Please join us for Roman Holiday, the second film in season 6 of Lincoln Theater’s Classic Film Club celebrating the Legends & Lovers of Hollywood. We are pleased to be joined at each screening by film historian and CFC host, Jeannie MacDonald, for a pre-film introduction and post-screening talkback.

Audrey Hepburn earned a Best Actress Oscar in her first major screen role. Hepburn is luminous as Ann, a touring European princess who sneaks out of her hotel in Rome to explore the city on her own. American reporter Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck) befriends the runaway royal to score the scoop on her adventures – but their red-hot romance gets in the way. From acclaimed director William Wyler (The Best Years of Our Lives).

Running Time: 1 hour, 59 minutes
