SUMMER CLASSIC MOVIE SERIES -- JULY 10 - AUGUST 17
Beat the heat this summer and checkout these cool comedy classics on the big screen!
The Classic Comedy Series continues this week with Preston Sturges' zany romantic comedy, PALM BEACH STORY (1942). One of the last, classic screwball comedies of the era, thiswitty, nonsensical story of mistaken identities and deception stars Claudette Colbert and Joel McCrea in a cynical satire that effectively skewers the idle rich and the empty pursuit of money. Sponsored by THE UGA WILLSON CENTER FOR HUMANITIES AND ARTS, with an introduction by AFAI board member DAVE MARR of the Willson Center at 8:00p thisThursday, July 31, and weekend encore matinees on Friday thru Sunday, August 1-3.
Also this weekend: Celebrate the Centennial Anniversary of The Tramp with a special assortment of early CHARLIE CHAPLIN SHORT FILMSfrom1914-16 this Saturday and Sunday August 2-3, full of silly slapstick fun for the whole family! And don't miss the endlessly quotable disaster spoof comedy AIRPLANE!, with late shows sponsored by DJ MAHOGANY at 10:00p this Friday and Saturday August 1-2!
