Freedonia Marxonia to continue yearly theatrical tradition

Having fun at Freedonia Marxonia.

The annual “Freedonia Marxonia: Marx Brothers Film Festival and Symposium” will take place on Saturday, Nov. 2 from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Tim Horton’s Cafe in the Williams Center at SUNY Fredonia.

All campus and community members are welcome to celebrate in the historical event.

Participants will receive a free pair of Groucho glasses for attending the event. Other festivities will include a movie showing of the Marx Brothers original comedy, “Duck Soup” and the annual Groucho group photo at 1:30 p.m. Cash prizes will be awarded to the best entry in the following three categories: Marx Brothers’ Mirror scene reenactment from “Duck Soup,” art and look-a-like efforts. All attendees are strongly encouraged to take part in the cash prize contests.

Douglas Canham, ‘87, a founding member of the event and sponsor of the 2009 reestablishment of Freedonia Marxonia, will be present to share in the celebration, along with donors of the Freedonia Marxonia endowment, Matthew and Cheri Hahn.
