The West Orange Film Society hosts the 15th annual West Orange Classic Film Festival.
Held over eight Sundays throughout January and February in the town where Thomas Edison invented movies, the West Orange Classic Film Festival returns for its fifteenth season, once again giving lovers of cinema a chance to experience their favorite films as they were meant to be seen-on the big screen. This year’s festival looks back at highlights of their first decade and a half, with each film followed by a discussion led by a local film scholar/critic. Three of the feature length films to be presented won the Academy Award for Best Picture for the year of their release, and were selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant".
“Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” (1939)
James Stewart portrays the title role of a newly appointed United States Senator who fights against a corrupt political system. The film also stars Jean Arthur, Claude Rains, Edward Arnold, and Thomas Mitchell. “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” was nominated for eleven Academy Awards, winning for Best Original Story.
