Library to screen ‘Rose Marie’ next week

The Jamestown Community Theatre and the Jamestown Historical Society will present “Rose Marie” as part of its “Jamestown and the Silver Screen” series on Wednesday, April 13, at 6:45 p.m. at the Jamestown Philomenian Library.

The film stars Jeanette Mac- Donald and Nelson Eddy, who was born in Providence and grew up in Pawtucket. His father and stepmother lived in Jamestown.

“Rose Marie” was filmed in 1936 and runs 102 minutes. The movie is about a Canadian opera singer who learns that her beloved younger brother—played by Jimmy Stewart—has escaped prison, killed a mountie and is hiding in the backwoods. She attempts to reach him, and in the process is betrayed by the man who claims to know his whereabouts. She meets a handsome mountie, Sergeant Bruce, whose job it is to return her brother to prison.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the library at 423-7280.
