The James Bond film series, based on the Ian Fleming novels, is one of the longest running series in film history. With an iconic central character, tons of intrigue, outlandish characters, and over-the-top chase scenes, audiences continue to return to the theater again and again.
A new film series at the historic Douglass Theatre celebrates the storied history of Bond with a month-long series of screenings showcasing classic Bond films by each of the five actors to portray the legendary spy.
"Goldfinger" was the first screening held in the series, and the third Bond movie ever made. Released in 1964, "Goldfinger" stars Sean Connery, the original Bond.
Continuing every Thursday in August, the Douglass Theatre will screen:
