Double-Feature! Story of a 3-Day Pass follows. One admission covers both shows!

director:
Stanley Kramer
cast:
Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, Sidney Poitier

Tracy and Hepburn star as a married couple whose daughter, played by Hepburn’s niece, surprises them with the news of her sudden marriage to an African-American man (Poitier). The famous premise and vivid supporting cast help make the film a time capsule of its moment. Plus, Tracy died just days after filming completed, and his scenes with Hepburn play like warm, gentle farewells.
