JAMETSOWN – Reg Lenna Center for The Arts will show the Marx Brothers classic comedy, Room Service, Saturday, Oct. 3 at 8 p.m. to celebrate Groucho Marx’s 125th birthday weekend.
Lucille Ball and Ann Miller co-star with the Marx Brothers in a riotous romp about a cash-strapped theatrical troupe trying to nail down a backer for their new Broadway venture. The Marx Brothers attempt to put on a play before their landlord finds out that they have run out of money. To confuse the landlord, they pretend that the play’s author has contracted some terrible disease and can’t be moved. Originally a stage play, the setting shows it’s origins, but this is vintage Marx Brothers. Room Service is not rated and is 78 minutes long.
On Saturday, October 17 at 8 p.m., The Reg presents actor, Frank Ferrante in his live performance, An Evening with Groucho. Ticket buyers for this performance will receive a free pass to see Room Service .
