PLEASE READ: Please arrive ON TIME. I cannot save seats for late comers. Meeting time is 7:20 pm and I will wait for people to gather for 10 minutes. If you are not at the meeting location by 7:30 pm, find yourself a seat and you can connect with the group after the show. Please understand that this is a public event in a public space that fills up fast - that is why I ask that you be there on time if you want to sit with the group. Please make sure you Google the location and know how to get there in advance.

As a reminder - rules of etiquette for my group are:

1. Please only RSVP if you actually intend to come to the event. Your RSVP means “yes, I will definitely be there.” If you are a “maybe,” please DO NOT RSVP.

2. If your plans change and you can no longer attend, click “cancel attendance” on top of the event page so someone else can take your spot.

3. InterNations consuls do not get paid - we volunteer our time, effort and energy to plan these events for you, so please treat us with the same respect you would a friend or family member - if you tell someone you will be there, that is your commitment - and if you’re a no-show, that reflects poorly on you and your character/manners.

4. No shows are no fun and if you are a consistent no-show, I will send you a message and ask you to refrain from RSVPing to any of my future events.

5. For these smaller events, please arrive ON TIME. I cannot hold space or save seats for late comers. I would like to be present with the other attendees and do not want to spend the whole time on my phone responding to late comers. Please respect the event hours and only RSVP if you can make it within a reasonable time frame of the event start time. Thank you!

The most popular of 13 films created by the legendary Marx Brothers, A Night at the Opera endures as one of the funniest comedies to ever appear on the silver screen. The straightforward plot—which follows the brothers as they try to launch the career of an aspiring Italian tenor—allows ample opportunity for their trademark hijinks, from the witty banter of the Contract Scene to the film’s raucous finale backstage at a performance of Verdi’s Il Trovatore. A co-presentation of the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Opera

Approximate running time: 1 hour 40 minutes

Summer HD Festival screenings will go on as scheduled in the case of rain but will be canceled in the event of thunder/lightning or high wind.

Optional: afterwards we can go somewhere nearby for a bite to eat or drinks.
