About the Program

Step back in time and experience the magic of Hollywood's Golden Age with an outdoor screening of the timeless classic Roman Holiday! Audrey Hepburn makes her Oscar-winning debut as Princess Ann. Overwhelmed by her suffocating schedule, she takes off for a night and finds herself playing hooky on the streets of Rome with a charming reporter (Gregory Peck). 

Directed by William Wyler. (1953, 118 min. No MPAA Rating.)

Arrive early to view the exhibitions! This unforgettable film, penned by Blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo, is the perfect complement to the exhibition Blacklist: The Hollywood Red Scare. And don't miss Peter Krasnow: Breathing Joy and Light and Visions and Values while you're here.
