7 from '37

What a happy coincidence that Paradise first opened its doors the same year, 1937, that so many remarkable films from the golden age of Hollywood were produced. In this nine-film series, we celebrate Oscar winning classics including The Awful Truth, Lost Horizon and A Star is Born (the original!), alongside rarely-screened gems like When You’re in Love and Topper. From the Gershwin-scored Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers musical Shall We Dance to Leo McCarey’s hard-hitting social realist drama Make Way for Tomorrow, 7 from 1937 has something for everyone to enjoy.
