Eric Grayson, film historian, collector, and preservationist, will continue hosting Vintage Movie Nights at Garfield Park Arts Center on a monthly basis through 2013. The January 19 selection is The Preview Murder Mystery at 7 p.m. The film kicks off a 1930s/40s mystery series that runs through summer.
The 1936 film, starring Reginald Denny, is a mystery-comedy which follows the attempt of a movie studio public relations man to trap a killer by using early television technology. At the helm is director Robert Florey (The Beast with Five Fingers), one of those guys who always turned in good work but never quite became a legend.
All Vintage Movie Night films are family-friendly. Admission is $4; concessions $1. Tickets may be purchased at the door. Free parking. For more information, call 317.327.7135 or visit www.gpacarts.org .
