There are no refunds or exchanges for arrivals after the film begins (c. 9 pm) or for entirely missed screenings. Please, no pets or outside food or drink.

August 4: Key Largo

The fourth and final Bogie and Bacall film reunited Bogart (for the third time) with his old drinking buddy and director John Huston. Adapted from a Broadway play by Maxwell Anderson (The Wrong Man, All Quiet on the Western Front), Key Largo is a hybridized noir with callbacks to the classic gangster films of the 1930s. Bogart plays a World War II veteran whose moral duty places him and the widow of a fallen comrade in the crosshairs of a seedy criminal (Edward G. Robinson) and his goons. Add an approaching hurricane into the mix and you have a near-perfect, tropical potboiler of a film. “In many ways, Key Largo is the definitive post-war film.”—David Crow, Den of Geek.

Advance tickets are available at nwfilm.org: $10 general; $9 student/senior/PAM member; $7 Silver Screen Club Friend. Tickets at the door are $12 general; $11 student/senior/PAM member; $9 Silver Screen Club Friend.
