Where: Paramount Theater
Join us for a casual pre-show screening of The Three Stooges“Disorder In The Court” beginning at 1:45PM!
This classic crime comedy depicts two young New Yorker students, Billy Gambini (Ralph Macchio) and Stan Rothenstein (Mitchell Whitfield), as the travel through rural Alabama and then are put on trial for a murder they did not commit. Vincent Gambini, a cousin of one friend is a newly minted lawyer, and is hired to defend them. Much of the ensuing humor comes from the contrasting personalities of the brash Italian-American New Yorkers, Vinny and his fiancée Mona Lisa, and the reserved Southern townspeople of the small rural town.
Lawyers have praised the comedy’s realistic depiction of courtroom procedure and trial strategy. Starring Joe Pesci, Fred Gwynne and Marisa Tomei, My Cousin Vinny’s stars received critical praise for their performances, with Tomei winning the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
