The Lady Eve (1941) 


Stars Barbara Stanwyck, Henry Fonda, Charles Coburn, Eugene Palette, William Demarest and Eric Blore.

Directed by Preston Sturges. 94 mins.

A trio of card sharks preys on an unsuspecting, naive heir until one of them falls in love with him. If you have never seen a Preston Sturges film do see this one! From his directorial wizardry comes this sparkling romantic comedy, if not his best effort and probably up there with the finest ever! Stanwyck and Fonda make a perfect duo surrounded by a splendid supporting cast of actors bringing forth a font of pure mirth that will send the audience leaving with smiles from ear to ear!!

Bring your own picnic dinner and drinks to enjoy from doors open. Supper available at intermission. Table seating. Professional projection and sound employed.
