Patch Projector: The Great Escape

The Count Basie Theatre's Free Film Series continues with the 1963 classic The Great Escape.

The Count Basie Theatre is holding its annual Free Film Series presented by Friends of Film, The Film Foundation and The Count Basie Theatre Foundation. The series gives audiences a big screen look at some great old(er) movies in a great old theater. The splendor of the space, a paradise for cinema lovers, presents films in a setting suited to their original showcase. 

Actor Brian Gaskill reviews this week's classic, The Great Escape, and interviews some fellow Red Bank movie goers about the great escape of movies and the indomitable spirit.

Upcoming films include two Elia Kazan classics, On The Waterfront and A Face in the Crowd, a surprisingly dramatic tour de force for lead Andy Griffith. For more information or to reserve your tickets (the movie is free, but you must have a ticket to attend), go to: www.countbasietheatre.org

Who are those incredibly handsome, articulate, intelligent people that appear at 4:15?

I hope this series continues in tandem with each film shown ~ it was refreshing to watch people be re inspired by seeing an old great film the way it was intended to be seen and have their feedback ! Great concept and well made!

Steve - super job. That piece had me thinking, smiling, chuckling and reflecting. Great work.

Great job, Brian! Without actually seeing the film, your interviews inspire one to draw on their own indomitable spirit....I wish I had been there to see both you and the movie!
