Classic comedy movies night, dinner slated at Bristol restaurant


An evening of classic comedy movies along with an Italian dinner will be held 5:30 p.m. Sunday, April 21 at Georgine’s Restaurant, in Bristol.

The family-friendly event is open to the public, and organized by the Two Tars Tent of Philadelphia, the local chapter of The Sons of the Desert.

In 1964 a group of Laurel and Hardy film enthusiasts including actor Orson Bean formed a fun-loving fraternal organization called The Sons of the Desert, a tongue-in-cheek organization dedicated to the enjoyment of Laurel and Hardy and other classic comedy films. Stan Laurel helped to pen the group’s comic “constitution” including “tents” led by a “Grand Sheik.”

The Delaware-Valley area Two Tars is one of the oldest and is in its 53rd year.

The program will also include an “Our Gang” short and a classic cartoon.

Tickets include an Italian dinner buffet at the restaurant. Tickets and program information is available by contactng the Two Tars Tent ar, or by visiting
