Silver Screen Classic Movie Series presents an all-day experiment on Saturday, July 13: A “New” “Old” Movie Marathon, beginning at 10 a.m. and continuing until that night. These movies are too new to show for Silver Screen, but they all focus on older times and timeless themes. In order, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., the movies include “Secondhand Lions,” “Airplane,” “The Princess Bride,” “Victor Victoria” and “Chinatown.” As always, the movies are shown in the Beecher Room of the Auburn Library, 350 Nevada St. in Auburn. Presented by the Library, the movies are free. For information, call 530-878-7938 or visit

The oldest movie, the mystery “Chinatown,” starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway, is from 1974, and takes place in 1930s Los Angeles. The newest movie, the musical “Victor Victoria,” is from 1982, and stars Julie Andrews, Robert Preston and James Garner. It takes place in 1930s Paris.

Moviegoers may come and go as they please, but specific tickets for each movie are available at the door half an hour before each movie. Seats are first come, first served and cannot be saved. Snacks, coffee and water are available for a donation.

The next Silver Screen movie, “Sleeper,” is shown on Saturday, Aug. 3.
