This year the Tivoli Theater in St Louis will turn 90 years old. Cinema St Louis is marking the occasion with a May 25th showing of Meet Me in St Louis (1944), which itself is turning 70.
I won’t be able to make it myself, as THAT’S THE DAY OF MY WEDDING!!! But to those St. Louisans who aren’t attending the biggest bash of the year, this might be the next best thing.
Here’s the notice from Cinema St Louis. And hey, while you’re at it, give ’em a Like on Facebook.
On May 24, 2014, the Tivoli officially turns 90 years old. Accordingly, on May 25th, 2014, they will celebrate this milestone in a cinematic way, by showing MEET ME IN ST LOUIS (1944; this year marks 70 since its release).
This film, being of special importance to the city of St. Louis (which turns 250 this year), was deemed the most appropriate film to play. Starring Judy Garland, Mary Astor, Margaret O’Brien and many others, the film centers on the 1904 World’s Fair held in St. Louis (this year also marks the 100th year since that landmark event). This special confluence of anniversaries is of sufficient import to warrant a huge event!
Come Celebrate the Tivoli!
