PHILADELPHIA STORY

75th Anniversary!

7:00 show added on Tuesday, September 1!

(1940) dir George Cukor w/Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, James Stewart [112 min; 35mm]
Hands down one of the funniest and most beloved screwball romantic comedies of all time. The madcap escapade revolves around a tabloid reporter (Stewart) sent to a society wedding who falls for the free-spirited bride (Hepburn) while she contemplates a reunion with an old flame (Grant).

“Every time Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and Jimmy Stewart connect in a scene, we hear the happy ding! of quality champagne crystal.” – Film.com

★★★★★ “It has been a long time since Hollywood has spent itself so extravagantly, and to such entertaining effect, upon a straight upper-crust fable, an unblushing apologia for plutocracy.” – Bosley Crowther, New York Times (1940)
