See This: The Philadelphia Story at the Coolidge

Three's company.


Her marriage may have lasted longer than 72 days, but the divorcee in George Cukor’s 1940 classic The Philadelphia Story could surely relate to our modern Kardashian-level coverage of celebrity nuptials. Katharine Hepburn plays socialite Tracy Lord, who’s prepping for her big day with husband number two when her ex shows up with incognito tabloid reporters in tow, eager to get the scoop. As the bride-to-be’s plans begin to unravel, she must figure out her true feelings and turn the tables on her conniving company. Catch a star-studded cast that also includes Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart—in his lone Oscar-winning role—when the film screens as part of the Big-Screen Classics series at Coolidge Corner Theatre on June 6.  /  Brigitte Carreiro 

The Philadelphia Story screens at 7 pm on June 6 at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St., Brookline;
