Queen's Film Theatre presents a Valentine's Day screening of the classic romance Roman Holiday (1953), starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.
Pop this holiday in your calendar and come celebrate 70 years of this cinema classic. Lovingly restored in stunning 4K, Roman Holiday features a legendary, Oscar-winning performance from Audrey Hepburn (in her first starring role) alongside Gregory Peck.
Nominated for a total of 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, it’s the story of a modern-day princess who, rebelling against her royal obligations, explores Rome on her own. She soon meets an American newspaperman (Gregory Peck) who pretends ignorance of her true identity, in the hopes of obtaining an exclusive story. Naturally, his plan falters as they inevitably fall in love.
Featuring Eddie Albert as a carefree cameraman pal, a classic Dalton Trumbo screenplay, expert direction from William Wyler, and featuring Edith Head’s Oscar-winning costumes, it’s a timeless romantic comedy considered to be one of the greatest films from the Golden Age of Hollywood.
