Humphrey Bogart as Sam Spade in the Maltese Falcon the day after Thanksgiving

The Maltese Falcon at the Strand in downtown Vicksburg
Friday, November 24 at 7 PM


Okay, on the day after Thanksgiving, have a turkey sandwich and maybe some leftover 
dressing/stuffing; then bring the family to the Strand for one of the most fun film noirs 
ever: The Maltese Falcon. 

They do not make them like this anymore. Join Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, Sidney 
Greenstreet and Peter Lorre in their search for The Black Bird - "the stuff that dreams are 
made of.". 

Dashiell Hammett's novel has been made into a movie more than once, but this was 
director John Huston's first film and for him the stuff that careers are made of. 

The dark shadowy streets of San Francisco never seemed more sinister, the hero never 
more suspect, the villians, never more colorful. If you have never seen it, you will want to 
be there, if you have seen it, come see it on our big screen. You deserve it. 

As Caspar Gutman said, "there is only one Maltese Falcon." 

And don't forget: Free Popcorn! 

Advance tickets at Highway 61 Coffeehouse: $6.  
At the door: $8.

  1. I wish there were more places like this, because it was simply too amazing for words. I came to LA venues here with my boyfriend the other night, and it was absolutely fabulous. The use of wood throughout the place adds a very warm and inviting feel to venue.
