A double dose of Lombard laughs in Seattle this summer

Two Carole Lombard comedy favorites, both teaming her with Fred MacMurray, are among a six-pack of fun films to be shown this summer at the Seattle Art Museum under the title "For Laughing Out Loud."

"Hands Across The Table" will be shown July 10, with "True Confession" set for July 24. Other films in the series include "Theodora Goes Wild" July 17, "His Girl Friday" July 30 (note that's on a Wednesday, whereas the other movies are on Thursdays), "Too Many Husbands" on Aug. 7 and "Born Yesterday" Aug. 14. All films will run at 7:30 p.m., and there aren't very many better ways of sharing a summer evening than by watching a sophisticated comedy from classic Hollywood.

The entire package is available for $42 for museum members, $45 for adult non-members. A limited number of $8 day-of-event tickets may be available at 7:25 p.m. for $8, cash or check only.

The Seattle Art Museum is at 1300 First Avenue. For tickets, visit https://tickets.seattleartmuseum.org/public/auto_choose_ga.asp?area=31, or for more information, phone 206-654-3100.
