The Philadelphia Story at Cottage Road Cinema, Leeds 24 July 2024 Tickets from £7.00 — Book now

Master of comedy, George Cukor’s The Philadelphia Story gets an outing as part of Cottage Road Cinema’s Classics at the Cottage series this August. The 1940 film stars Katherine Hepburn as a rich woman who finds herself romantically caught up between her blue blood ex-husband (Cary Grant), her wealthy fiancé (John Howard), and the tabloid reporter (Jimmy Stewart) sent to cover her impending nuptials. A cornerstone and late example of the screwball comedy genre, Cukor’s all-star classic fizzes as you’d hope as the plot layers miscommunications and misunderstandings for the performers to get delightfully lost in.
