Tuesday Night Classics

The Tuesday Night Classics series is dedicated to showing popular favorites and forgotten gems from the height of early 20th century film-making. Generally on the first and third Tuesday of the month and now with an additional matinee the same week either on Saturday or Sunday. This is a great way to experience a film from the Golden Age of Hollywood in a theater from that era. Friends of the Normal Theater receive free admission.

Jailhouse Rock

Vince Everett (Elvis Presley), is convicted of manslaughter after being drawn into a bar fight while trying to defend a woman. In prison, Everett finds salvation when his cellmate, a country singer named Hunk Houghton (Mickey Shaughnessy), hears him sing and pegs him as a future star. Once released, Everett gets a job in a night club and meets Peggy Van Alden (Judy Tyler), a young woman who works for a record company and who, like Houghton, also sees talent in Everett. Success goes to Vince's head before he is reminded that friendship and love are more important than money. One of the best pre-Army Elvis films, the mixture of story and songs perfectly showcases why Elvis Presley won the hearts of young people and earned the ire of adults across the country. NR / 96 min.
