Nostalgia Night Features “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”
The 10th annual Nostalgia Night film series continues Sunday, Feb. 1, at the Elks Theatre with “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”
This 1958 adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ play is a powerful, highly-charged, moving story of a neurotic, dysfunctional Southern family with its rivalries, tensions, and secrets. The film, one of the top ten box-office hits of its year, was honored with six Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Paul Newman with his first Oscar nomination), Best Actress (Elizabeth Taylor with her second of four consecutive nominations), Best Director (Richard Brooks), Best Adapted Screenplay (Richard Brooks and James Poe), and Best Cinematography (William H. Daniels).
Nostalgia Night is an annual series of 10 weekly films presented by The Friends of the Devereaux Library at South Dakota Tech, in cooperation with the Elks Theatre. Future films are “The Adventures of Robin Hood,” “Suspicion,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “Charade,” “Dark Victory” and “The Pink Panther.”
All films begin at 6 p.m. Tickets for individual films will be available at the door on a space available basis the evening of the show for $4.50 each.
