Screening of "The Awful Truth" with discussion afterward

The Awful Truth (1937) The first screen pairing of Irene Dunne and Cary Grant is an absolute gem. This Academy Award winning comedy has everything: great acting, dialogue, and a wonderful cast of supporting players. Lucy (Dunne) and Jerry (Grant) Warriner are facing divorce, but do they really want to break up? Lucy finds herself involved with a rich oil tycoon and Jerry starts courting a young woman from a well-heeled aristocratic family. Both try to foil the others’ new romances, while refusing to face the awful truth, that they’re still in love with each other. Nominated for five Academy Awards, including a third Best Actress nod for Dunne. Director Leo McCarey (Love Affair, Going My Way,) won an Academy Award for his direction.

General Admission: $5, Students and Senior Citizens: $3

    I never tire of seeing "The Awful Truth." Irene Dunne and Cary Grant were the ideal movie pair.
