Lake Geneva Film Club presents Sunset Boulevard (1950)
Wednesday, August 14, 2019, 7:00 p.m.
Pre-Movie cocktails and festivities at Baker House, 327 Wrigley Dr., Lake Geneva, begin at 5:00 p.m.
Lake Geneva Film Club is screening Billy Wilder’s 1950 film-noir classic Sunset Boulevard. Failing screenplay writer Joe Gillis has become the gigolo of former silent movie star Norma Desmond, but when he falls in love with a young aspiring writer, jealously drives Desmond insane and her madness leads to tragedy. Critics hail Gloria Swanson’s portrayal of Desmond as the finest acting of her career. If you’ve never seen this movie, the big screen is exactly how you should experience this film noir!
A $10 donation is suggested to the Never Say Never Playland Project, an inclusive playground to be built in Lake Geneva for people with special needs and disabilities.
