for the movies that need to be seen on the BIG screen!
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.
Pre-movie cocktails and festivites will be at 5pm at
Baker House - 327 Wrigley Dr. Lake Geneva, WI
Directed By: Billy Wilder
Starring: Gloria Swanson, William Holden, Erich Von Stroheim

The Lake Geneva Film Club has donated over $6,000 in our first year to the Never Say Never Playland Project. Thank you all for supporting this club the way you have. Looking forward to another great year!
As of right now, tickets can only be obtained in person 30 minutes prior to the showing for $10 (CASH ONLY) and this will be on a first come-first serve basis. We have rented the larger 200 seat theater so there should be plenty of seats. Online ticket reservations will be coming back soon.
