Brunch with Oscar IS BACK!

Starting Sunday, February 1, and continuing every Sunday this February, Civic Theatre of Allentown will celebrate the Academy Awards by hosting its third annual ‘Brunch with Oscar’ film series.

This year, the Sunday morning screenings showcase four different films: It Happened One Night (1935), The Sting (1974), One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1976), West Side Story (1962), each of which had success at the Academy Awards.

Before the film screenings, a light complimentary breakfast will be served, featuring foods that reflect the film to be shown. We think this will be a chance to celebrate these films in a fun, different way.

The series kicked off last year with a salute to Award-Winning performances. This year, the focus is on Best Director.

Shakespeare’s most outrageous comedy, “The Taming of the Shrew” introduces one of theatre’s great screwball double-acts, a couple hell-bent on confusing and outwitting each other right up to the play’s equivocal and controversial conclusion.
