Bedford Playhouse will temporarily suspend theater and cafe operations beginning Monday, March 16. The Playhouse will remain closed through the end of March.
Starring: Basil Rathbone, Claude Rains, Errol Flynn, Olivia De Havilland, Patric Knowles
Robin of Locksley, a noble Saxon (Flynn), sees the people of England exploited by the Normans and their leader, Prince John (Rains), who’s seized the throne in his brother Richard’s absence. Robin and his followers work to undermine the corrupt regime until King Richard’s return. With Maid Marion (De Havilland) as love interest and Sir Guy Gisbourne (Rathbone) as nemesis, Robin is kept constantly occupied.
This rousing, gorgeously photographed adventure movie exemplifies the magical heights Warner Brothers attained in the Golden Age of the studio system. Bolstered by a consistently clever script, with both humor and romance complementing the derring-do, Curtiz’s Robin Hood is a milestone in Hollywood cinema: the first, and perhaps best, color swashbuckler.
Join us for a series featuring outstanding classic films on select Tuesday evenings once a month. John Farr, Founder of the Playhouse and Editor of bestmoviesbyfarr.com, will introduce and give a short talk about each film before the lights go down. After screenings, guests are invited to join him for “Farr @The Bar” – drinks and casual conversation following the film at Bambi’s Bar in the Playhouse Cafe.
