The original film adaptation of Patrick Dennis' 1955 book Auntie Mame returns to the big screen at OutFest's annual presentation of the timeless screen gem. A riches-to-rags (then back to riches) tale starring the fast-talking Rosalind Russell, Auntie Mame is packed with outlandish interior décor, flashy costumes, extraordinary personae, and plot twists with more punch than Mame's famed bootleg martinis. Russell's portrayal of the zany dame garnered her an Academy Award nomination, as well as a Golden Globe for Best Actress.

Egyptian Theatre says…

Co-presented by Outfest: Auntie Mame, 1958, Warner Bros., 143 min. Dir. Morton DaCosta. Rosalind Russell is in fine form as the jet-setting, Park Avenue aunt who suddenly becomes guardian to her young nephew. Free-spirited Mame takes the boy on irreverent escapades through the bohemian 1920s, the ravages of the Great Depression, the trials of her many loves and her plea for social justice. "Live! Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!"- Auntie Mame. Pre-screening reception from 6:30-7:30 PM, sponsored by Absolut Vodka.
