Spend weekday evenings with Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, Lana Turner, Carole Lombard, Joan Crawford and other stars of the 1930s and 1940s at the Mid-Manhattan branch of the NYPL, across Fifth Avenue from the Main Branch guarded by those two stone lions.

Screenings include what is generally regarded as one of the ten best films ever made, the Academy Award winning 1934 screwball comedy It Happened One Night, starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert and directed by Frank Capra, and one of my personal favorites. That showing is Tuesday, January 13.
Other films include San Francisco with its riveting scenes of the 1906 earthquake that set the standard for special effects for years to come, and Command Decision, one of the first films about WWII made after the war, in 1948.
Screenings are Monday to Thursday, starting January 5th, at 6:30pm, but get there no later than 6:15 for a good seat.
