MONDAY MOVIE MATINEE: Midnight (1939) Free film screening and discussion with film critic Carrie Rickey, in person at The Athenaeum of Philadelphia
Midnight (1939, 1hr 34 mins)
When out-of-work showgirl Eve (Claudette Colbert) arrives in Paris with no work in sight, she asks taxi driver Tibor (Don Ameche) to drive her from club to club. But the more time she spends with Tibor, the more Eve realizes that he is falling for her. Unwilling to accept his feelings, Eve escapes to a charity concert, meets the charming Georges (John Barrymore) and disguises herself as a Hungarian baroness. But love-struck Tibor is not willing to let Eve go without a fight.
Movies will be shown in their entirety, followed by a discussion. The Athenaeum will update attendees on any Covid protocols they need to be aware of before the event.
