A CHRISTMAS CAROL: Adapted from Charles Dickens' classic novella, the story tells of a misanthropic pinchpenny named Ebenezer Scrooge and his ideological, ethical, and emotional transformation after the supernatural visits of Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come.
THE THIRD MAN: Holly Martins is a "scribbler" of hack Westerns who arrives in Vienna to land a job and join his old pal Harry Lime. Instead he finds himself drawn into a network of deadly black-market racketeers. From the film by Sir Carol Reed.
THE GREAT HOUDINI: Chronicles the spectacular but short career of Harry Houdini from his early fame as an escape artist, to his contentious friendship with Arthur Conan Doyle and his recalcitrant reputation as a séance debunker, to his tragic death. Features a live performance by an actual escape artist during our "fake" intermission.
TWENTY THOUSAND LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA: Based on the classic science fiction novel by French writer Jules Verne, it tells the astonishing story of Nemo’s Nautilus as seen from the perspective of Professor Pierre Aronnax.
SHERLOCK HOLMES & THE FINAL PROBLEM: Holmes and Watson embark on a roundabout Continental "holiday" designed to thwart the relentless pursuit of the Napoleon of crime himself, Professor Moriarty. The story culminates with a fateful square off at "a dreadful cauldron of swirling water and seething foam" known as Reichenbach Falls.
Plus: Orson Welles' Dracula, Jane Eyre, Casablanca, Sunset Boulevard, and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. And a range of pop culture parodies.
