DAVENPORT – During the month of May, the Putnam sent out a survey to get an idea of what types of classic films people would like to see here. The votes are in and the Putnam has created a wonderful lineup of films for you! The Classic Film Series begins this month on June 26! The Putnam’s Classic Film Series presents a great opportunity for movie-goers to revisit some of the greatest Hollywood films of all time! One classic movie will show one Tuesday a month, showing two times that day. The  series kicks off with a 1951 classic adventure film, The African Queen. In Africa during WW1, a gin-swilling riverboat owner/captain is persuaded by a strait-laced missionary to use his boat to attack an enemy warship! The films stars Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart, who won an Oscar for his role.
