Gregory Orr's documentary explores the fascinating and extraordinary rags to riches story of Jack L. Warner, the founding father of the American film industry.

By generous permission of filmmaker Gregory Orr, The Cinema Museum present a rare screening of his feature length 1993 documentary telling the story of the man whose studio created many of Hollywood’s timeless classics.

Produced with the full cooperation of Warner Brothers, the film explores the fascinating rise of Jack Warner from obscure poverty to become head of one of the most famous movie studios in history. Made with an insider’s access to memories and material previously unseen by the public, the film captures—by way of rare photographs, home movies, film clips, unique location footage and exclusive interviews with family and friends — the life and times of a Hollywood legend.

Featuring interviews with: Efrem Zimbalist Jr, Rudy Behlmer, Shirley Jones, William T. Orr, Debbie Reynolds, Jack Warner Jr and many more.

All proceeds from this screening will go to the Save the Cinema Museum Campaign Fund – with thanks to Mr Orr.
