Favorite Website of the Week: The Midnight Palace

hopper-ny-movie-sThe Pictorial believes that we just might have found the Internet’s most perfect classic movie website.

The Midnight Palace is only three years old, but contains an entire lifetime of goodies that are sure to soothe the sweet tooth of even the most voracious classic film fan. Owner Gary Sweeney states that The Midnight Palace “is an echo in time, a manifestation of yesterday that has resurfaced like a spectre with unfinished business. This is a grand theater that holds within its walls an era of unforgettable proportions. From the great silent films of German Expressionism to the final examples of Film Noir, The Midnight Palace stands as a testament to these landmarks of classic excellence.”  (Edward Hopper’s iconic New York Movie serves as an exceptionally appropriate visual to this noble manifesto.)

But The Midnight palace just doesn’t promise excellence, it delivers. With its exhaustive collection of film reviews, book reviews, interviews, essays, online film courses and plenty of pics and clips besides, the Pictorial is proud to pronounce, without any reservation, that the superlative Midnight Palace is simply the best of its kind on the web.
