NewsTalk WHCU is partnering with Cinemapolis to present the Legends and Legacies Film Series. It continues Sunday, May 12th at 2 pm with the Academy Award-winning classic, South Pacific.
This hit film is based on the musical of the same name by Rogers and Hammerstein. South Pacific takes place during World War Two in the Pacific Theater.
The plot centers on a young American nurse stationed on a South Pacific Island, who falls in love with a middle-aged expatriate French plantation owner and his children. A secondary romance, between a U.S. lieutenant and a young Tonkinese woman, also pops up in the script.
Prior to the showing of South Pacific we will have two guest speakers for the occasion. Rod Howe from the Tompkins County Center for History & Culture and Diana Riesman of the Wharton Studio Museum.
General Admission tickets for this special event screening are just $10, with discounts for Seniors and Youth age 12 and under.
