The senior screenings for April includes Show Boat (1951 U) on 

Wednesday, April 10.

While the Ol' Man River just keeps rollin' along, Magnolia, the daughter of Cap'n Andy Hawks, and the handsome gambler Ravenal fall in love.

A financial success at the time, and described as 'a whale of a show', this 1951 film version of this Mississippi musical is a delightful classic.
