Program Description

Event Details

For the month of June, we will be watching movies starring Gene Tierney.  Tierney made a name for herself in the 1940s playing the lead female role in every genre of the time.  These are widely regarded as three of her best.

On this night, we are watching Ernst Lubitsch's 1943 film "Heaven Can Wait" also starring Don Ameche and Charles Coburn.

Spoiled playboy Henry van Cleve dies and arrives at the entrance to Hell.  Satan, however, isn't so sure Henry meets Hell's standards.
