As the new operators of The Maple Theater enter the final planning stages of renovations, the venue will be hosting "Secret Cinema" - a classic film series with a twist: you won't know which film you're seeing until the lights go down.
For this parting event, the theater is giving fans a chance to revel in the past before saying their goodbyes by presenting titles selected from the AFI's top 100 list.
Tickets are just $5 and include complimentary popcorn.
Monday night, brave cinemaphiles were treated to Mike Nichol's 1967 bittersweet bildungsroman, "The Graduate". If the illicit camera-phone shots snapped the minute a young Dustin Hoffman hit the screen were any indication, the surprise was a pleasant one.
The series continues all week and to make things more interesting, The Maple will be posting and linking to "hints" scattered across their social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
Tonight's another chance to relive the past with a sprawling masterpiece from an incredible filmmaker and producer. For those looking to spoil the fun, here's a clue: the film is younger than "The Graduate", but released prior to this second secret director's other film(s) on the AFI list.
If you can't make it to the show, be sure to check back with Bloomfield Patch tomorrow to see what you missed.
