ALEXANDER’S RAGTIME BAND

Alexander’s Ragtime Band and ingenue Stella Kirby (FAYE) are forced to team up when an audition mix-up lands them a job together. Though Stella and band leader Alexander (POWER) lock horns, they put their differences aside at the urging of Charlie Dwyer (AMECHE), a band member who is romancing Stella. But Charlie’s truce backfires when Alexander and Stella fall in love, triggering a nearly 30-year rivalry for her affection. Also starring ETHEL MERMAN and JACK HALEY, this is a musical treat not to be missed!

This is one Colombo mystery that should not be missed.
Lindsay Crouse turns in a tour-de-force performance as a famous sex therapist and author of her best-selling book “The Courtesan Complex”, who is crushed when she learns her fiancee is being unfaithful to her, and transforms herself into her stunning courtesan alter-ego “Lisa” to murder him. As usual, this completely new environment is an opportunity for the wily Colombo to show off his more unusual talents, including playing the tuba, as well as to pit his wit against an opponent who is well-versed in the art of psychology that he himself uses so well.

Brother Orchid
Thursday, March 1st , 2018
Movie Running Time: 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.

BROTHER ORCHID
“Brother Orchid” is a light-hearted comedy about gangsters, with a moral twist! It serves up gags, gats and genuflecting, all in a cheerfully knockabout style. Oh, brother, what great fun!

Starring Edward G. Robinson, Humphrey Bogart, Ann Sothern, Donald Crisp and Ralph Bellamy.

Edward G. plays racketeer Little John Sarto, who poses as Brother Orchid and lays low at a monastery when a turf war gets hot. Bogey plays a second banana with a gun and ideas about taking over Sarto’s mob. And Ann Sothern is delightfully scatterbrained as Sarto’s devoted doll.
