Next week, join streets.mn for the first ever “Night at the Movies.” The peerless Trylon Cinema in South Minneapolis is showing an absolute classic film about US suburbia — Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House — and we’re hosting a film and discussion evening.
If you’re not familiar with this landmark film, it’s a 1948 comedy starring Cary Grant and Myrna Loy (my personal fave) about a couple who move from the big city into the Connecticut suburbs. It was a cultural touchstone for the next decade during the rapid suburbanization of US cities, and we’re going to seize this opportunity to have a discussion about what Mr. Blandings Dream House can still tell us about urban landscapes today.
All you need to do is buy a ticket to the film at the Trylon Cinema for Tuesday, May 21st, at 7pm. After the movie, walk a block with us over to Du Nord Craft Spirits for a brief discussion and hangout after the film, where we’ll chat about the movie (and have a drink if you want).
