Maya theater is currently featuring a Classic Movie film series on Thursday nights. This weeks featured film is the romantic comedy Roman Holiday with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. The film starts at 7:00 but I will be out front at 6:30 and will go inside at 6:40 to get a seat. Hope you can join us for this great "blast from the past" classic! Note: I will not be attending this event due to a last minute conflict. I hope you all have a great time.
Here is a quick synopsis of the movie.
Audrey Hepburn became a star with this film, in which she played Princess Anne, weary of protocol and anxious to have some fun before she is mummified by "affairs of state." On a diplomatic visit to Rome, Anne escapes her royal retainers and scampers incognito through the Eternal City. She happens to meet American journalist Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck), who, recognizing a hot news story, pretends that he doesn't recognize her and offers to give her a guided tour of Rome. Naturally, Joe hopes to get an exclusive interview, while his photographer pal Irving (Eddie Albert) attempts to sneak a photo. And just as naturally, Joe falls in love with her. Filmed on location in Rome, Roman Holiday garnered an Academy Award for the 24-year-old Hepburn.
