Moto Films at Sarasota’s Ringling Museum

Peter Lorre fans in the Sarasota, Florida, area are in for a special treat on Saturday, July 9, 2016 – a Mr. Moto double-feature at the Ringling Museum of Art.

The program begins at 1:30 pm with Thank You, Mr. Moto (1937), the second in the Moto series of the late 1930s, and Mr. Moto Takes a Chance (1938), released third. A discussion of the films and their role in presenting Asian images in American culture will follow.

Admission is $5 for all seats. Ringling Museum members will be admitted free of charge.

The Ringling Museum is located at 5401 Bay Shore Road, in Sarasota, Florida. Directions to the museum are available on the Ringling website.

The two Mr. Moto movies will be shown in the Chao Lecture Hall.

“Suiting you?”, as the intrepid Japanese detective would say . . . .
