Directed by Preston Sturges | 1941

With Barbara Stanwyck, Henry Fonda, Charles Coburn, Eugene Pallette, William Demarest

“A movie like The Lady Eve is so hard to make that you can't make it at all unless you find a way to make it seem effortless. Preston Sturges does a kind of breathless balancing act here, involving romance, deception and physical comedy.”
—Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun-Times

Barbara Stanwyck gets the last—and best—laughs opposite Henry Fonda in this battle-of-the-sexes farce. She’s a brash and brassy con artist; he’s the dweeby snake-obsessed heir to a beer fortune whom she trains her sights on. Blink and you’ll miss one of Sturges’ many rapid-fire one-liners in this screwball masterpiece that somehow manages to develop into an achingly romantic, disarmingly moving romantic comedy that upends the genre.

6:30pm screening: dinner at 8:30pm
8:45pm screening: dinner at 6:45pm

Dinner Sold Out
