Classic Hollywood Series

Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, it’s time to walk into ours.

The Ritz is turning 80 in July and we are planning many celebrations throughout the year. As part of the festivities we are embarking on a journey back to the golden age of Hollywood and the golden age of The Ritz Cinema.

In this series of screenings, we have carefully curated a program of some of our most beloved films which this year will be celebrating milestones and brand new digital restorations which are an absolute must to experience on the big screen. These classics will be showing every few weeks on a Sunday afternoon and Wednesday morning, and will transport you back to the days of Hollywood Glitz and Glamour of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.

This is our Classic Hollywood series.

Now, play it, Sam.

  • Joseph L. Mankiewicz
  • Synopsis
  • Eve (Anne Baxter) is waiting backstage to meet her "idol" aging Broadway Star, Margo Channing (Bette Davis). It all seems innocent enough as Eve explains that she has seen Margo in EVERY performance of the current play she is in. Only Playright critic DeWitt (George Sanders) sees through Eve's evil plan, which is to take her parts and fiancé, Bill Simpson (Gary Merrill) When the fiancé shows no interest, she tries for playwright Hugh Marlowe (Lloyd Richards) but DeWitt stops her. After she accepts her award, she decides to skip the after-party and goes to her room, where we find a young woman named Phoebe, who snuck into her room and fell asleep. This is where the "Circle of Life" now comes to fruition as Eve is going to get played the way she did Margo.

They show up at the train station as Josephine and Daphne, the replacement saxophone and bass players. They certainly enjoy being around the girls, especially Sugar Kane Kowalczyk who sings and plays the ukulele. Joe in particular sets out to woo her while Jerry/Daphne is wooed by a millionaire, Osgood Fielding III.
