Screening of "A Star is Born" with discussion afterward
A Star is Born (1937), the original timeless tale of Hollywood, its heartaches and triumphs. Janet Gaynor stars as Esther Blodgett, a small-town girl who dreams of becoming a movie star. While she’s working as a waitress at a fancy Hollywood party, Esther meets Norman Maine (Fredric March), the biggest male star of the day. After a whirlwind courtship, the two marry and, for a time, are the darlings of movieland. When Esther’s career rises, Norman’s declines and the marriage relationship deteriorates. Directed by William A. Wellman (“The Public Enemy”) and produced by David O. Selznick (“Gone With the Wind”) this early Technicolor production still impresses today. This is the version that spawned all the latter versions, including the 2018 release starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. General Admission: $5, Students and Senior Citizens: $3
