Lorre Double-Feature at Castro Theatre

At the Castro Theatre, in San Francisco, California, it’s a “Double Bogie and Huston” night on Sunday, April 30, 2017 – but it’s also a “Double Lorre” night, with showings of The Maltese Falcon (1941) and the restored Beat the Devil (1954).

Beat the Devil begins at 5:05 pm and 8:55 pm.

The Maltese Falcon will be shown at 7 pm.

The newly-restored version of Beat the Devil was shown earlier this year at the Film Forum in New York City, Feb. 17 to 23, 2017, and discussed here on the Peter Lorre News blog. The restoration has gone back to the original 35mm camera negative, as well as other sources, to re-create the longer uncensored – and never seen – version to be shown at the Castro.

Tickets are $12 for adults, $9 for seniors age 62 and older, and $9 for children age 12 and younger. Tickets may be purchased at the Castro box office.

The Castro Theatre is located at 429 Castro Street, in San Francisco, California.

Parking is available in two small lots and on the street near the cinema. The Castro is also well-served by both bus and street car. Public transportation options, as well as directions to the Castro, can be found on the cinema’s website.

For more information, please call the Castro at 415-621-6120.
