Feature film to entertain this Friday

August 27, 2012 by  

A feature film entitled ‘It Happened One Night’ will finish the month at the State Capital Museum and Outreach Center located at 211 21st Avenue SW in Olympia, Washington. This is an outdoor event and sweaters may be necessary, in case of a chilly night.

This is the fifth year in a row for this event ‘Movies at the Mansion’. The evening will begin with a small segment on cinema history, with the feature film following at 9:00 pm, offering complimentary coffee to all who attend. Guests are required to bring a lawn chair or a blanket for this outdoor feature, which is part of a film series being offered at the historic and elegant Lord Mansion. During the viewing, snacks, popcorn, sodas, and candy will be available. If this date brings rain, the viewing will be held in the Coach House.

‘It Happened One Night’ is a classic film, featuring Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable. This story unravels as Claudette, the sad heiress, falls for a reporter, Clark, who she meets while traveling by bus across the United States. This film is filled with lots of comedy, some depression, and tastefully twined around a love story. In this film, there are no film sets, just the open roads the bus travels across America. The film has won 5 Academy Awards.

This film will begin at 8:45 pm this Friday, August 31, and poster printing and flyer printing were probably used to advertise this great series of movies to the residents of this community and surrounding areas. Admission is by donation and $2 is the suggested amount. For additional details about this film evening, please visit the Movies at the Mansion website or call 360-753-2580.
