Dinner and a Movie - It Happened One Night

July 27th, 2012, 12:00pm to 3:00pm
This classic 1934 comedy from Frank Capra was the first film to ever win the five major Academy Awards, with Clark Gable as a news-hungry reporter chasing runaway rich girl Claudette Colbert from Miami to New York, falling in love in between their hilarious bickering. The film is full of memorable scenes often referred to in other films, such as the "walls of Jericho" (a bedcover hung on a line down the middle of a room) and Colbert's famous flash of thigh to stop a speeding car in its tracks.
