Producer Chester Kent (James Cagney) struggles against time, romance, and a rival’s spy to produce spectacular live “prologues” for movie houses (directed and choreographed by Busby Berkeley).

Early birds will be treated to classic Looney Tunes shorts starting at 6:30 PM.

As an extra bonus, the 15-minute short film Daydreams of a Scarface Addict, directed by Scranton’s own Morris Mertz, will screen at 6:45 PM.

The Classic Pre-Code film series is being sponsored by The Friends of Scranton Public Library, who are also generously providing refreshments.

All screenings in the Pre-Code Classic Film Series are free with your library card, but seating is limited and registration is strongly suggested.
