White Christmas Screens This Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

12 December 2016 7:23 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“I wanna wash my hands, my face, my hair with snow!”

The spirit of Christmas is alive and well at The Hi-Pointe Theater here in St. Louis. It”S A Wonderful Life played last weekend to a nearly-sold out crowd – and that’s a big theater!

This Saturday, December 17th at 10:30am, head over to the Hi-Pointe for a White Christmas

White Christmas was made in 1954 (exactly 20 years before Black Christmas!) and was directed by Michael Curtiz. Bing Crosby teamed up with madcap funny man Danny Kaye and partnering with those two show biz pros as sisters were Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen. One of the most popular films of 1954, White Christmas opens and closes with the title song, while in between it’s filled with one great musical number after another. Crosby and Kaye play entertainers who went through W.W.II together and decide to host a fundraising »

Veteran’s Day Tribute: The Ten Best Navy Movies

10 November 2016 4:39 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Veteran’s Day is November 11.  While we all try to escape from the most exasperating Presidential Campaign in our history let me pay tribute to the Men and Women who have served in the military to insure we keep our electoral process and our freedoms.

Having served in the Navy four years (there he goes again!) I have a keen interest in any movie about the military, especially the sea service.  I did serve during peace time so had no experience with combat but still spent most of my tour of duty at sea on an aircraft carrier, the USS Amerca CV66.  Among other jobs I ran the ship’s television station for almost two years.  Movies have always been important to me and so providing a few hours of entertainment every day when we were at sea was just about the best job I could have had.

Go On The Town With Sinatra and Kelly Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

7 September 2016 10:29 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Getting involved is so… so… involving.”

 On The Town screens at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater this weekend as part of their Classic Film Series. It’s  Saturday, September 10th at 10:30am at the Hi-Pointe located at 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117. The film will be introduced by Harry Hamm, movie reviewer for Kmox. Admission is only $5

Three sailors on a day of shore leave in New York City look for fun and romance before their twenty-four hours are up. That summary to the beloved 1949 musical On The Town should be sung to the tune of “New York, New York,” the most famous song to come from this rollicking adaptation of the Broadway musical. There’s nary a dull moment as we watch Gene Kelly search desperately for Vera-Ellen, Frank Sinatra play a young and naive sailor (!) who tries to resist going up to Betty Garrett’s place but eventually gives in, »
