Could you use a good laugh? Come join us to see the newly restored 35mm print of the Garbo classic comedy followed by a relaxing dinner in Little Italy.

“Garbo laughs” (or so proclaimed the original ads) in this celebrated Lubitsch comedy starring Greta Garbo and co-written by Billy Wilder. Prior to cracking up, Garbo is a severe, no-nonsense Soviet agent who has been sent to Paris to supervise the sale of some valuable jewels for her government. While there she falls for a debonair Western playboy (Melvyn Douglas) who represents everything she hates. With Bela Lugosi.

Tips for improving the restaurant experience:

Let us know your dinner plans when you RSVP so that we can either save you a seat at the "Movie Group" table or plan to meet you at the movie.

Print out a map or enter the restaurant address in your GPS ahead of time.

We can't always split the checks so please bring CASH to pay for your meal.

If you don't see us when you walk in, ask to sit with the "Movie Group".

The $5.00 yearly fee (or $1.50 for one movie) goes toward charges incurred for using the MeetUp website. You can access PayPal (see link in left hand column) or pay your fee to the Organizer at the event.

In the world of Independent films, it is recommended that you check back a few days before the event to make sure the movie, restaurant, location or time has not changed.
