Guess Who's Coming to Dinner - Feb 3

We're celebrating Black History Month with a special Film Series at the Sunrise Theater!

Thursday, February 3 at 7pm come watch the 1967 film Guess Who's Coming to Dinner starring Spencer Tracy, Sidney Poitier, and Katharine Hepburn.

Tickets Coming Soon!

When Joanna Drayton, a free-thinking white woman, and black doctor John Prentice become engaged, they travel to San Francisco to meet her parents. Matt Drayton and his wife Christina are wealthy liberals who must confront the latent racism the coming marriage arouses. Also attending the Draytons' dinner are Prentice's parents, who vehemently disapprove of the relationship.

The film was groundbreaking because it was the first film of the era to cast a positive light on an inter-racial marriage. The film was also controversial; inter-racial marriage had been illegal in most of the United States until only a few weeks before its release, when, in June 1967, anti-miscegenation laws that promoted racial segregation were declared illegal by the Supreme Court. This timing made the film incredibly relevant to its audience.
