11th Annual Nostalgia Night Film Series Announced
Tickets are now available for the 11th annual Nostalgia Night Film Series. The annual event, presented by The Friends of the Devereaux Library in cooperation with the Elks Theatre, consists of 10 original classic films.
This year’s theme, “Behind the Scenes,” features films that have been recognized for their achievements in one or more of the many elements that take place away from the eye of the camera.
The Elks Theatre in downtown Rapid City will show the films at 6:30 p.m. each Sunday beginning January 9. 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 $5 the evening of the film on a space-available basis.
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.
