Your Guide to Classic Movie Theater Filmgoing!
Step back in time to see what area movie theaters were presenting in February 1956. Film titles are linked to the Internet Movie Database.
The Movie Guide of the Detroit News suggested to husbands, "Make Your Wife Happy, Take Her to a Movie." At the Redford, patrons enjoyed double bills of movies first released in late 1955, including Rebel Without a Cause (James Dean), Artists and Models (Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis), and The Tender Trap (Frank Sinatra and Debbie Reynolds).
Visitors to the Michigan were treated to Walt Disney's live action The Littlest Outlaw (along with a 19-minute cartoon, Johnny Appleseed). The science fiction classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers also opened, with Shack Out on 101 as a second feature.
