I’ve been wanting to see the newly restored 1928 Riverside Fox Theater but so far nothing on the schedule has grabbed me. (Ditto with Ontario’s Citizens Business Bank Arena, although I’ve at least toured that building.)
Well, at 7 p.m. Friday, the Riverside Fox, 3801 Mission Ave., will show the Marx Brothers classic “Duck Soup,” plus Groucho impersonator Frank Ferrante live on stage doing 90 minutes of Marxism. Read about the event here. Tickets are $20 to $49.
I’ll likely be there — “Duck Soup,” a farce about politics and war, is one of my favorite movies and, while I’d rather pay half the money and see only the movie, the Groucho guy might be fun. And I’m looking forward to eyeballing the “other” Fox (as opposed to Pomona’s).
“Hail, hail Freedonia, land of the brave and freeeee!”
