THE MARIE DRESSLER FOUNDATION PRESENTS
VINTAGE FILM FESTIVAL

OCTOBER 12-14

Twenty six years ago (1992), a group of film enthusiasts involved in the restoration of the Marie Dressler house had a wild idea. Why not hold a festival showing the films in which Marie Dressler had starred? This seemingly fantastic idea grew into the present form in which we show a variety of films generally made before about 50-60 years ago.  We will often, although not always, include a film starring Marie Dressler.

For more on Marie Dressler and the Marie Dressler Foundation, please go to the Marie Dressler Foundation Web site here.

The weekend is best enjoyed as an event and not just a collection of great movies. We start with a movie for pass holders only, then there's our Gala reception followed by two films.  Then on Saturday we show a collection of six movies that range from very old, silent films starring Mary Pickford, Erich von Stroheim or Douglas Fairbanks, to talkies and musicals. On Sunday we show four movies. 

Call 905 372-2210 for more inormation or reserve your tickets. The films will be shown at the Capitol Theatre, Port Hope.
