This Wednesday, September 27th, the Bellows Falls Opera House presents the original Father of the Bride, starring Spencer Tracy, Joan Bennett, and Elizabeth Taylor.

In the aftermath of the wedding of his daughter Kay (Elizabeth Taylor), Stanley T. Banks (Spencer Tracy), a successful middle-aged lawyer, recalls the day three months earlier when he first learned of her engagement to Buckley (Don Taylor). Kay’s casual announcement at the dinner table of the family’s comfortable suburban home that she is in love with him and has accepted his proposal makes Stanley feel uneasy, but he soon recognizes that his daughter has grown up and the wedding is inevitable. While Ellie (Joan Bennett), Kay’s mother, immediately begins making preparations, Stanley lies awake at night, fearing the worst for his daughter.

Tickets are $6 and the movie runs 1 hour and 32 minutes. For more information visit –
