Event Details

Join us the first Saturday of every month for some great classic films. Light refreshments provided.

This month's film is Frank Capra's Oscar-winning You Can't Take It With You (1938), a film that was adapted from a Broadway play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, which won a Pulitzer Prize in 1937.

Starring Jean Arthur, Lionel Barrymore, James Stewart, Edward Arnold, and Mischa Auer, this film centers around a corporate land grab that upends a blossoming romance between a stenographer from an eccentric family (Arthur) and a vice president with a snobbish wealthy family (Stewart). Hijinks ensue, arrests are made, and the laughs abound in this screwball romantic comedy that highlights the humanity that resides within even the most hardened hearts.
