It's the 90th anniversary of this Grand Illusion favorite, and April marks the 20th anniversary of our cinema becoming a volunteer-operated nonprofit. Come join us in celebration of these two milestones!

THE THIN MAN tells the story of retired detective Nick Charles (William Powell) who, while spending much of his time managing his wife Nora's considerable fortune and consuming quantities of alcohol, is asked to follow the trail of a missing inventor. Although reluctant to interrupt his holiday in Manhattan, he is persuaded to investigate by Nora's (Myrna Loy) craving for adventure, and together they embark upon a case that leads to the disclosure of deception and murder.
