What you should know

  • Saturday 1st January at 3 p.m.
  • Aero Theater in Santa Monica (vaccinated performance)
  • $ 13 general, $ 8 member

While we don’t want a New Year’s calendar that is perfectly fresh and full of aspiration to be gross, we probably long for it to be full of yuks.

As in the kind of spirited laughter and happy intoxication that give our daily life pizzazz and our sadly cheeky worlds cheeky, a nice flavor that makes everything we experience a little happier.

The Marx Brothers have been supplying this beautiful spice for over a century.

Because any disgust can turn into disgust when a Marx Brothers film flickers across the big screen and delivers pointed satirical observations, witty side dishes and all that polished physical comedy.

Yuks galore, that’s what the family’s fun makers offer, and the audience has adored every single Yuk for decades.

American Cinematheque understands our desire to start a new year with a smile, hope, and a little cocky stupidity. And traditionally, the film-loving organization shows two vintage comedies on New Year’s Day with the brotherly troupe in the lead role.

The space? The Aero Theater in Santa Monica is the usual place for all this unusually fun yuk-a-tude.

2022 screenings include Animal Crackers and Monkey Business, and you can count on the gentlemen to master tons of gimmicks in both classics. Groucho offers his incredible commentary on the nutty nuances of any situation.

Guests should be vaccinated, says the American Cinematheque crew, and it is necessary to evaluate your ticket in advance.

And these tickets? They cost $ 13 each for the general public and $ 8 for members.

By the way, the 2022 event marks the 16th go-around for this New Years Day, a favorite of comedy fans in Southern California, the folks eager to give the first day of the newly unboxed year a cheerful cheek.
