In Frank Capra’s acclaimed romantic comedy, spoiled heiress Ellie Andrews (Claudette Colbert) impetuously marries the scheming King Westley, leading her tycoon father (Walter Connolly) to spirit her away on his yacht. After jumping ship, Ellie falls in with cynical newspaper reporter Peter Warne (Clark Gable), who offers to help her reunite with her new husband in exchange for an exclusive story. But during their travels, the reporter finds himself falling for the feisty young heiress.

Year: 1936

Live Opening Entertainment

We are delighted to welcome guitarist Benya Barshai (Beach Lake, PA) as our opening act entertainment for the screening of “It Happened Last Night”. Barshai, an internationally recognized musician, has crafted soundscapes and scored numerous films and productions.

Each opening act performance runs approximately 15 minutes prior to the feature screening.

About the Retro Cinema Series

DVAA and Bar Veloce invite you to join us for Retro Cinema Nights at the Tusten Theatre!

You won’t want to miss these one-night-only screenings featuring classic films paired with signature drinks and concessions. Each screening features live opening entertainment! Tickets include movie and themed snacks.

Located in Narrowsburg, NY, DVAA’s Tusten Theatre, an art-deco proscenium theater, was once home to the Park Theatre (which operated from 1938 – 1964 by the Harden Theater Chain which also ran movie theaters in what is today Catskill Art Space in Livingston Manor and the Callicoon Theater in Callicoon, among other venues), where movie-goers took in films from Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Today, the Tusten Theatre is one of the area’s preeminent venues to experience local and nationally recognized talent in live theater, dance, music, and more, as well as the Deep Water Literary Festival, DVAA’s Big Eddy Film Festival!

Grab a friend or two and prepare yourself to fall in love with going to the movies all over again. Doors open at 6:30pm!

Special thanks to our event sponsor, Seminary Hill Orchard & Cidery.
