A CASE OF THE MONDAYS

Each month in 2023, the Drexel Theatre will screen a series of films based on a theme or a retrospective of the work of some of the world’s best filmmakers and performers.

In February, the Drexel gets sentimental every Monday with our series “Love Is in the Air.” First, we’ll leap into the arms of Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing, then follow Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams’ love affair in The Notebook, mess up a wedding and a few friendships with Bridesmaids, and finally take a trip to Paris in Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise.
