    Join us for a screening of King Vidor's romantic adventure film Bird of Paradise starring Dolores del Rio, Joel McCrea and John Halliday. The adventure begins when a young man falls overboard and is saved by a beautiful Polynesian girl. They fall in love, but when the local volcano begins to erupt everything changes. The local custom dictates that they must sacrifice a young woman to the volcanic gods and it ends del Rio's character is the chosen one. They try to escape but realize that "east is east and west is west, and never the twain shall meet."
