Cinema Springfield: You May Remember Such Films As...
A Streetcar Named Desire in 35mm
In 1989, an animated sitcom about a suburban family and their small town debuted, changing television--and American culture--forever. One of the keys to that show's influence? Extended parodies of some of the most iconic films ever made. As a tribute to that beloved show, The Roxy is proud to present Cinema Springfield: You May Remember Such Films As... a weekly series of those movies, each of them followed by a very special epilogue, all through July and August.

Based on the play by Tennessee Williams, this renowned drama follows troubled former schoolteacher Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh) as she leaves small-town Mississippi and moves in with her sister, Stella Kowalski (Kim Hunter), and her husband, Stanley (Marlon Brando), in New Orleans. Blanche's flirtatious Southern-belle presence causes problems for Stella and Stanley, who already have a volatile relationship, leading to even greater conflict in the Kowalski household.
