A snappy summer film series
Did you know that every summer, Seattle Art Museum celebrates screwball comedy with a film series? And that this year’s series features the all-star lineup of “Trouble in Paradise,” “It Happened One Night,” “Twentieth Century,” “The Awful Truth,” “Ball of Fire,” and “The Solid Gold Cadillac,” featuring the likes of Barbara Stanwyck, Carole Lombard, Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert and Cary Grant? And that all of them screen in 35mm? And that a six-film series pass is just $45 ($42 if you’re a SAM, SIFF, NWFF or TheFilmSchool member)? Now you know. The series begins July 11 and continues through August 15 on Thursday nights; tickets are on sale now at Seattle Art Museum’s website. Laughter is guaranteed.
