Paul Muni earned a well-deserved Best Actor Oscar nomination for his performance as a down-on-his-luck World War I veteran who faces inhumane conditions when he is sentenced to hard labor at a prison camp.
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.
The Pre-Code Classic film series will continue throughout April on Thursdays at 7 PM in the Community Room (basement of Lackawanna County Children’s Library).
