Cinema Close to Home: Duchess of Idaho

Step out of the summer heat and watch a movie with us!

Ellen Hallet is in love with her playboy boss, Douglas Morrison, but too timid to do anything about it. Her roommate Chris devises a plan to help her: she follows Morrison on his trip to Sun Valley, Idaho and plays the overattentive female, hoping he’ll send for Ellen, who often plays his “fiancée” when he has a lady he can’t discourage otherwise. But complications arise when the band leader at Sun Valley Lodge, Dick Layn, catches Chris’ eye. Will Ellen and Chris find love, or will their plan backfire and bring heartache instead?

This event is free and open to the public. No registration is required.
