Inherit the Wind and Adam’s Rib showing in Rushville Saturday

RCP Cinema debut

RUSHVILLE — Rush County Players will be presenting movies at their new home, 306 N. Main Street! The public is invited to come see some terrific classic films, right here in our home town.

Opening night of the RCP Cinema will be Saturday, March 16. Films that evening will represent 2 different views of a courtroom, with the drama, “Inherit the Wind,” and comedy, “Adam’s Rib.”

Movies will begin at 7:30 p.m. and tickets for the double-feature are only $5. Soda, popcorn and candy will also be available.

The Cinema will also be presenting movies on Saturday, March 30, and will announce the titles soon.

A very special showing of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 13.

Adam’s Rib is a 1949 American film written by Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin and directed by George Cukor. It stars Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn as married lawyers who come to oppose each other in court. Judy Holliday co-stars in her first substantial film role. The music was composed by Mikl’s R’zsa, except for the song “Farewell, Amanda”, which was written by Cole Porter.

Inherit the Wind is a 1960 Hollywood film adaptation of the play of the same name, written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee, directed by Stanley Kramer.

It stars Spencer Tracy as lawyer Henry Drummond and Fredric March as his friend and rival Matthew Harrison Brady, also featuring Gene Kelly, Dick York, Harry Morgan, Donna Anderson, Claude Akins, Noah Beery, Jr., Florence Eldridge, and Jimmy Boyd.

Inherit the Wind is a parable that fictionalizes the 1925 Scopes “Monkey” Trial as a means to discuss McCarthyism.[3] Written in response to the chilling effect of the McCarthy era investigations on intellectual discourse, the play (and film) are critical of creationism.

The film was well-received upon its release and is considered a classic romantic comedy.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a 1975 musical comedy horror film based on The Rocky Horror Show, a musical stage play, book, music and lyrics by Richard O’Brien. The film is directed by Jim Sharman from a screenplay by Sharman and O’Brien. The production is a humorous tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the late 1940s through early 1970s. It introduces Tim Curry and features Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick along with cast members from the original Kings Road production presented at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 1973.

Still in limited release nearly 38 years after its premiere, it has the longest-running theatrical release in film history. It gained notoriety as a midnight movie in 1977 when audiences began participating with the film in theaters. Rocky Horror is the first film from a major Hollywood studio to be in the midnight movie market. The motion picture has a large international cult following and is one of the most well-known and financially successful midnight movies of all time. In 2005, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
