Fathom Events Presents Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

Mr. Smith Goes to WashingtonSee the classic on the big screen in local theaters.
We love the idea behind Fathom Events, to use local movie theaters to show performances—including classic movies, concerts, opera, and dance. Plus, there are no bad seats in the house!

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
The naïve Jeff Smith (James Stewart) is appointed as a U.S. Senator by a corrupt political party machine headed by the Governor, a publisher and Senator Paine (Claude Rains). Paine, hoping to keep Senator Smith from prying into a pending bill for an unnecessary but profitable dam, suggests to Smith that he sponsor a bill for his own pet project, a boys’ camp.

Meanwhile, Smith’s disillusioned secretary, Saunders (Jean Arthur), who is on Paine’s payroll, has fallen in love with Mr. Smith. She informs him that the dam and camp share the same land site! Shocked, Mr. Smith threatens Paine with exposure, but Paine tells the Senate that Smith owns the land. Mr. Smith fights back with a heroic one-man filibuster.

In Theaters October 14th and 17th
At AMC Van Ness, AMC Bay Street, and Century 9 San Francisco Centre
