Charlie Allnut (Humphrey Bogart) is the slovenly, drunkard captain of a steamer called The African Queen, which ships supplies to East African villages during World War I. Rose Sayer (Katherine Hepburn) is the prim sister of a British missionary. When invading Germans kill Rose's brother and destroy the village, Allnut offers to transport Rose back to civilization. She can't tolerate his drinking or gruff manner, and he can't stand her pious, judgmental attitude. Inevitably, this mismatched relationship turns to one of affection as they traverse the treacherous waters and devise an ingenious way to destroy a German gunboat.
The Valentine Theatre is proud to partner with the University of Toledo School of Visual and Performing Arts to present UT Movie Talks. Professor Holly Hey will share the history of "The African Queen," as well as fascinating insights into the making of the film. The UT Movie Talks will begin at 7:00 p.m. and conclude shortly before the the start of the film. Please join us to learn more about your favorite cinematic classics.
Tickets are general admission and are available for walk up purchase one hour before showtime.
