Films in The Field during the Summer
Each year, the Historic Carversville Society in collaboration with the County Theater in Doylestown, present three films projected on the side of Max's Carversville Grocery, weather permitting.
This year's films are:
Monday, June 26, 2017: , The Gold Rush, Grill opens at 7:30p.
Monday, July 31, 2017: , Hulot’s Holiday, Grill opens at 7:30p.
Monday, August 28, 2017: Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang! Grill opens at 7:00p.
The Gold Rush (1925) is the quintessential Chaplin/Little Tramp film, with a balance of slapstick comedy and pantomime, social satire, and emotional and dramatic moments of tenderness. It was Chaplin's own personal favorite film, showcasing his classic Tramp character. -(silent film with music)
Hulot’s Holiday - Les Vacances De M Hulot (1953)
Jacques Tati’s Monsieur Hulot (introduced in this film) was as great a comic creation as Chaplin’s tramp. From the NYT review the film is in “the same visual satire that we used to get in the ‘silent’ days from the pictures of Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton” Basically a silent film but for sound effects and music, the barely essential and minimal dialogue is in French with subtitles.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968) Roger Ebert: “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang contains about the best two-hour children's movie you could hope for, with a marvelous magical auto and lots of adventure and a nutty old grandpa and a mean Baron and some funny dances and a couple of [scary] moments.”
Screenings start at dusk in the
Max Hansen Grocery Store parking lot
Don’t forget - dusk gets earlier as the summer progresses.
