The April 7, 2017 movie is the film classic Philadelphia Story, a true comedy classic with one of the best casts ever assembled.
When a rich woman's ex-husband and a tabloid-type reporter turn up just before her planned remarriage, she begins to learn the truth about herself.
From Filmsite.org movie review:
The Philadelphia Story (1940) is an intelligent, sophisticated, classic romantic comedy-farce (part screwball) of love and marriage, human growth and class distinctions.
Its screenplay is a witty, sparkling, and bright adaptation of Philip Barry's Broadway hit play. The play opened in late March 1939 and ran for a full year with more than 400 performances and a nationwide tour. Barry's inspiration for the lead female character was derived from real-life Philadelphian WASP heiress Hope Montgomery Scott (1905-1995).
Directed by George Cukor and written by Donald Ogden Stewart (screen play), based on a play by Philip Barry, the movie stars Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, and James Stewart.
The movie is free. There will be snacks for sale at a reasonable price.
