Join us on our opening night for one of Hollywood’s most enduring classics, Billy Wilder’s Sunset Boulevard. William Holden plays Joe Gillis, a down-on-his-luck screenwriter who thinks he can squeeze an aging and forgotten silent star (Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond), but learns he’s getting much more than he bargained for. Wryly funny, with memorable performances and endlessly quotable dialogue, there’s a reason this film is widely regarded as the best movie about Hollywood ever made.
