Event Description
Breakfast and a Movie

The story, set in 1950s Hollywood, focuses on Norma Desmond, a silent-screen goddess whose pathetic belief in her own indestructibility has turned her into a demented recluse. The crumbling Sunset Boulevard mansion where she lives with only her butler, Max—who was once her director and husband—has become her self-contained world. Norma dreams of a comeback to pictures and she begins a relationship with Joe Gillis, a small-time writer who becomes her lover, that will soon end with murder and total madness. Sunset Boulevard was nominated for eleven Academy Awards and won three. It is widely accepted as a classic, often cited as one of the greatest films of American cinema. Deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the U.S. Library of Congress in 1989, Sunset Boulevard was included in the first group of films selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. In 1998, it was ranked number twelve on the American film Institute’s list of the 100 best America films of the 20th century, and in 2007 it was 16th on their 10th Anniversary list.

Directed by Billy Wilder. Starring William Holden, Gloria Swanson Look for cameos by Cecil B. DeMille, Hedda Hopper and Buster Keaton!!
