FRIENDS OF THE DEVEREAUX LIBRARY AND THE ELKS THEATRE PRESENT
IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT
Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert star in this week's Nostalgia Night 2000 – the second film of the Friends of the Devereaux Library Film Series. The legendary romantic comedy, It Happened One Night, will be shown at the Elks Theatre Sunday, January 16 at 6: 00 pm. The film is sponsored by Brink Electric Construction Company and the SDSM& T Foundation.
This enchanting 1934 classic, directed by film legend Frank Capra, paired Colbert and Gable for the first time. Never projected to be a top contender in the movie world, the film was a pleasant surprise as it swept the nation and became both a financial and critical success. It Happened One Night was the first film to ever sweep the top five Academy Awards for best picture, director, actor, actress, and screenplay.
It Happened One Night is the second in a series of 10 films to be presented by the Friends of the Devereaux Library and the Elks Theatre. Films will be shown each Sunday evening at 6: 00 p. m. Ticket booklets for the entire series are available at the Elks Theatre and the Devereaux Library at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. Individual admission to movies will be available on a space available basis at the door.
