The black-and-white holiday classic MARCH OF THE WOODEN SOLDIERS (also known as BABES IN TOYLAND) screens this weekend at the Old Town Music Hall in El Segundo. This is perhaps the best film featuring the comedy team of Laurel and Hardy, who managed to make the jump from silent to sound film more successfully than most. Showtimes are Friday, December 19 at 8:15pm; Saturday, December 20 at 2:30pm and 8:15pm; and Sunday, December 21 at 2:30pm.
The Old Town Musical Hall typically features live organ music before its screenings, so be sure to arrive early and hear their fabulous house organ (which features an orchestra's worth of tone colors and percussion effects). The is located at 140 Richmond Street, El Segundo, CA 90245. Call (310) 322-2592 for more information or check out their website: www.otmh.org.
