    In London, four very different people team up to commit armed robbery, then try to double-cross each other for the loot.

    For the last 25 years, The British Emporium has been the premier resource in North Texas for British groceries, gifts, teapots and pop culture items. The store will kick off its Silver Anniversary celebration with a screening of the classic British comedy, “A Fish Called Wanda,” at 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 24 at the Historic Palace Theatre in Downtown Grapevine.

    The London-staged heist film stars John Cleese, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Kline and Michael Palin.  Released in 1988, “A Fish Called Wanda” was directed by Charles Crichton and received critical acclaim from film organizations around the world.

    The Palace Theatre is a vintage theatre reminiscent of those found throughout the United Kingdom. To further enhance the nostalgic feeling of this setting, the concession stand will feature a few hard-to-find favorite British treats such as chocolates, biscuits, candy and more.

    The staff at The British Emporium has been actively involved in the local community during the store’s 25 years of business through events, fundraising and participation in local organizations.  They earnestly believe in supporting Grapevine since its residents and visitors have contributed to the store’s success over the years. Through this philosophy, they plan to donate proceeds from the anniversary events to GRACE, a Grapevine-based nonprofit relief agency that provides food, clothing, financial assistance and other vital necessities to those in need in the local community.

    On-line ticket sales close at midnight the night before the show. If you would like to purchase tickets the day of the show, you can do so at the Palace Box Office beginning one hour prior to show time. Please call the Palace Arts Center Ticketline at 817-410-3100 for more information.
