Our Classic Film Series wouldn't be complete without a screening of NATIONAL VELVET (1945), the film that made Elizabeth Taylor famous at age 12. She stars as Velvet Brown, a horse-obsessed girl who, with the help of penniless wanderer Mi Taylor (Mickey Rooney), rides her way to victory at the all-male Grand National.
Did you know Velvet Brown's horse was chosen by and later given to Elizabeth Taylor as a birthday present? Study up on more fun facts like this to win prizes in our hosted trivia before the evening screening, only at The Grand!
Experience this classic on the big screen at 1:45 or 6:45 PM.
