(1949, dir. Michael Curtiz, w/ Joan Crawford, Zachary Scott, David Brian, Sydney Greenstreet)
Flamingo Road will start at approximately 9:17pm, and finish at approximately 10:57pm.
A scandalously entertaining melodrama in which Crawford portrays a carnival dancer who intrigues Scott and Brian in a small Southern town where the carnival stops.
