Winter Nights at the IMA: The Thin Man

Friday nights in January and February mark your calendars for the 2014 Winter Nights Film Series at the IMA. The series theme this year is comedies- mostly classic Hollywood. January's lineup moves through the decades from the '30s to the '80s, while February's is dedicated to the great comedians of the silent era.

William Powell and Myrna Loy star in mystery-comedy THE THIN MAN as married high society sleuths in the first of the six film series inspired by Dashiell Hammett's detective novel of the same name. Co-starring is a wire-haired fox terrier named Skippy who would go on to become one of Hollywood's best loved canine actors.

The movie starts at 7 in the Toby theater. We'll meet for dinner at 6 in the museum's IMA Cafe (off the main lobby next to the gift shop). If you can't make it before showtime, look for us in the Toby lobby after the movie as we gather for post-movie discussion.

TICKETS AND PARKING: The IMA is located at the northwest corner of 38th St and Michigan Rd on the city's near west side. Tickets are $9/ $5 for IMA members and can be purchased, at the museum or online, in advance or on the evening of. A series pass is $63/ $35 for IMA members. Paid parking is available in the main surface lot and the garage for $5/ free for IMA members. There's free-to-all parking in the smaller lots located by the Michigan Rd entrance

    Lots of laughs--some intentional (some not just because a few things were so quaintly outdated like the clunky rotary phones, married couple having to sleep in twin seperate beds in ornate PJs, seltzer water bottle, etc.) great "chemistry" with the witty dialogue and physical comedy--the murder mystery aspect was definitely secondary. It was a light hearted night of comedy with an impressive turnout on a cold Indy night...just wish the IMA would be smart enough to leave the cafe open until 7.

    Was this the birth of one-liner cinema? The only negative is that I missed some of the snappy dialogue- because I couldn't hear the soundtrack over the laughter.
