Madcap Genius Film Series says
This series salutes Preston Sturges, the cinema’s foremost madcap satirist, who set a standard of comic perfection that today’s filmmakers still aspire to.

In these six 35mm films, Sturges targets everything from politics and advertising to sex and hero worship, with pungent wit and affection. His incomparable blend of quirky, richly drawn characters, impeccably timed physical comedy, and stinging, rapid-fire dialogue has never been equaled.

Upcoming film:

August 13: Hail the Conquering Hero
All films 35 mm.

A limited number of single-film tickets may be available on a first-come, first-served basis the day of the show, at 7:25 pm, at the auditorium entrance for $8 (cash/check only).
