"Mad About Mad Men"

When: Fri., Feb. 3, 5:30 p.m. 2012

The NCMA whoops it up for the return of television's Mad Men with a cocktail and costume party before the latest installment in their Madison Avenue-inspired film series. At 5:30 p.m., toss on your best '60s business attire and have a vintage drink and a bite in the galleries while listening to the Sidecar Social Club. Prizes will be given to the best dressed in several categories. Then stick around for the 1967 musical film How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Window washer J. Pierpont Finch (Robert Morse) rides ambition and a somewhat reprehensible self-help book to the top of the corporate ladder in a fun satire directed by David Swift. Morse and Rudy Vallee reprise their roles in the original Broadway hit, with Bob Fosse choreography added for this screen version. Admission to the pre-film party is free. The movie starts at 8 p.m. and costs $5, or $3.50 for members of the museum and certain film clubs. This event is co-sponsored by the Independent Weekly. —Chris Vitiello

Price: Party free; film $5
