The Lindsay Theater & Pittsburgh Classic Movie Club Present Multiple Oscar-Winning Story The Best Years of Our Lives, on Feb. 1

February 1 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


The Lindsay Theater and Cultural Center, in collaboration with the Pittsburgh Classic Movie Club, will present a one-time screening of the 1946 Best Picture Oscar winner The Best Years of Our Lives, Thursday, Feb. 1, at 7 p.m.

One of the first 25 films selected by the Library of Congress for inclusion on the National Film Registry, The Best Years of Our Lives tells the story of three World War II veterans who return home to small-town America to discover that they and their families have been irreparably changed.

The film won seven Oscars including Best Actor for Fredric March, Best Director for WIlliam Wyler and Best Supporting Actor for Harold Russell, who was not a professional actor and who actually lost his hands while serving in the military during World War II. The film was a huge commercial and critical hit, the highest-grossing film since Gone With the Wind in both the United States and United Kingdom.

“You’ll be entertained; you’ll be thrilled; you’ll be spiritually elevated by it,” raved the Miami Herald. “The Best Years of Our Lives takes its place among the 10 most emotionally moving motion pictures we’ve ever seen.”

“One of the best pictures of our lives,” says Variety.

“The Best Years of Our Lives is beloved by so many of our club members. We are thrilled to see it again, and to introduce it to those who have not yet seen it,” says Pittsburgh Classic Movie Club President Wendy Whittick, who will introduce the film. The club strives to promote and preserve classic films from Hollywood’s Golden Age with screenings personally curated by their expert members. The club is a haven for classic movie fans to share their love of classics with like-minded members.
