Setting up its celluloid shop within the Bow-Tie Criterion Cinemas at Greenwich Plaza, the Greenwich Classic Film Series introduces beloved movies of the 1930s through the 1970s to contemporary audiences. Members attend either Monday or Tuesday evening screenings to see stars that include the glamorous Audrey Hepburn and the dashing Gary Cooper, all introduced by a film expert who can reveal little-known background information regarding the casting process or how black-and-white film concealed John Wayne’s constant milk moustache. The spring 2012 schedule includes surefire chuckles from a Tracy and Hepburn romantic comedy, Adam’s Rib (February 27 and 28), and the dress-wearing antics of Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis in Some Like it Hot (April 30 and May 1). One of Hollywood’s indispensible suspense movies arrives with the season’s second feature, High Noon (March 5 and 6), which will be lectured on by well-known cinema historian and world-class shadow puppeteer Foster Hirsch. All screenings begin at 7 p.m.
