The Secret Cinema presents 1935 musical political satire 
THANKS A MILLION at historic Glen Foerd mansion

Wednesday, July 25,2018 
8:00 pm (doors open 7:00 pm) 
Admission: $10.00 

Glen Foerd on the Delaware 
Grant Avenue & Milnor Street, Philadelphia 
(215) 632-5330 

On Wednesday, July 25, the Secret Cinema will present films at perhaps the 
most impressive venue in our long history — historic Glen Foerd on the 
Delaware, a historic mansion and estate located in the Torresdale 
neighborhood of Northeast Philadelphia. Glen Foerd is Philadelphia’s last 
remaining Delaware River estate open to the public. 

The screening will center on the 1935 feature film THANKS A MILLION, a 
hybrid of political satire and musical comedy, about a big band singer 
(Dick Powell) who is reluctantly recruited as an outsider candidate in the 
Pennsylvania gubernatorial election. The film is aided by a witty script 
from Nunnally Johnson, a top cast of ’30s co-stars and character actors 
(Ann Dvorak, Fred Allen, Raymond Walburn, Patsy Kelly), and guest musical 
numbers from the Yacht Club Boys and “King of Jazz” Paul Whiteman.
