CLEOPATRA (1934) - 80th Anniversary!

Sunday, October 5 - 7:00PM Egyptian Theatre

Presented by the American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre in Association with Girls Drawin’ Girls and Golden Road Brewery.

Join us in celebrating the exact 80th anniversary of the premiere of Cecil B. DeMille’s CLEOPATRA starring Claudette Colbert. This version of the life of beautiful and powerful queen of Egypt, Cleopatra is known for its outlandish spectacle, including luxurious, risque gowns that are more slinky 1930s high fashion than ancient Egypt, but that is part of the film’s enduring charm! As a companion to the film screening is an art show. Guests will be admitted at 5:00 PM to see a solo exhibition by Ashley Brooke Cooper of ancient Egyptian inspired “pin up” art. Following the film is a party in the courtyard with photo ops, Egyptian theme activities and drinks sponsored by Golden Road Brewery. Dress like an Egyptian and you might win a price!

The film will start at 7:00 PM.

Special ticket prices: $13 General, $11 Students/Seniors, $9 Members.

Although outrageously appropriate to have originally premiered at the Egyptian, CLEOPATRA did not in fact make its debut in 1934 at our theatre. But, is there a more perfect place to celebrate its 80th anniversary?

It was an ordinary Friday. Courtney Brown, 24, of Kalamazoo, Mich., was busy looking for a job. “I’ve applied all kinds of places,” she says. “Wal-Mart, Target, Verizon Wireless.”
Then she got a strange letter in the mail. “‘We are writing you with good news,’” she reads to me over the phone. “‘We got rid of some of your Everest College debt … no one should be forced to mortgage their future for an education.’”
The letter went on to say that her private student loan from a for-profit college, in the amount of $790.05, had just been forgiven outright by something called the Rolling Jubilee.
Since November 2012, Rolling Jubilee has purchased and eradicated about $15 million worth of debt arising from unpaid medical bills. Today, the group announced that it has erased $3.9 million in private student loans, including Courtney Brown’s and almost 3,000 other students of the for-profit Everest College.
