2013 Summer Movie Series

Movie_Series_List_6001.jpgThe Orpheum's 2013 Summer Movie Series will commemorate the theatre’s 85th Anniversary with a selection of films from the past eight and half decades. The series will run from June to August at the Orpheum Theatre.

“As a former Malco Theatre, the Orpheum has a strong connection to movies, so we want to celebrate our history through this year’s series,” said Orpheum President and CEO Pat Halloran. “Audiences will enjoy the classics we’ve selected, and for the first time they will also be able to watch film evolve from silent films to talkies to Blockbusters over the course of a summer.”

The Orpheum is also pleased to once again partner with Indie Memphis for this year’s Summer Movie Series. Indie Memphis will present exciting guest speakers, film critics, and local filmmakers preceding the Friday Night Classics. Presenters will share their personal stories and experiences with these films as well as little known facts about film and film history.
