Mr Smith goes to Washington

The Market Place Theatre in Armagh is continuing its series of classic film screenings on Thursday 4 July with Frank Capra’s ‘Mr Smith Goes To Washington’.

Jean Arthur, James Stewart and Claude Rains star in the award-winning 1939 classic about an idealistic, small town American senator who heads to Washington D.C. and suddenly finds himself single-handedly battling ruthless politicians out to destroy him. Receiving a total of eleven 1939 Oscar nominations [including Best Picture and Best Director], and winning one [Best Writing, Original Story], this classic is considered one of Capra’s, Stewart’s and Columbia’s finest films.

The Big Screen classics will continue through the summer and into the Autumn with ‘Ray’ on Saturday 10 August, the Oscar-winning biopic of the legendary blues, soul and jazz musician, Ray Charles.

Autumn titles will include ‘Singin’ In The Rain’, ‘Mary Queen Of Scots’ and more. Tickets for all screenings are priced £4.
