Afternoon Movie: "Auntie Mame" (1958)

8/1/14, 2:00pm - 4:30pm

In 1928, a 10-year-old boy goes to live with his eccentric, sophisticated aunt--a lady who throws a party for any occasion or non-occasion that comes to mind. Auntie Mame (Rosalind Russell) says "Life is a banquet--and some poor suckers are starving to death." Social-climbing executor Dwight Babcock does his best to raise Patrick as a stuffy American aristocrat, but Mame battles Babcock to allow the boy to be as free-spirited as she is. MPAA rating: NR. Running time:143 min. Adults. Room 1.
