Roman Holiday (1953) – G – Directed by William Wyler. Starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.

“When you say ‘They don’t make movies like that anymore,’ you’re really talking about this film.” – TV Guide

Often considered one of the first truly great romantic comedies, Roman Holiday introduced Audrey Hepburn to audiences as a modern-day European princess. Stifled by her royal entourage on a trip to Rome, Princess Ann (Hepburn) escapes to explore the Italian city of lights on her own. While incognito, she falls in love with an American newspaperman, Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck). When Bradley learns of Ann’s true identity, he finds himself torn between following his nose for news and cashing in on the sensational story, or indulging the growing affections of his heart.

Bring your own lawn chairs or blankets. No fixed seating is available.
