Neptune’s Daughter (canceled)

Screening Canceled

Due to lack of playable prints we will be unable to screen NEPTUNE’S DAUGHTER. ON THE TOWN will screen in its place at 3:15 & 7:30. We regret any inconvenience.

(1949) dir Edward Buzzell w/Esther Williams, Red Skelton, Ricardo Montalban, Betty Garrett, Xavier Cugat [95 min; TBD]
A cavalcade of late 1940s kitsch, NEPTUNE’S DAUGHTER is a lavish MGM musical starring the queen of the underwater spectacle, Esther Williams. The plot involving mistaken identities and romance with South American water polo players is, of course, entirely beside the point.
