Nostalgia Night Salutes Radio City Music Hall
For more than half a century, Radio City Music Hall was the nation’s premier theatre, the first choice of movie studios to showcase their greatest works. Films that opened there were virtually guaranteed to become huge successes.
Gala opening night shows brought throngs of movie fans to the hall hoping for a glimpse of the Hollywood’s most glamorous stars. This year, the Friends of the Devereaux Library and the Elks Theatre bring back to the screen a sampling of those magnificent films during the Friends of the Devereaux Library’s 2003 Nostalgia Night Film Series, “A Salute to Radio City Music Hall.” The 10-film series begins Sunday, Jan. 11, at the Elks Theatre.
The Elks Theatre in downtown Rapid City will show the films at 6 p.m. each Sunday starting Jan. 11. Ticket books are now on sale for $30 each at the Devereaux Library on the South Dakota Tech 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. Nostalgia Night 2004 will be the 10th annual film series.
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.
