JCCV FILM NIGHT on Monday, January 29th at 7:00 pm



1970 (93 minutes); Directed by Melvin Kaminski, Starring Ron Moody, Dom DeLuise and Frank Langella

One of the funniest films of all time! The story is based on the Russian classic about a man whose mother confesses, on her deathbed, to having hidden the family fortune in the seat of one of a matched set of 12 chairs. She did this to hide her jewels from the recently victorious revolution. The story becomes a madcap chase across the whole of Russia looking for the chair.

Oh and by the way, the Director Melvin Kaminski is better known these days as Mel Brooks! ‘Nuff said!!

Please join us for a fun evening of cinema…schmoozing…discussing and generally having a good time! State of the Art projection, large screen & great sound!

Snacks and cold drinks included in the $10 price of admission.

Always a classic cartoon and newsreel prior to the feature!
