The Maltese Falcon in Columbus, IN, May 31

Peter Lorre fans in Columbus, Indiana, can turn back time to October 1941 this Saturday, May 31, 2014, when the YES Cinema and Conference Center shows The Maltese Falcon (1941) as part of a typical night at the movies in the 1940s.

The Maltese Falcon will begin at 7:01 pm. In addition to the movie, the program will include a newsreel, short subject, and a cartoon.

Movie theater candy will be on sale – Turkish Taffy, Mallo Cups, Bun Candy Bars, and Necco Wafers, among others.

And to round out the experience, the cinema will include “Dish Night”. Lucky patrons will have a chance to win a dish or piece of chinaware, just as they would have in the early 1940s.

Admission for the evening program is $5 for all seats. More information about ticket prices may be found on the YES Cinema website.

The YES Cinema and Conference Center is located at 328 Jackson Street in Columbus, Indiana, at the west end of the Commons Centre. Directions to the theater are available on the YES Cinema website.
