ALTON — Oscar Night at the Movies on Friday, January 3 at 7 p.m. at the Gilman Library will feature the 1952 film ''Room for One More.''
When it comes to children, three's a crowd for city engineer Poppy Rose. But for his wife, Anna, three is just a beginning. She wants to add to their brood of three kids, legion of cats, scruffy stray dog, and whatever else comes their way by becoming foster parents of one, then another, troubled youth.
With his charm, offhand wit and impeccable timing always in play, screen icon Cary Grant shines as Poppy in this "warmhearted, thoroughly engaging domestic comedy". Opposite him as Anna is Betsy Drake, turning her real-life marriage to Grant into real screen chemistry.
Admission is free. All are welcome. Refreshments will be served.
Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult.
