And You Thought You Knew Classic Movies at Palace Theater with film historian John DiLeo on January 21

On January 21 join us at The Palace when film historian John DiLeo presents AND YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW CLASSIC MOVIES: A Film Journey Through Hollywood and America.

DiLeo presents a fun, informative and idiosyncratic  history of Hollywood’s Golden Age, while telling a parallel story of America itself. From the Depression to World War II to the Cold War to the sexual revolution, DiLeo presents a vision of just how the movies traveled from 1930 to 1970.

During this multi-media presentation, DiLeo will spotlight film clips from movies featuring Bette Davis, Clark Gable, Judy Garland, James Cagney, Doris Day, Gene Kelly, Natalie Wood, and Steve McQueen. After the presentation, he’ll be signing copies of his newest book, Ten Movies At A Time, the companion book to this presentation.

John DiLeo is the author of six books about classic movies: And You Thought You Knew Classic Movies, 100 Great Film Performances You Should Remember—But Probably Don’t, Screen Savers: 40 Remarkable Movies Awaiting Rediscovery, Tennessee Williams and Company: His Essential Screen Actors, Screen Savers II: My Grab Bag of Classic Movies, and Ten Movies at a Time: A 350-Film Journey Through Hollywood and America 1930-1970. John frequently hosts classic film series and conducts film history seminars.
