Screening: Anchors Aweigh

Members Only

Members, please join us for another Movie Night where we will screen Anchors Aweigh, staring Frank Sinatra, in one of his first main roles as an actor! This special evening will include an introduction by a Museum curator who will share stories of Sinatra’s Hollywood career and discuss the related artifacts in our Sinatra: An American Icon exhibit. 

This Academy Award winning picture for Best Music, Scoring of a Musical Picture in 1945, tells the story of two sailors on leave in Hollywood. Brash Joseph Brady (Gene Kelly) has promised his shy pal Clarence Doolittle (Frank Sinatra) that he will introduce Clarence to all the glamorous movie starlets whom he allegedly knows so well.
