Monday Afternoon Movie: The Duke

Monday August 22, 2022
12:00 PM until 2:00 PM


Join us one Monday afternoon a month for new and old favorites, and watch the film in the comfort of our air conditioned Sky Room.  We'll have snacks and drinks available, and attendees are welcome to bring their own as well.

This month we're showing a comedy based on real-life events, The Duke, starring Helen Mirren & Jim Broadbent

In 1961, Kempton Bunton, a 60-year old taxi driver, stole Goya's portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. It was the first (and remains the only) theft in the Gallery's history. Kempton sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly -- he had long campaigned for pensioners to receive free television. What happened next became the stuff of legend.
