When you want to see a BIG movie, of course, it’s best to see it on a BIG screen.
Albany’s Palace Theatre has a BIG screen, and when it comes to BIG movies, well, “The Bridge On the River Kwai” is one of the BIGGEST. The film earned rave reviews when it was released back in 1957:
“A magnificent, moving film” – LIFE Magazine
“Brilliant is the word, and no other” – The New York Times
An epic tale of war, will and conscience, the film won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director (David Lean), Best Actor (Alec Guinness), Best Screenplay (Michael Wilson, Carl Foreman) and Best Music (including the classic whistling tune, “The Colonel Bogey March”).
