What’s playing September 19th - 26th

This week's highlights:

The Old Town Music Hall in El Segundo is one of Southern California's unique cinema treasures. With it's mighty Wurlitzer organ, it is an especially appropriate place to see silent films such as this weekend's program, THE MERRY WIDOW. This legendary Erich von Stroheim production is known for it's out of control budget and the conflict with lead actress Mae Murray (who decades later served as the inspiration for Morma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard.) So head on don't this weekend and take a trip back to 1925.

Next week, begins the start of the Halloween season and the first of our special Film Radar Halloween Special Issues. Besides keep you to to date on the latest horror film happenings, you'll get the scoop on spooky parks, attractions, theatres and more.

All this and more in the FilmRadar 615th edition.
