The Final Season - Week 4: Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

Welcome to the fourth week of our 10th and final season of Movies on the Roof! We hope to see you this Tuesday, July 30th, for Frank Capra's Mr. Smith Goes To Washington!

Join us for the blockbuster "feel good" movie that was characterized as a danger to democracy, banned in four European countries, and prompted walkouts at its premiere in 1939: Mr Smith Goes the Washington! Though this little-fish-in-a-big-pond story appears naive and optimistic on the surface, Capra's characterization of American politics is surprisingly cynical and much less sentimental than commonly thought.

So far the weather looks perfect! If thinks change we'll post to the website and Facebook, and we look forward to seeing you!

We're really looking forward to sharing this with you! Hope to see you Tuesday! The days are getting shorter and sunset is earlier in the back half of the season. You're welcome anytime after 6pm, the show will start around 8:15pm.
