Popular film series pulls into Issaquah Train Depot
May 8, 2012
The popular Films @ the Train Depot! series includes Hollywood classics and stars from a bygone era.
Films play at 7 p.m. at the historic Issaquah Train Depot, 50 Rainier Blvd. N. The program is free, due to support from the city Arts Commission and the King County cultural agency 4Culture.
“Quicksand” starts the series May 12. In the 1950 film, auto mechanic Dan Brady (Mickey Rooney) meets a blonde temptress (Jeanne Cagney) and tries to impress her. But Brady gets into trouble as minor embezzlement escalates into more serious crime.
On June 9, audiences can see “My Man Godfrey” — a 1936 film about a high-society scavenger hunt gone awry. Socialite Irene Bullock (Carole Lombard) stumbles upon a vagabond named Godfrey (William Powell) and offers him a position as a butler. But the bum is, in fact, the heir of a well-to-do family.
“Bluebeard” concludes the series July 14. In the 1944 film, John Carradine stars as Gaston, a puppeteer — and a wanted serial killer. Gaston has high expectations for his models, and he strangles them if they fail to please him. Model Lucille (Jean Parker) vows to bring the monster to justice.
