About the Event
The Electric Film Series returns to the Electric Theater on Tuesday, March 21st at 6 PM (Doors at 5:30 PM) with a screening of a James Cagney-headlined epic from the 1930s;
“Angels With Dirty Faces” (1938)
From 1938 comes this crime/drama starring the forever iconic James Cagney as Rocky Sullivan, a bold and brash criminal who, after spending years in prison, returns to the streets where he once grew up. He eventually reconnects with a friend from his youth, now a priest, who’s presented with the daunting task of trying to prevent a group of hooligans from falling under Sullivan’s persuasive influence. Cagney was nominated for an Oscar for his charismatic turn in this much-beloved movie.
Per usual, we at The Electric Film Series aren’t just about the movies themselves. We’re also about film history and context and as such, with each of these screenings, we have a very special guest on hand to introduce the title of the evening and to lead a post-screening discussion. Our special guest for “Angels With Dirty Faces” is Southern Californina-based filmmaker, Mike Caravella. Caravella made a splash on the film festival circuit a couple of years back with a goofy but spirited short film called “Astral Plane Drifter” which will be extended into a feature film later this year. As it turns out, Caravella grew up on the classics and he just so happens to be a big James Cagney fan making him the perfect special guest for this screening.
Be sure to arrive at the screening a little early and order an optional menu item from Riggatti’s to enjoy during the post-screening discussion or, you can feel free to take it home with you following the movie.
On a final note, don’t forget to spread the word about the 2023 Electric Film Series! We have quite the year planned and screenings of this nature are always a grander experience when accompanied by a big, enthusiastic, cinema-loving crowd.
We hope to see you all there!
