This year the Orpheum's 2013 Summer Movie Series will commemorate the theatre’s 85th Anniversary, with a selection of films from the past eight and half decades. The series will run from June to August at the Orpheum Theatre. “As a former Malco Theatre, the Orpheum has a strong connection to movies, so we want to celebrate our history through this year’s series,” said Orpheum President and CEO Pat Halloran.
The Orpheum is also partnering with Indie Memphis for The Summer Movie Series event. Indie Memphis will present guest speakers, film critics, and local filmmakers preceding the Friday Night Classics. Presenters will share their personal stories and experiences with these films as well as little known facts about film and film history.
