Looking for something fun to do Christmas Day? Come to JMM to enjoy a film, fortune cookies and film-fare-favorite – popcorn! We will be screening “The Glass Menagerie” (1987) based on the Tennessee Williams play of the same title, directed by Paul Newman and starring Joanne Woodward and John Malkovich.
Film will be shown at 1:00 pm; running time: 2hrs. 4mins. Free with museum admission.
The Glass Menagerie Synopsis: A son, Tom Wingfield, longs to escape from his stifling home, where his genteel mother worries about the future prospects of his lame, shy sister. Tom invites a friend to dinner, raising the hope that a romantic match for his sister is possible.
Film offered in connection with the current special exhibit, Once & Again: Still Lifes by Beth Lipman, on display at the Jewish Museum Milwaukee through January 8, 2017.
