Double Feature! New Year's Day with the Marx Brothers!
DUCK SOUP / THE COCOANUTS

All audience members can enter a drawing to win tickets to An Evening with Groucho at the Pasadena Playhouse.

DUCK SOUP
1933, Universal, 68 min, USA, Dir: Leo McCarey

Margaret Dumont appoints Groucho (Rufus T. Firefly) as prime minister of Freedonia, and he promptly declares war on a neighboring country for no particular reason. With the legendary mirror sequence and Harpo and Chico’s mercurial harassing of the lemonade vendor.


THE COCOANUTS
1929, Universal, 96 min, USA, Dir: Robert Florey, Joseph Santley

The Marx Brothers’ very first film finds Groucho trying to save his sinking-fast Florida hotel with the aid of Chico and Harpo, but things don’t go the way he planned (largely thanks to his two crazy helpers). Co-starring Kay Francis, Zeppo Marx and of course, Margaret Dumont.
