The final movie of the Monday Night Movies in the Park series at the Camden Amphitheatre will be the fabulous 1930s movie “Gold Diggers of 1933,” rain or shine. The movie will be screened on Monday, Aug. 19, at 7:45 p.m. The movie will be shown indoors if the weather is rainy; it was already rescheduled once from early in the summer due to rain, “and we don’t want to put it off any longer,” said Ken Gross, Program Director at the library.

Moviegoers should bring blankets or lawn chairs for seating. The movies are free, but donations will be accepted. The library hosts Movies in the Park thanks to the support of Allen Insurance & Financial.

“Gold Diggers of 1933” stars Dick Powell, Ginger Rogers, Joan Blondell, Ruby Murray and other stars of the early 1930s. Polly, Trixie, and Carol are three vivacious and attractive showgirls who room together and scrape a precarious living by getting hired for each new Broadway musical as it crops up, and riding their luck until it closes — which is often before it even opens.

“Gold Diggers” contains some of the showiest dance numbers of the era and several show tune favorites including “We’re in the Money” and “Pettin’ in the Park.” It has a first-rate cast, a first-rate director and oh, those show girls and Busby Berkeley choreography.

Made in the year when the global economic crash hit rock bottom, and the first signs of recovery began to appear, ”Gold Diggers” is very much a product of the Depression. Bread lines and penury are all around, but there is a jaunty air of optimism, too.
