Family Flicks: Bringing Up Baby

  • This is a past program

Get some quality time with the moms in your life for a movie and a meal this Mother's Day. See Bringing Up Baby on the big screen in the Hammer's Billy Wilder Theater and make your reservations for brunch at Lulu for a full afternoon of family friendly fun.

In Bringing Up Baby, Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn exude all the charm and wit of Hollywood’s Golden Age in this timeless screwball comedy directed by director Howard Hawks. Grant plays Dr. David Huxley, a serious-minded paleontologist who finds his orderly world turned upside down by Hepburn’s delightfully eccentric heiress. Their rat-a-tat-tat verbal jousting and equally dazzling instincts for physical gags makes this a perfect, family-friendly introduction to Hollywood’s Golden Age.

35mm, b/w, 102 min. Director: Howard Hawks. Screenwriter: Dudley Nichols, Hagar Wilde. Cast: Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Charlie Ruggles.
