WHEN SAM MET TESS ... 

To truly appreciate the chemistry between Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, one must witness it at the moment when the match was struck. The Downtown Lawrence Film Festival will chart the cinematic course of Tracy and Hepburn's timeless romance over the summer, all the way through 1967's Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Tonight, when Tracy's down-to-earth sportswriter meets Hepburn's high-minded columnist in George Stevens' Woman of the Year (1942), it's not your typical Hollywood meet-cute. It's more like voyeurism — something's really happening up there on the screen. Projected on the City Parking Garage at Ninth Street and New Hampshire, the free films begin at 9:15 p.m., preceded by live music at 8, plus free popcorn to the first 250 attendees and prize drawings provided by sponsoring businesses. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets. For more information and a complete screening schedule, see downtownlawrence.com or call 785-842-3883.
Thu., June 11, 8 p.m.; Thu., June 25, 8 p.m.; Thu., July 9, 8 p.m.; Thu., July 23, 8 p.m.; Thu., Aug. 13, 8 p.m.; Thu., Aug. 27, 8 p.m., 2009
