Nostalgia Night stars still burn brightly
Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart, Marilyn Monroe, Steve McQueen and John Wayne are among the stars that will appear in films during this year’s Nostalgia Night 2001, the annual film series sponsored by the Friends of the Devereaux Library.
This year’s theme is “ Gone But Not Forgotten.” All the movies star actors who are watching the Big Silver Screen in the Sky.
The Elk Theatre in downtown Rapid City will show the films. The movies start at 6 p. m. each Sunday beginning Jan. 14. Ticket books are now on sale for $ 35 each. Buy them at the Devereaux Library on the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology campus, and at the Elks Theatre, Prince & Pauper and Flowers by LeRoy. You can buy individual tickets for each movie, but only if there is room. Those tickets cost $ 4.50 each.
Nostalgia Night 2001 begins with “ North By Northwest,” a movie that many say is Alfred Hitchcock’s best. The film stars Cary Grant and features Mount Rushmore in an important scene.
“ We try to come up with a broad variety of movies,” Janet Taylor, Devereaux Library coordinator of operations, said. “ There are lots of great movies out there with performances by actors and actresses who are no longer with us.”
The Friends of the Devereaux Library uses all the money raised to benefit the campus library. Past projects include the library’s downtime area where students can sit in comfortable furniture and read or study, as wells as the library’s video and compact disc collection.
“ The money allows us to purchase things outside normal funding,” Taylor said. “ Without the money from the series, these things wouldn’t exist at all.”
