Event Description:
This 1967 Classic that breezily presents the question of Interracial marriage and resoundingly supports it because love "knows no race" was a huge hit in the late 60's. It holds up well today even if racial tensions have improved since it's release, it is important to reflect that it wasn't that long ago that interracial marriage was illegal in many states. When Joanna Drayton (Katharine Houghton), a free-thinking white woman, and black doctor John Prentice (Sidney Poitier) become engaged, they travel to San Francisco to meet her parents. Matt Drayton (Spencer Tracy) and his wife Christina (Katharine Hepburn) are wealthy liberals who must confront the latent racism the coming marriage arouses. Also attending the Draytons' dinner are Prentice's parents (Roy E. Glenn Sr., Beah Richards), who vehemently disapprove of the relationship. Join us and see the last film that Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy made together. Directed by Stanley Kramer Tickets are $5 and Doors open at 6:30. Sponsored by High Noon Solar
