Bryan Cultural Series

Three films and three genres as the Bryan Cultural Film Series brings three classic movies to the big screen. The¬†Philadelphia Story, the¬†Red Shoes¬†and the¬†Magnificent Seven¬†are three movies that should be in every movie lover’s history of great movies.

Taking a deep dive into why the three movies in this year’s Film Series are classics, Dr. Chris Palestrant, Professor of Music Composition at ECSU, will offer his popular¬†“peek behind the curtain” look at how the movies were made and some little known titillating tidbits.

Dr. Palestrant will Peek Behind the Curtain at 4:00 p.m. Movies will be screened at 4:30.

The Movies:

Philadelphia Story
Sunday, February 19

Starring Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and James Stewart star in one of the great romantic comedies of all time.

Often copied, but never bettered, the Philadelphia Story is a sparkling romantic comedy with impeccable performances, witty dialogue, and then perfect vision of director George Cukor.


The Red Shoes
Sunday, March 5

Starring Moira Shearer, Anton Walbrook, and Marius Goring.

A powerful and ultimately tragic story of love and betrayal, the¬†Red Shoes¬†is considered one of the best film’s ever produced by British movie industry.


The Magnificent Seven
Sunday, March 19

The ensemble cast includes Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, James Coburn, and Horst Buchholz, and Eli Wallach

Akira Kurosawa’s 1954¬†Japanese film¬†Seven Samurai¬†is reimagined in what is arguably one of the best westerns ever filmed. Directed by John Sturges, the¬†Magnificent Seven¬†is an action-packed thriller that never loses sight of the humanity of the main characters.

All movies will be shown at  R/C Kill Devil Hills Movies 10, 1800 N. Croatan Highway, Kill Devil Hills.

Tickets are $10 for each movie and may be purchased online at the RC10 Kill Devil Hills theater or at the box office.  For more information about the Bryan Cultural Series and to find more information about the NC Symphony String Quartet concert event visit
