About the Event
We begin with Dave Moreno playing the theater’s historic Robert Morton Organ with a selection of themed musical pieces. This 1954 Disney version of Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea represented the studio’s costliest and most elaborate American-filmed effort to date. Kirk Douglas plays a trouble-shooting 19th century seaman, trying to discover why so many whaling ships have been disappearing of late. Teaming with scientist Paul Lukas and diver Peter Lorre, Douglas sets sail to investigate–and is promptly captured by the megalomaniac Captain Nemo (James Mason), who skippers a lavish, scientifically advanced submarine. This film won 2 Academy Awards for Best Film Direction and Best Special Effects.
