Cerrito Classics presenting Hepburn and Tracy in Adam’s Rib

The screen chemistry of Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy are on full display in the 1949 film “Adam’s Rib,” directed by George Cukor.

The film will be presented on the big screen at 7 p.m. Nov. 8 at the Rialto Cinemas Cerrito, 10070 San Pablo Ave., as part of the Cerrito Classics series.

“To my mind, Tracy-Hepburn’s best, and an Oscar-winning screenplay by another couple, Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin,” writes Linda Moss of Friends of the Cerrito Theater. “It’s all about the battle of the sexes, and in a very modern way.”

Judy Holliday plays the defendant in the comedy, which has the two headliners playing married attorneys who are handling opposite sides of the case.

Seats are $8 each available at the box office or online at rialto cinemas.com.
