City of Lakeport, California

2nd Tuesday Classic Cinema: East of Eden
6/13/2017, starts 6:00 PM

The 1955 screen version of John Steinbeck’s bestseller, “East of Eden,” with James Dean, Julie Harris and Raymond Massey, will show at the Soper Reese Theatre on Tuesday, June 13, at 1:00 and 6:00 pm. Entry to the film is by donation. 


A film of great performances, atmospheric photography, and a sure sense of period and place, it is set in Monterey, Calif., and shot in the Salinas Valley, and in the town of Mendocino.   Brilliant direction by Elia Kazan, and a superior performance by James Dean in his first significant role, helped the film receive four Academy Award nominations, including a win by Jo Van Fleet for best supporting actress.


The movie is sponsored by Karen Weston and Jean Mead. Rated PG, with run time of 1 hour 55 minutes. The Soper Reese Theatre is located at 275 S. Main St., Lakeport, 707-263-0577,
