Join CAS at the Laundry King at 65 Main Street, Livingston Manor, NY for a special screening of the classic film Chimes at Midnight (1965), featuring a talkback with programmer Bradley Diuguid.
A Shakesperean wintry lament for the “death of Merrie England,” with Welles’ “plump Jack Falstaff” and the forces of life and love versus Keith Baxter’s icily ruthless Prince Hal, with John Gielgud’s King Henry the moral center. One of the last films Welles would direct, this was hailed as a critical triumph and a standout among adaptations of Shakespeare to film.
