Senator plans a classic spring


The venerable Senator Theatre, on York Road, has slated a "most-requested" festival with a program of 70-mm "roadshow" pictures.

The theater will show "West Side Story" beginning Friday for a week; "The Sound of Music" from March 22-April 4; "Doctor Zhivago" April 5-18; "Ben-Hur" April 19-May 2; and, on May 3, the newly restored print of what many critics at the time called the most intelligent epic ever made, Stanley Kubrick's great "Spartacus," with Kirk Douglas as the slave who led a revolt against imperial Rome.

According to Thomas Kiefaber, owner and manager of the theater, "The determination of which titles to include was based primarily on the availability of high-quality, complete roadshow prints, matched against our sense of the 'want-to-see' factor in our loyal following."

The productions will all be presented in state-of-the-art quality, complete with overtures, intermissions, walk-in music and Technicolor cartoons.
