The Maltese Falcon Onscreen at Bow-Tie Cinemas This Weekend

Lorre fans in the northeast will have an opportunity to catch Peter in theaters when the Bow-Tie Cinemas chain screens The Maltese Falcon (1941) on Saturday and Sunday, September 14 and 15, 2013, as part of their “Movies and Mimosas” classic movies series.

At most locations, the film will begin at 11 am on both Saturday and Sunday. In New Haven, Connecticut, the movie will begin at 11:30 am.

Admission is $5 for all seats, and $4 for Criterion Club members. Mimosas may be purchased for $2.

Bow-Tie Cinemas are located in Connecticut, New Jersey, Maryland, and Virginia. A list of cinemas, including addresses, phone numbers and schedules, is located on the Bow-Tie Cinemas website.

The making of The Maltese Falcon is discussed in The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre, by Stephen D. Youngkin, including interviews with director John Huston and featured player Lee Patrick.

As the first movie Peter Lorre made for Warner Bros., The Maltese Falcon led Peter to a contract with the studio, a lifelong friendship with star Humphrey Bogart – and to Karen Verne, who became the second Mrs. Lorre.

The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre is available on the Nook and Kindle, as well as hard-bound and soft-bound editions.
