The Long, Long Trailer
March 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pmFree
As part of the Chincoteague Heritage Days celebration, the Island Theatre will be offering free showings of a special movie. An old photo from 1954 shows one of the parades commemorating the town’s “Clean Up – Paint Up – Fix Up” campaign. In the photo the Island Theatre marquee is visible, and the picture being shown at the time was The Long, Long Trailer starring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. The Chincoteague Island Arts Organization is happy to bring this comedy classic back for this year’s Heritage Days.
The Long, Long Trailer is a great family film with Lucy up to her usual hilarious schemes and hijinks, and an exasperated Desi dealing with all the consequences as they take their honeymoon cross-county hauling their brand new and very large trailer.
