Film Fridays: South Florida Museum, 201 10th St. W., Bradenton
The South Florida Museum celebrates its 65th anniversary with a look back at the blockbusters filling Bradenton movie houses the year it opened. The Spring Film Series continues with the 1948 classic "A Foreign Affair." Billy Wilder, the brilliant filmmaker who would go on to make "Some Like it Hot," "The Seven Year Itch," "Sunset Blvd." and "The Apartment," delivers a pitch perfect satire featuring Jean Arthur as a congresswoman looking to eradicate the "moral malaria" caused by cabaret singer (Marlene Dietrich). Each movie is screened in the museum's all-digital Bishop Planetarium Theater.
Tickets: $5 (nonmembers); $3 (museum members). Information: 941-746-4131 or www.southfloridamuseum.org.SATURDAY
