Monday dinner sold out, Plaza Hotel movie Tuesday

July 24

Monday’s I’ll Have What She’s Having Dinner is sold out, but we have plenty of tickets for Tuesday’s showing of Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor’s Father’s Little Dividend.

The dinner is from 5 to 6:30 pm Monday, July 24 in the Foundation Room and precedes our 7 pm showing of Rob Reiner’s When Harry Met Sally in the Plaza Theatre. While the dinner is sold out, tickets for the movie are $8, available at the box office or at Ticketmaster.com.

EPCC mass communications professor Lisa Elliott, a member of the PCFF program advisory committee, will give a free lecture about a movie from 6-6:30 pm in the Philanthropy Theatre.

For the second straight year, the La Perla Patio Bar atop the Plaza Hotel Pioneer Park turns into an outdoor movie venue with our showing of Father’s Little Dividend at 7:30 pm Tuesday. La Perla is the former penthouse of what once was the Hilton Hotel. It’s where Elizabeth Taylor lived during her brief marriage to Conrad “Nicky” Hilton Jr.

Father’s Little Dividend, released in 1951, is the sequel to 1950’s Father of the Bride, which we showed to a sold-out crowd last year at La Perla. It stars Spencer Tracy as Stanley Banks, who must comes to terms with the prospect of becoming a grandfather, much as he had to get used to the idea of his daughter (Taylor) getting married in the first movie.

Tickets are $50, on sale here..
