The CAPA Summer Movie Series continues this week with It Happened One Night (1934).  

Runaway socialite Ellie Andrews (Claudette Colbert) is en route to the Big Apple to elope with a fortune-hunting flyboy.  Along the way she meets a crusty newspaperman (Clark Gable), who's just been sacked and - unbeknownst to Ellie - plans to sell her story to get his job back.  But a string of zany  misadventures leads them to realize they're madly - if reluctantly - in love.  

Directed by Frank Capra, this film classic is screwball comedy at its best.  Colbert and Gable are perfectly matched as a headstrong heiress and a newspaperman who fight the battle of the sexes on a cross-country road trip.  This was the first film to win all five major Oscars - Best Picture, Director, Actor, Actress and Screenplay.

Check out this classic romantic comedy on Wednesday, June 9 and Thursday, June 10 at 7:30pm daily.
