Movie Day

Ball of Fire, 2 pm; Sergeant York, 4:30 pm. The Museum of the Moving Image is hosting a 39-feature retrospective on quintessential Hollywood director Howard Hawks. Ball of Fire tells the story of a group of ivory-tower lexicographers who realize they need to hear how real people talk as they begin working on a slang dictionary. They wind up helping a beautiful nightclub singer avoid police and escape from the mob. Released just months before Pearl Harbor, Sergeant York recounts the life story of a pacifist farmer (Gary Cooper) who gets drafted in World War I and becomes a celebrated war hero.www.movingimage.us.
