Back when she was an OC Mensan, Kit Hope (now in Metropolitan Washington Mensa) would put on a themed film festival at the turn of each year. In her honor, we are continuing her event each year on the Third Sunday of January.

We don't yet have a theme for the 2018 film festival. Please contact me with your ideas!

Peanuts, popcorn, candy, and soft drinks will be served all afternoon. Arrive when you like; leave when you like. No RSVP, no door charge.

Third Sunday, January 18th, 2015, Noon - 7:00 PM
The Second Annual Kit Hope Film Festival

The theme of this year's festival is Shirley, you jest. Showtimes and titles are:

      • 12:00 pm – 1:35 pmThe Bliss of Mrs. Blossom (1968; 1:35). A delightful comedy about a workaholic brassiere manufacturer, a lover in the attic, and the blissful Mrs. Blossom. You’ll never look at a bra (or an attic!) the same.
      • 2:00 pm – 4:10 pm: Being There (1979; 2:10). Chance, a simple gardener, has never left the estate until the old man dies. All he knows of the world comes from watching TV. He likes to watch.

      • 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm: Airplane! (1980; 1:28). Food poisoning strikes the passengers and crew of a 747. The only person capable of landing the plane is an ex-pilot who is afraid to fly. Don’t call him Shirley!

Peanuts, popcorn, candy, and soft drinks will be served all afternoon. Arrive when you like; leave when you like.

No RSVP, no door charge, and don't call me "Shirley"!
