20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Fleischer, 1954): Prince Charles Cinema, 3.25pm

This 35mm screening is part of the Classic Film season at the Prince Charles Cinema. You can find the full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
Grandly entertaining 1954 film of the Jules Verne novel, produced by Walt Disney and directed by the tireless Richard Fleischer (who, 30 years later, was still tossing off odd pleasures like Red Sonja and Conan the Destroyer). James Mason is a monomaniacal Captain Nemo; Kirk Douglas and Paul Lukas are his reluctant guests aboard the Nautilus. With Peter Lorre and Carlton Young.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
