About the event

Join us for a special 20th Anniversary Celebration with "Road to Morocco," a comedic gem starring Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. This riotous adventure kicks off with starving vagabond Jeff (Crosby) selling his best friend Orville (Hope) into slavery in a Moroccan marketplace to buy food. Racked with guilt, Jeff sets out to rescue his friend, only to discover that Orville is now engaged to the stunning Princess Shalmar (Dorothy Lamour). According to her astrologers, her first husband is destined to die violently, freeing her to marry her beloved Sheik Mullay Kasim (Anthony Quinn). However, when the princess falls for Jeff, hilarity ensues, and the situation becomes wonderfully complicated. Packed with laughs, memorable performances, and classic gags, "Road to Morocco" is a delightful escapade you won't want to miss. Join us for an evening of fun, nostalgia, and celebration!
