“`The historic St. George Theatre in Staten Island has announced that it will host its first classic movie series next year to coincide with its ninetieth anniversary. Here is the lineup:

“`Completed in 1929 by architect Eugene DeRosa and the dean of Staten Island architects, James Whitford, this 2,876-seat St. George Theatre was originally home to vaudevillians. It first opened on December 4, 1929, with the film premiere of So This is College starring Robert Montgomery. The theater screened thousands of first-run movies until 1977.

“`In 2004, Rosemary Cappozalo, Luanne Sorrentino, and Doreen Cugno began a not-for-profit organization to save the historic theater from destruction, and restore it to its original beauty.

“`Enjoy if you live New York City area.
