ARSENIC & OLD LACE (1944) – News-Gazette Film Series
January 13, 2018
Date/Time(s): Sat, January 13, 2018 – 1pm and 7pm
Seating: General Admission
(120 min) Mortimer (Cary Grant) has a right to call his family dysfunctional. An older brother who is an escaped convict, a younger brother who’s convinced he’s really Theodore Roosevelt, and, oh, yeah, two aunts who poison lonely bachelors. Meeting the in-laws is always difficult, but when Mortimer wants to bring home his new bride, he understandably has some reservations in this Frank Capra-directed adaptation of Joseph Kesselring’s stage comedy.
2017-2018 NEWS-GAZETTE FILM SERIES
Join us one Saturday each month as we screen the most beloved classic films of all time. Virginia Theatre organist David Schroeder performs on the Virginia’s historic Wurlitzer Pipe Organ at most News- Gazette screenings. NEW this year: before each 7pm News-Gazette film, take a trip back in time with a short sing-a-long with David at the Wurlitzer and our historic glass slides as your guide! The Virginia Theatre houses one of the largest collections in the country of these unique glass slides, each set printed with the lyrics to a classic tune from days gone by. Warm up your pipes and bring the whole family!
