Secret Cinema at Glen Foerd: Thanks a Million
Jul 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join The Secret Cinema for a special screening of the 1935 film Thanks A Million presented in real, live 16mm film projection! Thanks A Million is a hybrid of political satire and musical comedy about a big band singer (Dick Powell) who is reluctantly recruited as an outsider candidate in the Pennsylvania gubernatorial election. The film is aided by a witty script from Nunnally Johnson, a top cast of ’30s co-stars and character actors (Ann Dvorak, Fred Allen, Raymond Walburn, Patsy Kelly), and guest musical numbers from the Yacht Club Boys and “King of Jazz” Paul Whiteman. The feature film will follow a selection of surprise shorts from the era. Glen Foerd on the Delaware is a 5-minute walk from the Torresdale station of SEPTA’s Trenton Regional Rail Line or bus routes 19 and 84. There is ample free parking within the estate. The Mansion opens at 7pm for visitors to explore. Screening starts in the Drawing Room at 8pm. Admission is $10; tickets are available in advance and at the door. This screening will take place in the run-up to Glen Foerd’s Deco on the Delaware event (formerly Jazz Age on the Delaware) on 8/4, a f te and fundraiser celebrating the music and culture of the Jazz Age.
