Nostalgia, romance meet Valentine's Day at HART

COURTESY PHOTO - HART Theatre encourages people to come dressed in their best 40s attire for a Valentine Evening of Love and Classic Film Feb. 13 featuring snacks, door prizes and The Clock, a 1945 film starring Robert Walker and Judy Garland. HART Theatre, 527 E. Main Street, is kicking off its February festivities by featuring a night of nostalgia and romance with a special Valentine’s Evening of Love and Classic Film on Saturday, Feb. 13 at 7:30 p.m.

“The Clock,” a 1945 movie release directed by Vincente Minnelli and starring Judy Garland and Robert Walker, will be the featured film. While on a two-day military leave in New York City, soldier Joe Allen (Walker) meets secretary Alice Mayberry (Garland) when she trips over him. They hit it off, and Alice decides to show Joe around. As they tour the sights of New York, they begin to fall in love. The next morning, they decide they should get married before Joe returns to duty.

The evening will also feature live piano music in the theater lobby, a silent auction for gift baskets, raffles and door prizes. Chocolates, cookies, snacks, champagne and cider will be available for event-goers to indulge in. The event is a glimpse into mid-1940s life, so people are encouraged to arrive in their best vintage outfits.

Tickets are $15 for individuals and $25 for couples, and can be purchased online at hart-theatre.org. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. For more information, call 503-693-7815.
