A NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: THE MARX BROTHERS ON THE BIG SCREEN!
Double Feature!
A NIGHT AT THE OPERA / ROOM SERVICE

In the Egyptian lobby at 6:30 PM, Steve Stoliar will sign copies of his book Raised Eyebrows: My Years Inside Groucho’s House and Robert Bader will sign copies of Groucho Marx and Other Short Stories and Tall Tales: The Selected Writings of Groucho Marx.

A NIGHT AT THE OPERA
1935, Warner Brothers,

The Marx Brothers' first film for MGM – also their first without Zeppo and their biggest box office hit – finds them in the mix with a couple of beleaguered opera-singer pals who are having career trouble. Enjoy the stateroom scene, the contract routine and tons of great one-liners. And remember: "There ain't no sanity clause!" Numerous writers (many uncredited) include George S. Kaufman and even Buster Keaton. With Kitty Carlisle, Allan Jones, Sig
Ruman and Margaret Dumont.


ROOM SERVICE
1938, Warner Bros., 78 min, USA, Dir: William A. Seiter

Groucho, Chico and Harpo stall to extend their hotel credit while trying to mount a play - with the expected chaotic results - in this zany Marx Brothers farce. Based on the play by Allen Boretz and John Murray, ROOM SERVICE is not only a delightful showcase for the brothers themselves, but for comedienne Lucille Ball, whose presence almost makes up for the lack of Margaret Dumont!
