Girls’ Night Out: “Doctor Zhivago”
September 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Set during the Russian Revolution, Dr. Yuri Zhivago (Omar Sharif) is a young doctor who has been raised by his aunt and uncle following his father’s suicide. Yuri falls in love with beautiful Lara Guishar (Julie Christie), who has been having an affair with her mother’s lover, Victor Komarovsky (Rod Steiger), an unscrupulous businessman. Yuri, however, ends up marrying his cousin, Tonya (Geraldine Chaplin). But when he and Lara meet again years later, the spark of love reignites.
It won five Oscars in 1966, coming three years after Lean’s other lengthy Oscar-winning spectacle “Lawrence of Arabia,” which also featured Omar Sharif.
If you haven’t seen it on the big screen, this is your chance! Sharif, Christie and the snow-covered Russian countryside are gorgeous to look at! We’ll have tissues at the concession stand!
Your $10 ticket comes with a complimentary glass of wine.
Thurs. Sept. 19, 7 pm. Tickets $10 PG
