"A bittersweet legend with laughs that leaves the spirits soaring." -The New York Times

ROMAN HOLIDAY remains one of the great romances in the history of Hollywood cinema!

The story follows a rebellious Princess on an official tour of the capitals of Europe. While in Rome she sneaks out of her guarded room and ends up falling asleep on a bench. She is found by a straight-laced American newspaper reporter who takes her back to his room, but has no idea who she is. He's there to cover the story of her tour and, when he finally realizes her identity, uses his luck to snag an exclusive interview. Of course, when love and Rome are involved, things don't always go according to plan.

Star Audrey Hepburn's legendary performance as secluded, sheltered Princess Ann secured her a place among the pantheon of silver screen icons. Her co-star Gregory Peck ain't too shabby either as the newsman who wins her heart.

Even decades after its release few screen romances are filled with this much freewheeling fun. Director William Wyler keeps the energy going while beautifully photographing the picturesque Roman backdrop to heartstopping effect.

The Alamo is proud to bring you this 60th anniversary presentation of ROMAN HOLIDAY!
