'THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING' Kicks Off 2012 Victoria Cool Films Series in Ohio, 6/29-7/1


Victoria Theatre Association presents the first film of the 2012 Victoria TheaTre Cool Films Series, THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING, THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING, June 29 – July 1, 2012.

Released in 1966, this film puts a light-hearted spin on the Cold War era. Side-splitting fun is in store for all as they watch Carl Reiner and Alan Arkin play Soviet submarine crewmembers who accidentally invade the New England coast. Nominated for four Oscars, including Best Picture, THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING, THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING is a must-see.

What's the best part about the 2012 Cool Films Series (besides FREE popcorn and soda)? Tickets are just $5 each, or $28 for a 10-ticket passbook for passbook subscribers – a great entertainment bargain during a year when gas prices have been hovering near $4 per gallon.

Films are shown at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. on Sundays in the Victoria Theatre. Recreating the feel of the old-time movie palaces, guests may enjoy free popcorn and soda in the lobby beginning one hour prior to showtime, a Mighty Wurlitzer organ concert beginning 30 minutes prior to showtime, and a classic cartoon just before the movie.
