Event description

Description

Curated and hosted by Elevations Credit Union’s own Community Events Manager, Jeffrey Kash, this series brings the classics to the big screen in our flagship branch. Come rediscover or be introduced to your new favorite movie! Space is limited so be sure to RSVP early.

Desperate for cash, screenwriter Joe Gillis (William Holden) has a chance meeting with a faded silent film star. Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) lives in her crumbling Sunset Boulevard mansion with only her butler Max (Erich von Stroheim) to keep her company. She has become a sad, demented recluse convinced that the outside world is clamoring for her dramatic return. Enticing him with the prospect of script work, she puts him up in her mansion, and he becomes ever more involved and entangled in her life. Directed by Billy Wilder, the film was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, winning three of them, one of which was for Franz Waxman’s fascinating musical score.
