The Return of the Stanford Theatre

It's been a couple of months since we were making weekly excursions to the beautiful Sanford Theatre for their Hitchcock double features, and we have been itching to go back. Well, someone must have heard our cries and decided to answer them, because there are some great titles coming back to the Stanford in the next couple of weeks. Let's take a look:

Dracula (1931)
July 1-3 at 6pm and 8:55pm
The role that both blessed and cursed Bela Lugosi until the day he was buried in his Dracula costume, on the big screen! 
It will be playing with

The Old Dark House
July 1-3 at 7:30pm
This will be a first for me, but this poster is pretty cool. And Boris Karloff is a great selling point. 

Rashomon (1950)
August 15-18 at 7:30pm and 3:50 on Saturday and Sunday

This will be playing with 
Throne of Blood (1957)
August 15-18 at 5:30pm and 9:10pm
These are both directed by Akira Kurosawa and, although they may not be straight horror, the atmosphere and cinematic contribution these films made are reason enough to give them a watch. Also these films has 100% and 98% on Rotten Tomatoes respectively, if that matters to you. 

The Time Machine (1960)
August 22-25 at 5:30pm and 9:20pm
It will be playing with

Forbidden Plant (1956)
August 22-25 at 7:30pm and 3:45 on Saturday and Sunday
Both of these are huge titles that I must admit I have never seen, so this will be a great month of firsts for me! 

These are just a couple of the films that will be playing at the Stanford Theatre. You can find the full list of their summer lineup at their site and hopefully you guys will try to make it out to a couple of the double features.
