Sunday, April 23, 6:30 p.m.—RANDOLPH—The Chandler Film Society will conclude its season with the second of two western classics, “High Noon” Sunday, April 23, 6:30 p.m.
Gary Cooper stars in perhaps his most iconic role, as Marshal Will Kane, who, on his wedding day, must face down four ruthless killers alone. Grace Kelly stars as his bride, and the supporting cast includes Lloyd Bridges, Katy Jurado, Harry Morgan, and Lee Van Cleef. The film is also famous for its theme song, “Do Not Foresake Me, Oh My Darling.”
Admission is $9 per person, and the doors open at 6 p.m. for light refreshments.
The film society was started in 2011 by Tony Keller, who saw an opportunity in Chandler’s recently renovated Upper Gallery for a film and lecture series, with commentary by area film historian Rick Winston.
For seven seasons, the film society has shown classic films on a variety of themes: comedies, romances, significant literary works adapted for film, an “Art of Suspense” Hitchcock mini-series, and others. Over the past couple of years, attendance has dwindled and committee members have been harder and harder to find.
Unfortunately, when the credits roll on April 23 it will signal the close not just of this season, but of the Chandler Film Society itself.
Chandler thanks the community for its support in helping to keep this program alive.
Chandler Center for the Arts is located at 71-73 Main Street, Randolph. For more information, contact [email protected] or 802-431-0204.
