Join us for a Marx Brothers Double Header, favorites of our Film Chair, John Dreyfus.

Films shown back-to-back with a brief intermission. Come for one or both.

At the Circus
Directed by Edward Buzzell
USA, 1939, 87 min
At the Circus, the ninth Marx Brothers film, was produced by MGM studios in 1939. J. Cheever Loophole (Groucho), Tony
(Chico) and Punchy (Harpo) save a circus from bankruptcy. The film includes Grouchos classic rendition of Lydia the Tattooed Lady. The climax of the film is the Marx Brothers finest. Film Daily wrote, The mad Marxmen have never been funnier, nor have they had a better story in which to cavort. Supporting cast members include the unflappable Margaret Dumont and Eve Arden.

Duck Soup
Directed by Leo McCarey
USA, 1933, 70 min
Duck Soup, the fifth Marx Brothers film, is ranked as the fifth greatest comedy of all time by the American Film Institute. It is now widely considered among critics to be a masterpiece of comedy and the Marx Brothers finest film. Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho) as the Leader of Freedonia, enlists the help of Chicilini (Chico) and Pinky (Harpo) to declare war over Sylvania in hopes of winning the love of wealthy Mrs. Teasdale, played by Margaret Dumont.

Dress up as your favorite Marx Brothers character for free admission.
