March 8 – 11, 2012, at the Egyptian Theatre
So many wonderful things have regrettably disappeared from pictures today, but perhaps the most baffling is the comedy team. Practically de rigueur from the 1930s to the 1950s, true comedy teams have become all but extinct from movie screens since the Eisenhower administration. To celebrate that golden age of hilarity, we present for your big-screen pleasure the best comedic quartet in film history: the Marx Brothers! Included in our heartily hilarious series are MONKEY BUSINESS, A NIGHT AT THE OPERA, THE BIG STORE, A DAY AT THE RACES, ROOM SERVICE, ANIMAL CRACKERS, DUCK SOUP and THE COCOANUTS.
Because Marx Brothers movies were meant to be seen in theaters with an audience, their immaculate timing isn’t done justice when screened at home on DVD. Indulge in an all-you-can-laugh riot, and be sure to bring the whole family!
