Classic movies are coming to the Riviera Theatre in Emmetsburg. Now young and old alike will enjoy classic movies as they were meant to be seen, on the big screen without interruptions. “Face it...movies at the theater, with no distractions, along with some buttery popcorn from the concession stand, just can't be beat,” says Kathy Merrill, one of the coordinators of the program. “Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Gene Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, Jimmy Stewart and James Cagney are just some of the silver screen favorite actors and actresses from the 1930's through the 1950's. Now they will come to life on the big screen at the Riviera Theatre in Emmetsburg.” Beginning with the blockbuster "Singing in the Rain" on May 14, a classic movie will be shown at the Riviera Theatre on the second Sunday of each month beginning at 4:30 pm. Movie selections have something for everyone from thrillers to comedies, and musicals, drama, suspense, and action and adventure. "Our movie selections have something for everyone in the family", commented Merrill. "We picked audience favorites that can be enjoyed whether you are seeing them for the first time, or remember enjoying them from your past." There is no admission charge for this series of movies. The classic movies are sponsored by the Palo Alto Arts Council with a grant funding from Palo Alto County Gaming Development Corporation. "The Palo Alto Arts Council is pleased to offer this exciting new entertainment venue to showcase some of the great classic movies from our past", commented Lou Ann Huberty, Arts Council President. "We are glad to have the support of the Palo Alto County Gaming Development Corporation and the Riviera Theatre in Emmetsburg to bring this project to life."
