Program Description


Help us celebrate the upcoming 75th anniversary of FBCL by joining us for a viewing of Arsenic and Old Lace, starring Cary Grant. This dark comedy, filmed in 1944 will have you rolling in the aisles!

This dark comedy classic stars Cary Grant as Mortimer Brewster -- the only sane member of a charmingly lunatic family. When Mortimer brings his new bride to meet his two beloved aunts, he discovers that – among many other kindly acts of charity – the two genteel ladies help lonely old men to die happy… by feeding them a wonderful meal before poisoning them and burying them in the cellar. Mortimer desperately wants to protect the two serial murderers he loves, stop them from killing anyone else, and keep his bride from discovering how deranged his family really is. This movie is not rated.

Registration is not required, but space is limited, so please come early.
