Based on the classic Broadway hit, Joseph Mankiewicz’ film version of Guys and Dolls brings you into the world of love and sin in Damon Runyon’s fictional New York City. With an all-star cast featuring Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, and Jean Simmons, Guys and Dolls delighted audiences and critics alike, winning two Golden Globe awards and receiving four Oscar nominations in 1965. The beloved take on the famous Broadway production features the music and lyrics of Frank Loesser, with favorites including “Luck Be a Lady,” “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat,” and “If I Were a Bell.” As charming and witty as the original, Guys and Dolls brought the lives of Nathan Detroit and Sky Masterson to the big screen in what Time Out called “a musical… glittering with intelligence and invention.”

After the film, don’t miss a talkback with John Loesser, the son of legendary composer Frank Loesser. Born in 1950, the same year that Guys and Dolls made its big debut on the Broadway stage, John has always considered the musical his “illegitimate brother.” And ever since, the twins have been inseparable. Throughout the years, John Loesser has seen the production grow, from the original production, to the big screen, to West End revivals, and he loves sharing his experiences along the way. As John says, “Guys and Dolls and I have shared our lives for the last 65 years, and I love sharing fun highlights and stories about its impact on the world.” Hear all the exciting stories during John Loesser’s talkback after the film this August.
