Bringing Up Baby
Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant star in this 1938 romantic comedy directed by Howard Hawks. It’s been called the quintessential screwball comedy and one of the funniest movies ever made. It even ranks on the American Film Institute’s 100 greatest American films of all time list. A little romance, a lot of laughter – a great film to help us get through the month of February.
films begin at 1:30 – no registration required – space is limited
Films will soon be showing at the Pakenham Branch as well. Stay tuned!
