Don't miss this 60th anniversary screening of Audrey Hepburn’s Oscar-winning portrayal of a runaway princess who escapes her royal guardians and falls in love with an American newsman in Rome. Roman Holiday set the standard for the modern romantic comedy. Shot entirely on location, Roman Holiday marked 24-year-old Hepburn’s first foray into American cinema and was the first American film to be shot in its entirety in Italy.
