Want to see an odd, possibly interesting 1962 movie about circus life, based on a play by Ben Hecht, who wrote Front Page and played a role in the creation of Israel? Sure you do. Billy Rose's Jumbo, which was Doris Day's last musical movie, will be shown Monday from 7 to 9 p.m. at Studio Movie Grill, Central Expressway and Royal (northeast corner, northbound service drive behind the McDonald's), as part of Circus Movie Mania. The event, which costs $15 per ticket, is a benefit for the Dallas Children's Theater and is sponsored by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, which will bring their circus to American Airlines Center July 30 through August 10. What's Billy Rose's Jumbo about? Whaddya think? It's about an elephant, Dumbo. Loveable Pops and Doris Day character own circus. Bad man wants to buy them out. The pachyderm? See the movie. For tickets, call 214-740-0051 or visit dct.org.
Mon., July 7, 7-9 p.m., 2008
