Hitchcock or Hepburn Series: The Lion in Winter

12julHitchcock or Hepburn Series: The Lion in Winter

Event Details

Relive the intrigue and glamour of old Hollywood in this Hitchcock or Hepburn series of alternating thrillers and romances.

It’s Christmas 1183, and King Henry II (Peter O’Toole) is planning to announce his successor to the throne. The jockeying for the crown, though, is complex. Henry has three sons and wants his boy Prince John (Nigel Terry) to take over. Henry’s wife, Queen Eleanor (Katharine Hepburn), has other ideas. She believes their son Prince Richard (Anthony Hopkins) should be king. As the family and various schemers gather for the holiday, each tries to make the indecisive king choose their option. The Lion in Winter was nominated for seven Academy Awards, winning Best Actress (Katharine Hepburn), Best Writing, and Best Music: Original Score.

Admission is $5 for SCAD Card holders, non-SCAD students, children under the age of 15, seniors and military; and $8 for the general public.
