Lorre Film at the Lincoln Theatre in Ohio

The historic Lincoln Theatre in Massillon, Ohio, will present Around the World in 80 Days (1957) this Saturday and Sunday, Mar. 14 and 15, 2015. In the all-star extravaganza, Peter Lorre appears in a cameo role as a Japanese steward aboard a ship bound for Yokohama. In the animated closing credits, Peter becomes a sword-wielding samurai warrior.

On Saturday, Around the World in 80 Days will begin at 7 pm.

On Sunday, the movie will begin at 6 pm.

Admission is $5 for all seats. Tickets may be purchased at the Lincoln box office. Tickets may also be purchased on-line through the Lincoln Theatre website. A receipt will be sent by eMail and must be presented at the box office.

The Lincoln Theatre is located at 156 Lincoln Way East, in Massillon, Ohio.

Parking is available on the streets near the Lincoln.

Built in 1915 as a silent movie house, the Lincoln celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. Probably many of Peter Lorre’s movies saw their first runs at the Lincoln, including Around the World in 80 Days. The historic cinema is now lovingly attended to by the local Lions and Rotary clubs, who also work as volunteers.
