Enjoy the legendary drama Sunset Boulevard from the comfort of your own home. This 1950 black comedy/film noir was directed and co-written by Billy Wilder and is considered one of the 100 best American films of the 20th century. William Holden stars as a struggling screenwriter who is drawn into the fantasy world of a former silent film star, Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson). It was nominated in all four acting Oscar categories and won three. The film will be available for streaming for three days.

Admission: $5. Free for IJWC Year-round Programming subscribers who will receive a complimentary ticket.

This screening is part of the series From Europe with Film and is sponsored by the EBIJFF in partnership with the CCJCC and Lafayette Library and Learning Center Foundation.
