Bess Street Aldrich Foundation is recreating a bit of Hollywood history on Saturday (2/16) when it brings the film “Cheers for Miss Bishop” back to the big screen in the same theater where it premiered in January of 1941.
The former Stuart Theatre, now restored as Rococo Theatre, was the site of the premiere, and will be the site of a benefit for the Aldrich Foundation. A welcome reception with complimentary light refreshments will begin at 1:30pm and the film, which went on to open at Radio City Music Hall and nationwide, will be shown at 2:30pm. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door.
The Cassgram said the film, based on the novel Miss Bishop by Nebraska author Bess Streeter Aldrich, was partially filmed on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus and in Waverly.
