Free Marx Brothers Film Festival
Leads Up To
“Groucho: A Life in Revue”

The Cutler Majestic Theatre at Emerson College has announced a Marx Brothers Film Festival as a special preview leading up to its award-winning production of “Groucho: A Life in Revue,” starring Frank Ferrante.

Admission is free to patrons who come to any of the four screenings either dressed like a Marx Brothers character or bring a can of wholesome food to be donated to the Greater Boston Food Bank. Admission is also free to Emerson College Students with valid ID. Tickets for the screenings will NOT be available in advance.

A perfect introduction (or perhaps reconnection) to these comedic masters, the film screenings will be held on Saturday, September 25, at Bill Bordy Theater, 216 Tremont Street, (across the street from the Cutler Majestic in the Theatre District).

Screenings are as follows:

1:30 P.M. - “Animal Crackers” (1930)
3:30 P.M. - “Horse Feathers” (1932)
5:30 P.M. - “Duck Soup” (1933)
7:30 P.M. - “A Night At The Opera” (1935)

Following the screenings, guests will be invited to tour the Cutler Majestic Theatre at Emerson College, and may enter a raffle for complimentary theater tickets.

Variety has called “Groucho: A Life in Revue” "a tour de force performance." Original New York and London star Frank Ferrante will reprise his role playing Groucho from age 15 to 85 for five performances only, Wednesday, October 20 through Sunday, October 24.

Written by Arthur Marx and Robert Fisher, the award-winning, musical entertainment captures the Marx Brothers' outrageous verbal and physical humor, along with their their funniest songs, dialogue and ad-libs.
