Series: Cinema Classics
For our December Cinema Classics screenings, we celebrate the Holiday spirit with a new restoration of THE BISHOP’S WIFE. The screening on 12/1 is free for Hollywood Theatre members.
THE BISHOP’S WIFE (1947): As Christmas approaches, Bishop Brougham (David Niven) finds his life in tatters. He can’t raise the funds for a new cathedral, and his wife (Loretta Young) seems to be losing faith in their marriage. Enter Dudley (Cary Grant), an angel who has been sent down in answer to the prelate’s prayers—but is this divine being getting a little too close to the bishop’s wife?
Scripted in part by Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett, and nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture, THE BISHOP’S WIFE is a charming fantasy-comedy classic.
Guest Passes and Member Guest Passes accepted.
