Elmer Gantry (1960) at Metro Cinema

USA 1960, 146 min, Dir: Richard Brooks

Presented by Sunday Classics and Snake Oil Cinema.

“Richard Brooks directs Burt Lancaster for what may be the star’s career-best performance as a charismatic salesman who sees the light (and/or dollar signs) as he enters the sphere of evangelist Sister Sharon Falconer (Jean Simmons). The superb supporting cast includes Shirley Jones (who, like Lancaster and Brooks’s adapted screenplay, won an Oscar for her role as the equally shrewd prostitute Lulu Bains). Based on the classic book by Sinclair Lewis.”

Event cost: Adult: $17 Youth/Students/Seniors: $11
