The Philadelphia Story

The impending wedding of socialite Tracy Lord (Katharine Hepburn) is disrupted by the arrival of two admirers—her rakish ex-husband (Cary Grant) and a reporter covering the ceremony (James Stewart).

After the screening, author Janny Scott (granddaughter of Helen Hope Montgomery Scott, the inspiration for Hepburn’s character) will answer questions and sign her new family memoir, The Beneficiary: Fortune, Misfortune, and the Story of My Father, sold on site by Main Point Books.
