In Durham on Friday, the Carolina Theatre’s RetroTreasures series offers a double feature of a couple of classic screwball comedies from the 1930s. First up, Howard Hawkes’ “Bringing Up Baby” (1938), which has Cary Grant as David Huxley, a paleontologist hoping to get a one million dollar donation to his museum from a society matron (May Robson), but he first has to contend with the scatterbrained shenanigans of her niece, Susan Vance (Katharine Hepburn), and her pet leopard Baby. Following that is Leo McCarey’s “Duck Soup” (1933), which involves the iconic comedy troupe, the Marx Brothers, taking over the fictional country of Freedonia.
The double bill begins at 7 p.m. and admission is $9. Details: 919-560-3030 or carolinatheatre.org.
