Come join us for a night at the movies. The IMA will be playing Father Goose.
(1964, dir., Ralph Nelson, 118 mins., NR) Set during World War II, beachcomber
Walter Eckland (Cary Grant) is convinced to live on an isolated island and
report Japanese air activity. When he unwittingly comes to the rescue of French
schoolmistress Catherine (Leslie Caron) and her seven young charges, Eckland
realizes his peaceful isolation is at an end as he is forced into sobriety and
out of his hut. It seems that Catherine and Walter will never get along, until
Japanese soldiers arrive on the island and the two are forced to work together
to save the girls.
The cafe in the IMA is closed during the nights, but you can purchase popcorn and other snacks at the Toby counter. Doors open at 6:30, but I'd like folks to get there a little early so we can all sit together! tickets are $9 for non-members and $5 for members. Parking is $5 for non-members (free for members), or free in outlying parking lots. I highly recommend purchasing tickets beforehand either at the IMA or at www.imamuseum.org.
