The Summer Classic Film Festival returns to the Ritz July 13 -15, 2018 with a full weekend of films from what is considered the greatest year for movies, 1939. Great movies, fun events and free popcorn courtesy of MTR Real Estate make for a not to be missed weekend.
On Friday, July 13, the Summer Classic Film Festival will kick off with a talk about "The Year of the Movie" followed by a screening of the ground-breaking western, Destry Rides Again starring Marlene Dietrich and Jimmy Stewart. On Saturday, July 14 at 3 pm, join us for cookies and punch and The Women, starring Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford and Rosalind Russell in the best catty, gossipy and brilliantly acted fast-paced farce. Filmgoers can then take a break in one of downtown Brunswick's participating restaurants for a special film meal and return to the Ritz by 7 pm and head-down the yellow brick road with Dorothy and her friends in The Wizard of Oz. And on Sunday afternoon at 3 pm, our favorite Civil War romance, Gone With the Wind will screen and patrons will have the option of adding the intermission meal to their ticket – Chef Judah Lynch and Indigo Coastal Shanty will be dishing up at "Taste of the South" during the break.
A pass for all four films plus the Sunday afternoon meal is only $35; a pass for all 4 films without the meal is only $20; individual movie tickets are only $7 each. Sunday afternoon meal and movie only $18/person.
