Silent and Classic Movie Nights at Heritage Square
July 23: “Badlands of Dakota” (1941), F“featuring a legendary cast including Robert Stack, Ann Rutherford, Lon Chaney Jr., Frances Farmer, Addison Richards and Richard Dix. During the blackest, boldest days of the West we find Deadwood City, “a roaring capital of an empire of lawlessness.” Robert Stack was the great-grandson of William Hayes Perry, whose 1876 residence, the Perry Mansion, now stands at Heritage Square Museum.”
July 30: Film Noir classic “Kiss Me Deadly” (1955) starring Ralph Meeker, Albert Dekker, Paul Stewart, Cloris Leachman, and Jack Elam. “Filmed in historic Downtown LA locations such as Bunker Hill, Mickey Spillane’s iconic character Mike Hammer is caught in a whirlpool of mystery revolving around a doomed female hitchhiker he tries to help. Special, never before seen silent shorts courtesy of Flicker Alley will be shown before each film.”
Free for Museum Members and a $10.00 donation for the General Public. Gates open at 7:30 p.m. for picnics, with the show starting each Saturday after 8:00 p.m. Screenings will take place on the lawn near the Palms Depot. Guests are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets to sit on, a small picnic to eat before the movies begin, and warm clothing. Beverages and snacks will be available with suggested donation.

Contestants may enter their freshly made fruit pie for 20 judges to taste. Each attendee desiring to be a judge will donate $1.00 and will be given a ballot and samples of each pie entered.”
