During the 1950s, a female director was determined to show Hollywood that women deserved roles in front of and behind the camera. To prove it, Ida Lupino directed and acted in the 1953 drama noir, The Bigamist. The movie tells the story of Phyllis, the secret wife of a businessman (played by well-known character actor Edmond O’Brien), who attempts to hide her and her child from his first spouse. Celebrate Lupino’s legacy at this special 35mm screening; a portion of proceeds benefits Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains. Mon 7:30 p.m.
