Overture Center is committed to the safety of our guests, resident organizations, artists, volunteers and staff. In response to the current health situation, many shows are being rescheduled or canceled, including “Why Worry”.
We have great news to share. The Duck Soup Cinema screening of “Why Worry” has been rescheduled to APR 17, 2021 and will replace the previously scheduled screening of “Suds”.
In this wonderful 1923 film, Harold Lloyd portrays a wealthy and spoiled young man who is so obsessed with his health that he decides he needs to take a cruise to a southern climate and stay in “Paradiso,” a fictitious South American island off the cost of Chile. He goes there with his nurse and valet. He thought he would find peace, but stumbles into a revolution instead.
