Residential Bulk Pick Up - January 25The City of La Grange
Dinner & a Movie: The Dirty DozenJoin us on Saturday, February 1st at 5pm for dinner and a movie at the Historic Casino Hall. The Dirty Dozen was one of the biggest hits of the 1960s and soon it will be on the big screen in La Grange. The Casino Arts Association is hosting the event with proceeds benefiting the promotion of the arts along with the continued preservation of the Historic Casino Hall.
The movie plot takes us to a very historic time in American history. As D-Day approaches, Colonel Breed hands the roguish Major Reisman (Lee Marvin) an important assignment: He must train a team of soldiers to parachute across enemy lines and assassinate German personnel at a French chateau. The soldiers, recruited from criminals on death row, are promised commuted sentences. In spite of their history, the 12 men prove a spirited and courageous unit.
The delicious, home-cooked meal is included in the $15 admission ticket. The meal includes: homemade meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans, carrot & pineapple raisin bread, and banana pudding.
Tickets can be purchased at the Historic Casino Hall and online.
