Nostalgia Night Series Strikes Gold
John Wayne. Elizabeth Taylor. Cary Grant. Jimmy Stewart. Jack Lemmon. Judy Garland. Clint Eastwood. Clark Gable. They have been Hollywood’s biggest stars whose names meant guaranteed success at the box office. They return to the big screen during the Friends of the Devereaux Library’s 2003 Nostalgia Night Film Series, “The Midas Touch.” The 10-film series begins Sunday, Jan. 12.
The Elks Theatre in downtown Rapid City will show the films at 6 p.m. each Sunday starting Jan. 12. Ticket books are now on sale for $30 each at the Devereaux Library on the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology campus, at the Elks Theatre and at Prince & Pauper Village. Individual tickets for each movie will be available at the door for $4.50 the evening of the film, on a space available basis.
The Friends of the Devereaux Library chooses themes that include a variety of films, genres, years and performers.
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 to read or study, as well as the library’s video and compact disc collection. The money allows the library to purchase things outside normal funding. Without the money from the series, these things wouldn’t exist at all.
