For 75 years, Drexel Theatre has showcased an eclectic, globetrotting mix of the latest offerings from Hollywood and the independent-film scene. These days, all three of the nonprofit theater's auditoriums screen those pictures with digital projections and Dolby digital sound. Every so often, however, the theater's proprietors dust off their old 35-millimeter projectors for specialty showings of classic films, such as the spooky flicks at Drexel's annual 24-hour horror marathon. That only skims the surface of the Drexel's events lineup, which includes silent pictures with live scores and onetime screenings followed by Q&As with the filmmakers. The membership program introduced in 2011 boasts more than 400 members, whose loyalty and commitment to keeping the theater open is rewarded with discounted tickets, free concessions, and invitations to advanced screenings.
