County Unveils Hollywood Summer Nights
The film schedule for summer 2012 includes a healthy dose of Bond and Hitchcock, plus the ever-popular Python Fest.
The County Theater has the recipe for hot summer nights - just add Hollywood.
Doylestown's independent theater on Thursday unveiled its 2012 Hollywood Summer Nights schedule.
The program includes two types of films, Hollywood Classics and After Dark, the theater's special events manager, Chris Collier, said on the theater's blog.
"The Hollywood Classics are your Golden Age of Hollywood fare and are family friendly," Collier wrote, adding, "In fact, we encourage you to bring your family – all of our Hollywood Classics are free for ages 18 and under.
"The After Dark series is a bit more gritty and probably not for everyone, but we still wanted to see these films back up on the big screen."
As usual, dress in theme for the movie and the popcorn is free.
Take a look at the full film lineup here, and then head on over to the County's blog to let them know which ones you're most excited about.
Here's the schedule for both the County Theater and the Ambler Theater, both of which are owned and operated by Renew Theaters.
