Text Size

On Sunday, December 15, Newtown’s historic Edmond Town Hall Theatre will host screenings of The Shop Around the Corner from 1940, starting James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan.

Tickets are just $3 for any of the three shows — 1, 4, and 7 pm. For those with hearing impairment, the 1 pm matinee will be shown with captions.

The story is set just before Christmas in a shop in Budapest, pre-World War II. The head clerk (Stewart) doesn’t get along with his new clerk (Sullavan). Little do they know that they are also anonymous pen pals who are developing a deep fondness for one another. Things get interesting when they decide to meet in real life.

The Shop Around the Corner on December 15 will be the final classic film in the Someday Cinema Series this year, presented by Newtown Cultural Arts Commission.

Proceeds from the series go toward the Edmond Town Hall revitalization project. For more information, follow Someday Cinema Series on Facebook or visit edmondtownhall.org.

Director Ernst Lubitsch reportedly delayed the start of filming on until both James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan were available.
