"Films on Fridays" Series Visits United Methodist Homes at Bristol Glen
(Newton, NJ) Sussex County seniors are invited to attend a free movie presentation titled "Bringing Up Baby." Join us on Friday, February 23, 2018, at 1:30 p.m., at United Methodist Homes at Bristol Glen, 200 Bristol Glen Drive, Newton, New Jersey 07860. This presentation is hosted by United Methodist Homes at Bristol Glen and the Senior Life Center at Sussex County Community College. The Senior Life Center is the result of a collaboration between the Sussex County Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Senior Services and Sussex County Community College.
Join film historian Professor Michael Hughes at the Senior Life Center's newest offering, "Films on Fridays," to view a classic comedy followed by discussion of the "screwball comedy" genre. It's hard to believe today that renowned director Howard Hawks' film "Bringing Up Baby" was not a hit at the time of its original release in 1938. Now, of course, "Bringing Up Baby" is viewed as the quintessential screwball comedy and one of the funniest and raciest movies ever made. "Bringing Up Baby" tells the story of absent-minded professor, Dr. David Huxley (Cary Grant, in what was a real departure for him at the time, but you would think he was born to play such roles), who is one bone away from completing his giant brontosaurus skeleton when he has the great misfortune to be bowled over by dizzy-dame heiress Susan Vance (Katharine Hepburn), who, in one farcical 24-hour period, ruins his entire life.
Pre-registration is required and space is limited. Please contact the Division of Senior Services for additional program information or to pre-register by calling 973-579-0555, ext. 1277 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
