RIDGEFIELD, Conn. — Celebrate the 60th anniversary of Cecil B. DeMille’s epic film "The Ten Commandments" when it is shown on the big screen at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Wednesday, March 23.

Enjoy specially produced commentary from Turner Classic Movies’ host Ben Mankiewicz, who will offer his insight into the beloved film. For sheer pageantry and spectacle, few motion pictures can claim to equal the splendor of DeMille's 1956 remake.

Filmed with one of the biggest sets ever constructed for a motion picture, it tells the story of the life of Moses (Charlton Heston), once favored in the Pharaoh's (Yul Brynner) household, who turned his back on a privileged life to lead his people to freedom.

"The Ten Commandments" will be shown at 2 p.m. at The Ridgefield Playhouse.

For tickets ($10), call the box office at 203-438-5795 , or visit ridgefieldplayhouse.org.

The Ridgefield Playhouse is located at 80 East Ridge in Ridgefield.
