Catch one of the real classics of Hollywood history Sunday when the Florida Theatre screens It Happened One Night, the 1934 Clark Gable-Claudette Colbert romantic comedy.

The film took home the top five Academy Awards -- Best Picture, Best Actor (Gable), Best Actress (Claudette Colbert), Best Director (Frank Capra) and Best Adaptation (Robert Riskin) -- a record that stood for 41 years, until One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

The film stars Colbert as an heiress who turns her back on her fortune and Gable as a down-on-his-luck reporter.

It's part of a Summer Movie Classics series. Tickets are $5. Showtime is 2 p.m. Call (904) 355-2787 for tickets.
