Film Screening: The Taming of the Shrew

June 2 @ 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Join us for a FREE encore screening of the 1967 film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.

Baptista Minola (Michael Hordern) is attempting to marry off his two daughters; however, he will marry off his youngest, Bianca (Natasha Pyne) only if someone will marry his eldest, Katharina (Elizabeth Taylor). Katharina is an ill-tempered shrewish woman but a lusty young nobleman, Petruchio (Richard Burton), takes on the challenge of taming and marrying her. A subplot involves the wooing of Bianca by several suitors including handsome Lucentio (Michael York), foppish Hortensio (Victor Spinetti), and elderly Gremio (Alan Webb).

Open to all, no registration required.
