(1934, dir. W.S. Van Dyke, 91 mins., NR)
Sipping martinis like water and trading one-liner’s like a game of hot potato, Nick and Nora Charles (William Powell and Myrna Loy) will have you rolling in this light-hearted whodunit. Egged-on by Nora, former detective Nick comes out of retirement to find missing inventor and suspected murderer, Clyde Wynant. Shot in a mere two weeks, the film was so successful it launched a series of six films over the next 13 years.

Please note: The Thin Man will be screened in DVD.
