Lincoln Theater presents Stories to Screen: Tom Sawyer (1973)

In Stories to Screen, the Lincoln Theater will be screening a classic family film, for free, on select Saturdays. A limited number of copies of the book on which the film is based can be picked up at the theater (It’s yours to keep!) to read before the screening. Prior to the movie, at 9:30 AM, we will have a brief discussion about the book and film. The movie will start at 10 AM. Reading the book is not required in order to attend and enjoy the movie.

Mark Twain's classic tale is brought to the screen for the fourth time, this time with a tuneful score by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, who also wrote the screen adaptation. Johnny Whitaker stars as Tom Sawyer, with Jeff East in his first film role as Huck Finn. Jodie Foster is also on hand, playing the role of Becky Thatcher. This enjoyable family fare was nominated for three Academy Awards: Best Art Direction, Best Song Score and Best Costume Design.
