Historic Film Club screens Sullivan's Travels, FREE!
7:00 PM
Northwest Montana History Museum
The Historic Film Club at the Northwest Montana History Museum returns on Tuesday, November 24, with the 1941 comedy Sullivan's Travels!

John L. Sullivan (Joel McCrae) is a profitable and successful director of screwball comedies, but is aiming higher - he wants to direct acclaimed dramas. In order to truly embrace his destiny, Sullivan goes undercover as a tramp, running headlong into a host of complications to his plan (including Veronica Lake). Though searching for serious drama, Sullivan finds only a comedy of errors.

The film that "Sully" is trying to produce within the movie is called O Brother, Where Art Thou?. The Coen Brothers apparently like this title so much that they borrowed it for their own film that was released in the year 2000.

TO ADDRESS COVID 19 - We are taking several precautions to make sure that a Museum visit during these uncertain times will not adversely effect the health of our visitors:
All public fixtures in the Museum (hand rails, door knobs, bathroom components, interactive exhibits) will be regularly and repeatedly sanitized on a daily basis
As per the Governor's mandate, facemasks will be required when social-distancing is not possible.
To further promote social-distancing, seats in the Swanburg Classroom will be spaced apart at six foot intervals, and there will unfortunately be no free popcorn provided for the film club until further notice.

Of course, everyone is always welcome at the Northwest Montana History Museum. However, if you have a cough, a fever, or are just feeling under the weather, we kindly ask that you visit us some other time; not only for your own health, but for the well-being of our staff and other supporters.

There is no charge for the film, and donations will be accepted to help defray the cost of showing the films. The movie is free; wine, beer, pop and water will be for sale. Seating is provided, but film fans can bring their own floor pillows, portable chairs, or whatever is comfortable for viewing the film.
