Mondays at the Mahaiwe

Rural Intelligence Arts Section Image

The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center’s Monday Night at the Movies is one of those almost great ideas. The premise is promising: a weekly showing of a classic film on a big screen in the exquisitely restored 1904 theater on Castle Street in Great Barrington. The Mahaiwe, which has been used over the years for vaudeville, operas and movies, is a gem and you understand why theaters used to be known as movie palaces.  For many of us, it’s the first time to see these movies in a theater and not on a TV, so the Mahaiwe is really performing a public service.  Who wouldn’t want to see masterpieces like Charlie Chaplin’s City Lights or The Maltese Falconthe way our grandparents did?
