The Hippodrome Cinema is proud to present "His Girl Friday" (1940) as part of our Cocktails & Classics series, for One-Night-Only on Friday, March 9. A Mojo-catered reception starts at 6:45 p.m., and the classic film screens at 7:45 p.m.
Walter Burns (Cary Grant) is a hard-boiled editor for The Morning Post who learns his ex-wife and former star reporter, Hildegard “Hildy” Johnson (Rosalind Russell), is about to marry bland insurance man Bruce Baldwin (Ralph Bellamy) and settle down to a quiet life as a wife and mother in Albany, New York. Walter determines to sabotage these plans, enticing the reluctant Hildy to cover one last story, the upcoming execution of convicted murderer Earl Williams.
During reception, grab a few drinks and some finger food, provided by Mojo, and enjoy the film at 7:45!
