Celebrate Marx Bros Films at Groucho's Garden Party

Share your goofy side with other Marx Brothers fans this Friday at Groucho's Garden Party, followed by a screening of a Marx Brothers' classic, The Cocoanuts.

Celebrate Marx Bros Films at Groucho's Garden Party

Share your goofy side with other Marx Brothers fans this Friday at Groucho’s Garden Party at CIA, followed by a screening of The Cocoanuts. The pre-film party launches the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque’s seven-film Marx Brothers series, “No Sanity Clause: The Crazy Comedy of the Marx Brothers.”

Join us for Groucho’s Garden Party in CIA’s outdoor courtyard on Friday, July 9 at 6pm, then move inside for the film at 7:30. You’re encouraged to come as Groucho (all you need are painted eyebrows and mustache, spectacles, and perhaps a head covering) and you can also deface your face at the party - we’ll supply the face paint. Enjoy Marx Brothers-themed refreshments (animal crackers, lemonade, tutti-frutti ice cream) and live music by xylophonist Mell Csicsila.

The Cocoanuts (1929) is an adaptation of the Marx Brothers’ 1925 Broadway hit. Shot at Paramount’s Astoria Studios in Queens, this early talkie takes place largely in the lobby of a Florida hotel during a local land boom. The Marxes’ peerless shtick includes the classic “viaduct” routine.

Admission to the party (which includes a ticket to The Cocoanuts) is only $10; members, CIA students/staff, and kids 12 & under $8. Film-only tickets can also be purchased. Info at cia.edu/cinematheque.

Silver Anniversary Celebration: The Cinematheque is marking its 25th anniversary year from July 2010 to August 2011. Keep reading the Cinematheque blog to find out how we’re celebrating!
