   The Lake Geneva Film Club is officially back and we are ready for some Film-Noir! 


  In Hollywood of the 50's, the obscure screenplay writer Joe Gillis is not able to sell his work to the studios, is full of debts and is thinking in returning to his hometown to work in an office. While trying to escape from his creditors, he has a flat tire and parks his car in a decadent mansion in Sunset Boulevard. He meets the owner and former silent-movie star Norma Desmond, who lives alone with her butler and driver Max Von Mayerling. Norma is demented and believes she will return to the cinema industry, and is protected and isolated from the world by Max, who was her director and husband in the past and still loves her. Norma proposes Joe to move to the mansion and help her in writing a screenplay for her comeback to the cinema, and the small-time writer becomes her lover and gigolo. When Joe falls in love for the young aspirant writer Betty Schaefer, Norma becomes jealous and completely insane and her madness leads to a tragic end.

What's this Film Club all about?

  • The Lake Geneva Film Club was created for all movie lovers to experience their favorite films  (the right way) on the big screen. It’s amazing how in today’s world we may even see a movie for the first time on a 5” screen! That’s fine (I guess) but we are going to try and bring back the wonderful movie-going experience with some of the best films of all time and show them with all the respect they deserve... We have compiled some of our all time favorites from classics like Doctor Zhivago, North by Northwest, Psycho and Bridge on the River Kwai, to underground cult films such as Taxi Driver, Mad Max, A Clockwork Orange and everything in between. Anything that we feel is worthy of the movie theater experience will be considered and there won’t be any limits to what will be shown.  All movies will be viewed at the newly re-opened Geneva Theater - 244 Broad St. in downtown Lake Geneva. They have done an incredible job restoring this classic cinema that first opened in 1928. They also offer beer, wine and of course regular concessions to add to the experience. Once a month a new film will be shown and here’s the best part... We are a not for profit organization so all proceeds will be going directly to the Never Say Never Playland that is being built in Veterans Park. This park is being specifically made for children with special needs, and where everyone can play as equals...A simple $10 donation will get you your movie ticket but anything additional would be greatly appreciated. We feel this is such an incredible organization and we are so happy to donate to this special cause. Let’s get this park built! Visit www.NeverSayNeverPlayland.com for more info... 

  • Visit https://www.facebook.com/lakegenevafilmclub/ for all the film gossip and to stay informed on all the upcoming movies and events. We really hope everyone will enjoy this new addition to our great little city of Lake Geneva!
