Not many movies rate 100 % on the Rotten Tomatometer, but this 1944 classic MGM romantic musical comedy does. So that’s why we’re screening it for our last Girls’ Night Out of the year!
The Vincente Minnelli film, nostalgic and poignant, focuses on four sisters (one of whom is the nonpareil Judy Garland) on the cusp of the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair. The film spotlights the sisters’ education in the ways of the world, which includes, but isn’t limited to, learning about life and love, courtesy of the prototypical boy next door. In the end, love — accompanied by song, dance and period costumes, all in glorious Technicolor — conquers all.
This movie takes places over the course of an entire year, so it’s not entirely a holiday movie. But it gave us “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and we hope you will!
Thurs. Dec. 20, 7 pm Tickets $10 and come with a complimentary glass of wine. For $35 you also get a three-course prix fixe dinner at 80 East Gastropub around the corner!
