THE AWFUL TRUTH - Drexel Anniversary Screening

Tuesday, December 25 at 2:00 p.m.

The Drexel will have an anniversary screening of The Awful Truth on Tuesday, December 25 at 2:00 pm. It was the featured film during the Theatre's opening weekend in 1937, after opening our doors on Christmas Day. Admission is only $1.00.

Leo McCarey won an Oscar for his direction of this classic screwball comedy in which Cary Grant and Irene Dunne play Jerry and Lucy Warriner, a couple whose marriage is starting to fall apart. Unfounded suspicions lead the married couple to begin divorce proceedings, whereupon they start undermining each other's attempts to find new romance.

Monday, December 31 at 7:00 p.m.

Celebrate New Year's Eve at the Drexel! See the classic film When Harry Met Sally.

In 1977, college graduates Harry Burns and Sally Albright share a contentious car ride from Chicago to New York, during which they argue about whether men and women can ever truly be strictly platonic friends. Ten years later, Harry and Sally meet again at a bookstore, and in the company of their respective best friends, Jess and Marie, attempt to stay friends without sex becoming an issue between them.

Starring: Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan, Carrie Fisher
Directed by: Rob Reiner
