Synopsis

Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Warner Bros. Entertainment are bringing The Philadelphia Story to select cinemas nationwide for a special two-day event, which includes specially produced commentary from Turner Classic Movies. On the eve of Tracy Samantha Lord's (Katharine Hepburn) wedding, her blue-blood ex-husband, C.K. Dexter Haven (Cary Grant), returns. C.K. discovered that a national tabloid plans to do an expose on Tracy's philandering father and has agreed to smuggle a reporter (James Stewart) into her wedding if the magazine kills the story on the elder Lord. But C.K. never expects that the woman he still loves will suddenly fall for the undercover reporter. Now, before the evening is over, Tracy will be forced to take an unflinching look at herself and to realize which of these three men she truly loves.
