Widely regarded as a comedy in 1960, Jack Lemmon plays C.C.Baxter, a go-getting office worker who loans his tiny apartment to his philandering superiors for their romantic trysts. He runs into trouble when he finds himself sharing a girlfriend (Shirley MacLaine) with his callous boss (Fred MacMurray).
Director Billy Wilder’s customary cynicism is leavened here by tender humor, romance, and genuine pathos.
The Apartment won 6 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay.
This event is screened in Oscars and spaces are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
