Stage Door

Play Trailer

Katharine Hepburn and Ginger Rogers lead a most impressive ensemble cast, including Lucille Ball, in this by turns hilarious and heart-wrenching dramedy about a set of young actresses living in a New York boarding house, all awaiting their big break. Nominated for four Oscars—including Best Director and Best Picture—Stage Door has aged ever-so gracefully; in our post-Me Too world, its message of sisterhood feels strikingly modern and resonant.

Globe and Mail Arts critic Kate Taylor will introduce the film.

"One of the great sassy-women comedy-dramas of the '30s."
