The Granada Theatre Presents Trading Places
Join us at The Granada Theatre on Monday, June 26th for lots of laughs with Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd in the film Trading Places . Part of the Elmer Bernstein Memorial Film Series, this 1983 comedy classic will screen in honor and memory of the Santa Barbara resident and chart-topping composer and songwriter.
Dan Aykroyd (best known for his roles in The Blues Brothers and Ghostbusters) plays an upper-class executive Louis Winthorpe III and Eddie Murphy (best known for his roles in The Nutty Professor andThe Beverly Hills Cop series) plays a down-and-out hustler, Billy Ray Valentine, who both are the subjects of a bet by successful brokers Mortimer and Randolph Duke. When Winthorpe, an employee of the Dukes, is framed for a crime, the brokers place Valentine in his position. Come enjoy the comical and witty journey of Valentine and Winthorpe as they try to turn the tables against Mortimer and Duke.
