DOUBLE FEATURE: Two films for one admission. Tickets purchased for showtimes in  red entitle patrons to stay and see the following film at no additional charge.

BABY FACE

(1933, Alfred E. Green) “She had IT and made IT pay!” The Citizen Kane of Pre-Code, as Barbara Stanwyck turns tricks out of her dad’s dreary Erie, Pa. speakeasy, then sleeps her way to the top. Long considered one of the raciest movies of the early 30s, made even racier with the discovery of an uncensored pre-release version in 2005. 35mm print courtesy Library of Congress. Approx. 75 mins.
2:20*, 5:45*, 9:50  
*Introduced by Bruce Goldstein

RED-HEADED WOMAN

(1932, Jack Conway) In “the sexiest performance in screen history” (Leonard Maltin), small-town stenographer Jean Harlow uses her God-given gifts in a single-minded pursuit of money and men. Banned in Britain, despite King George’s private copy. 35mm. Approx. 79 mins.
