Violent Saturday

Series: Cinema Classics

Our monthly Cinema Classics series presents a digital restoration of Richard Fleischer’s VIOLENT SATURDAY! The Sunday screening is free for Hollywood Theatre members.

VIOLENT SATURDAY (1955):  A trio of bandits (Lee Marvin, Stephen McNally, J. Carrol Naish) arrives in the quiet Arizona mining town of Bradenville, where they plot to rob the local bank.  But film noir blends with melodrama as director Richard Fleischer and screenwriter Sydney Boehm explore the townspeople’s own sordid personal stories—running the gamut from promiscuity and kleptomania to voyeurism, alcoholism, and infidelity—which run parallel to the heist.  Don't miss your chance to see this rarely seen classic, shot in stunning Cinemascope, on the big screen!
