Sullivan Travels to LACMA

Preston Sturges' funny, and surprisingly heartwarming screwball comedy Sullivan's Travels is playing at LACMA this Friday, July, 15 at 7:30 PM. The movie follows Sullivan (Joel McCrea), a disenchanted Hollywood director decides to leave light comedies behind for something more substantial. His new project: O Brother Where Art Thou?. (Yes, the Coen Brothers are big Sturges fans.) Sullivan decides to hit the road and live like a hobo in Depression-era America, and along comes Veronica Lake as his insanely beautiful companion. As if a newsboy cap and some ratty clothes could ever hide that stunning face...

Tickets are $10 general admission, $7 for seniors, students with ID, and museum members in the Bing Theatre 7/15 at LACMA (5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90036).
