SOLD OUT: A Hepburn/Tracy Sparkling Wine Tasting

Be like Katharine Hepburn: join us at 5 PM (before the 6:45 PM evening screening) for a $5 sparkling wine tasting with expert Kris Blondin of Stink and El Tufo. Kris will introduce you to some sparklers for the holiday season, and you can pick up some great new bottles.

Then you can head into DESK SET, glass in hand, ready for all the office-party holiday fun with Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.

The 5 PM wine tasting with Kris Blondin is sold out. We're excited that this event is so popular and we anticipate programming more wine tastings in 2018. Cheers!

Reviews
A winning comedy that's as leisurely as the Eisenhower years, with just a hint of the rebellion that's coming down the pike.
James Plath, Movie Metropolis
One of the great Tracy-Hepburn pairings, this adaptation from the Broadway stage focuses on the love that grows from the contentious relationship...
