View the award winning film on a giant screen. Joe Myers of the Connecticut Post will be host for this special presentation.

Winner of five 1960 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, “The Apartment” is legendary writer/director Billy Wilder at his scathing, satirical best, and one of “the finest comedies Hollywood has turned out” (Newsweek). C.C. “Bud” Baxter (Jack Lemmon) knows the way to success in’s through the door of his apartment! By providing a perfect hideaway for philandering bosses, the ambitious young employee reaps a series of undeserved promotions. But when Bud lends the key to big boss J.D. Sheldrake (Fred MacMurray), he not only advances his career, but his own love life as well. For Sheldrake’s mistress is the lovely Fran Kubelik (Shirley MacLaine), elevator girl and angel of Bud’s dreams. Convinced that he is the only man for Fran, Bud must make the most important executive decision of his career: lose the girl...or his job.

The other films in the series will be:

Jan. 30: “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.”

Feb. 13: “Anatomy of a Murder,” hosted by Joe Myers.

Feb. 27: “It Happened One Night.”
