Program for the Twenty-Eighth Annual Vintage Film Festival

Unfortunately, the program listed below will now be deferred to 2021

Tickets will be available in the summer - see the Ticket page. The best value by far is the Festival pass which gives you: 

  • The 12 program movies - a $120 value
  • The Opening Night Reception with light refreshments
  • The very popular "Brown bag Lunch" - the topic and speaker this year is TBD.

Note that registration at the door is required. You can also buy tickets for the Opening Night only (includes 3 films and Reception). Singles will be available at the door (and online) at $10.00 for all movies.

Below is a list of the films to be shown.  Click the Title of any film to go to a page with additional information.  For each film, you will go to a page of information including photos, a review and if available, a trailer.
