Theatre On Screen: Barrymore

Lake Placid Center for the Arts to hold film screening of "Barrymore" followed by a special 'Making Of' Documentary.
Set in 1942, and starring Academy-Award Winner Christopher Plummer, Barrymore follows acclaimed American actor John Barrymore, a member of one of Hollywood's most well-known multi-generational theatrical dynasties. No longer a leading box office star, the film finds Barrymore reckoning with the ravages of his life of excess. He has rented a grand, old theatre to rehearse for a backer's audition to raise money for a revival of his 1920 Broadway triumph in Richard III. It leads him to look back on the highs and lows of his stunning career and remarkable life. Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 LPCA members, and $10 students 18 and under.
