As Old Greenbelt Theatre enters its 80th year, we’re celebrating by looking back at some of the great films watched here by Greenbelters 80 years ago! All in 35mm, all free! This is part of our “Films for a Better Tomorrow” series sponsored by Colorlab

Longfellow Deeds (Gary Cooper), a resident of small-town Vermont, leads a simple life until he inherits a vast fortune from a late uncle. Soon, unscrupulous lawyer John Cedar (Douglas Dumbrille) brings Deeds to New York City, where the unassuming heir is the object of much media attention. When wily reporter Babe Bennett (Jean Arthur) gains the trust and affection of Deeds, she uses her position to publish condescending articles about him — but are her feelings for him really that shallow?
