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.
FATHER GOOSE is a genial comedy starring Cary Grant as a South Seas beachcomber unwillingly pressed into service as a spotter for the British during WWII. Leslie Caron is the lovely evacuee schoolmistress who washes up on his island- with seven girls in tow. Trevor Howard's long-suffering officer on the other end of the radio is my favorite character.
The movie starts at 7 in the Toby theater. We'll meet at the seating area of the Toby lobby at 6:45. If you can't make it before showtime, look for us in the lobby after the movie as we gather for post-movie discussion.
