The Final Season - Week 4: 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.
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.
