Friday, February 3, will mark the premiere of the Sippican Historical Society’s newest offering: Classic Film Fridays. One Friday each month, the Society will present a classic film and offer a discussion on its historical context or significance.
February’s feature film will be The African Queen, starring Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn as unlikely partners joined in an effort to take out a warship in German East Africa during the First World War. The film discussion will be hosted by former Zeiterion Theater owner and avid film buff, Tom Shire.
Future films will include Young Mr. Lincoln on March 2, Sunrise at Campobello on April 13 and Maytime on May 4. Film presentations will include commentary from movie aficionado, David Pierce.
Classic Film Fridays will be held at the Marion Music Hall on Front Street, and will be offered free of charge to the public. Each film will begin at 7:00 pm, and refreshments will be available. For more information, contact the SHS at 508-748-1116.
