"Mad World" — times four — comes to Egyptian
OGDEN — The classic screwball comedy "It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" will be screened March 18 in downtown Ogden.
The movie, part of this year’s "Cult Comedies" series at the theater, will be shown at 7 p.m. March 18 at Peery’s Egyptian Theater, 2415 Washington Blvd.
The 1963 comedy tells the story of a group of strangers who come upon a dying motorist, who tells them about a buried treasure in stolen money. The revelation sets off a madcap chase to find the hidden fortune.
The film, directed by Stanley Kramer and starring Spencer Tracy, features a veritable who’s who of 1960s icons — including Milton Berle, Ethel Merman, Sid Caesar, Buddy Hackett, Mickey Rooney, Dick Shawn, Phil Silvers, Jonathan Winters, Jerry Lewis and many more.
Running time for "It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" is a whopping 3 hours, 25 minutes. Due to length, the film showing will include an intermission.
Tickets are $6, available through smithstix.com or at 801-689-8700.
