Alamo Theatre

A Century of Movies at the Alamo
Every third Sunday from March through November

To celebrate the 100th birthday of the Alamo Theatre, we have decided to host a year-long film series where we take our community on a journey through all of the years of the Alamo's existence. Every third Sunday of the month at 6pm from March through November, we are going to show a different film from a different decade that the Alamo has served our community. The schedule is as follows:

March 20: Sherlock Holmes (1916)
April 17: Wings (1927)
May 15: The Wizard of Oz (1939)
June 19: Leave Her to Heaven (1945)
July 17: Hitchcock Double Feature: Vertigo (1958) and Rear Window (1954)
August 21: The Sound of Music (1965)
September 18: Young Frankenstein (1974)
October 16: Big (1988)
November 20: Fargo (1996)

We see this series as an integral part of the Alamo's year-long birthday party, so each title has been carefully curated by our staff to not only represent a significant place in film history, but also to create a celebratory atmosphere for the community. These are films that we ourselves enjoy and are excited to share with the Northeast Historic Film and Alamo communities.

ALL SEATS $5 ($7 for the Hitchcock Double Feature) and FREE to Members of Northeast Historic Film & Century Donors

Filmed in Augusta, Rockland and on Monhegan Island, Maine!
Disgruntled and iconoclastic Maine Congressman Charlie Winship (Treat Williams) has reached a crossroads in his life both personally and professionally.

After the Congressman publicly refuses to stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance at the opening of the morning session, he finds himself in the spotlight of a major media backlash and gaining increasing criticism from the public. Charlie's sense of honor blinds him to the fact that he has real enemies. His own Chief of Staff, Jared (Ryan Merriman), is in league with Laird Devereaux (George Hamilton), a corrupt former congressman and lobbyist.

Retreating to a small remote island in his district to deal with a fishing scandal growing into a small civil war, Congressman Charlie Winship begins to regain some perspective after meeting its people and witnessing the challenges they have come together to struggle against. Through the example of the rugged and self-reliant constituents fighting to save their way of life, the Congressman once again begins to find purpose and faith in himself and his country.

Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) was born in a poor section of Madras, India. From a very early age, mathematics was a language he spoke better than anyone around him. He was gifted like very few before him and was able to come up with complex formulas and theories without the usual supporting printed work. He just knows his theories are correct and will eventually be verified.

His goal was to send his work to noted mathematics professor, G.H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons), at Cambridge University in London, England, arguably the Mecca of mathematics. Hardy reads Ramanujan's work and asks him to come to Cambridge to work and study under his guidance. Ramanujan gleefully accepts the offer and heads to England to realize his dreams.
