A Capra-sized laugh?

I’m a projectionist down at the Lighthouse cinema [Smithfield, Dublin]. Since it’s such a beautiful day there’s some guaranteed cheer on down here, ‘It Happened One Night’ is on at 8.30, kicking off our Screwball Comedy Season.
Screwball movies were the comedy answer to The Great Depression and are the drunken bickering parents of all your favourite sitcoms (30 Rock, Arrested Development, etc.).
I’ll be stuck here anyway, so it’d be nice to see the tops of as many heads as possible laughing through my tiny window. Keep on truckin, (or your equivalent metaphor).
