Lincoln Theater's Classic Film Club: The African Queen (1951)



Lincoln Theater's Classic Film Club, in its inaugural season, is offering film buffs a unique opportunity to choose and see great classic films from the 20s to the 80s, the way they were intended to be viewed...on the big screen.

Adapted from a novel by C.S. Forester, The African Queen stars Humphrey Bogart in his Oscar-winning portrayal of Charlie Allnut, the slovenly, gin-swilling captain of a tramp steamer called the African Queen, which ships supplies to small East African villages during World War I.

Katharine Hepburn plays Rose Sayer, the maiden-lady sister of a prim British missionary, Rev. Samuel Sayer (Robert Morley). When Germans invade and Samuel dies, Allnut offers to take Rose back to civilization. She can't tolerate his drinking or bad manners; he isn't crazy about her imperious, judgmental attitude. However it does not take long before their passionate dislike turns to love. Together the disparate duo work to ensure their survival on the treacherous waters and devise an ingenious way to destroy a German gunboat.



Running time: 1 hour, 45 minutes. Doors open one hour before the screening.

Tickets: Free for club members with club card / $8 Adult / $6 LT member
