In honor of its 70th anniversary, The African Queen heads to select cinemas nationwide on July 18 and 21, courtesy of Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events. Starring Academy Award® winners Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn, The African Queen tells the timeless tale of two mismatched strangers joining forces in a common cause – and finding love along the way.
The story chronicles the burgeoning romance between Bogie’s river rat Charlie Allnut and Hepburn’s missionary Rose Sayer, as they reluctantly join forces to torpedo a German gunboat in war-torn East Africa. Enjoy this special anniversary event that includes exclusive insights from Turner Classic Movies.
