LAKEPORT, Calif. – The 1940 romantic comedy, “The Shop Around the Corner,” starring James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan, screens at the Soper Reese Theatre on Tuesday, Dec. 18, with shows at 1 and 6 p.m.

Entry to the film is by donation.

Deftly directed by Ernst Lubitsch from a smart, funny script by Samson Raphaelson, this superbly acted film, adapted from a Hungarian play, takes place during the Depression among a few underpaid employees in a small notions store.

Two of those employees clash on the job and are surprised to learn the pen pal they have each been writing to, and falling in love with, is no other than that same workplace nemesis.

The movie is sponsored by Nancy Rhoades and Susie Darnell. Not rated. Run time is 1 hour and 39 minutes.

The Soper Reese Theatre is located at 275 S. Main St., Lakeport, 707-263-0577,
