The movies are held at the Shoreline-LFP Senior Center on the 1st Friday of the month from 1:30 – 4:00pm. 18560 1st Ave N - southernmost building on Shoreline Center campus.

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 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.
