"The Palm Beach Story" (1942): What this marriage needs is a good divorce!

If you'd like to have dinner before the movie, please note that when you RSVP (add a Comment, using the "Join the Conversation" box), so we can get a head count. We'll go to  Crepevine (click for info). Meet there at 5:45 PM. We'll head to the theater around 7:00 PM. Non-diners, we'll meet you on the balcony landing around 7:15. 


The Stanford Theatre does not accept credit cards, so come prepared with $7 cash for your ticket.

And now, on with the show!

The Palm Beach Story (1943) Starts: 7:30 PM, Ends: ~9:00 PM



Starring: Joel McCrea, Claudette Colbert, Rudy Vallee
Director: Preston Sturges
Plot: A struggling couple comes up with a great plan to advance his career -- or at least, she does: She'll take the train to Florida, divorce him, and marry a gullible millionaire. With the money from her sham marriage, she'll help finance her true love's ambition of creating airports suspended on nets hung over large cities! Needless to say, things don't go completely according to plan… A classic, Preston Sturges, marital farce.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
