The 1935 Marx Brothers classic A Night at the Opera will be screened at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 1, at Studio Movie Grill at The Epicentre, 210 N. Tryon St.
Considered by many as the pinnacle of the Marx films, this uproarious effort finds Groucho (as Otis P. Driftwood), Chico and Harpo mixing it up behind the scenes of an opera house. Perennial foils Margaret Dumont and Sig Ruman are on hand, and classic bits include the stateroom scene and the discussion of the Sanity Clause ("You can't fool me; there ain't no Sanity Clause!").
Admission is $7.50, with all proceeds benefiting the Carolina Theatre Preservation Society. For tickets, go here.
