The Historical Society of Princeton presents Grand Illusion at the Garden Theatre

July 19 • 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$7.75 – $13.50

Jean Renoir’s anti-war film is one of the masterpieces of cinema. Jean Gabin and Pierre Fresnay star as French soldiers grappling with their own class difference after being captured and held in a World War I German prison camp. Also starring Erich von Stroheim as the unforgettable German Captain von Rauffenstein, this film reportedly brought J. Robert Oppenheimer to tears when he and his wife Kitty saw it at the Princeton Garden during its initial release.

This screening is in collaboration with the Historical Society of Princeton. It will be introduced by Eve Mandel, Director of Programs and Outreach. An Oppenheimer-themed walking tour will be offered this summer in conjunction with the July 21 release of the Christopher Nolan film Oppenheimer.
