale of an Irishman, raised in America, going back home to escape his past. Director John Ford returns to his roots, going on location to tell the story of a man who finds love, adventure and hope in this charming romantic comedy.

“Make plans to join us each Monday night to enjoy these classic films up on the big screen where they belong in the beautifully restored Wayne Theatre,” Overton said.
