The Cat and the Canary
When an eccentric family meets in their millionaire uncle's remote, decaying mansion on the 10th anniversary of his death for the reading of his will, murder and madness follow.
Directed by Elliott Nugent, this American horror comedy is a remake of the 1927 silent film The Cat and the Canary, and stars Bob Hope, Paulette Goddard, John Beal, and Douglass Montgomery as part of the millionaire’s surviving family.
Join us for a night of spooky revelry! The festivities begin at 5:00 p.m. with a special happy hour, followed by a murder mystery party (produced by The Murder Mystery Company) and then the film’s screening.
Tickets are $10, and preregistration is required. For questions, please contact 504.528.1944 x 484.
This program is funded in part by the Bob and Delores Hope Foundation.
The special exhibit So Ready for Laughter: The Legacy of Bob Hope is on view in the Joe W. and Dorothy D. Brown Foundation Special Exhibit Gallery through February 10, 2019.
