Join us on Saturday, April 27, 2024 at 7:30 p.m. EST for Sin Takes a Holiday (1930), directed by Paul L. Stein, starring Constance Bennett, Kenneth MacKenna, Basil Rathbone, Zasu Pitts.

The daring spirit of the pre-Code era is alive and well in this sparkling romantic comedy about Sylvia (Constance Bennett), a dowdy secretary who agrees to marry her boss, an unscrupulous lethario, in a sham ceremony so he can evade marriage to another woman. Along the way, Sylvia re-discovers herself as she contemplates an affair with a chaming Brit (Basil Rathbone), while confronting feelings for her new husband. Sylvia’s transformation from ugly duckling to uninhibited swan is just one of the film’s many delights. With a witty script, engaging performances, and generous doses of pre-code innuendo, this underrated gem is a great way to spend a Saturday night!

Our wonderful pre-show begins at 7:15, don’t miss it!

There is no charge for this screening, but we are suggesting a donation of $10 to help cover ongoing costs

    I was unable to watch the March 26 presentation. On Saturday I received emails inviting me to log in but everything I tried failed. “Not Available”.

    You may keep the $20 I donated. My gift.
