FilmSoc Week 12: Sullivan's Travels ~ Free Pizza + Pub Outing!
21 October, 2016
Brown Theatre, Electrical Engineering and Shaw Davey Slum (171-175 Elgin St) after
A big thank you to everyone who showed up throughout the year and all those who made our collaborative events such a success! Hope you all are ready for one last afternoon of film and pizza! For our final screening of the semester, we will be screening the comedy:
SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS (Surges, 1941)
John L. Sullivan, a well-known Hollywood director of comedies, is dissatisfied with his success. He decides to film a more serious movie that is based off a socially conscious novel, so he dresses himself as a hobo in order to experience the true life of living in poverty, but he finds himself in more trouble than expected when he loses his memory and is sentenced to labor camp.
Sullivan’s Travels, an American comedy film released in 1941, stars Joel McCrea and Veronica Lake and in 1990, was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE: After the screening at ~4pm, we'll be heading down to the Shaw Davey Slum (5 mins walk from uni) for FREE BEER/CIDER & CHIPS and a chat about the film and films in general - just follow the committee after the screening!
**Note that this event is FREE FOR EVERYONE! You DO NOT have to be a member, so please invite all your friends and click attending!**
As usual, there will be FREE pizza and drinks provided! Remember to click going so we can order enough pizzas for everyone!
