The Little Italy Open-Air Film Festival continues tonight with a screening of "Come September," Robert Mulligan's 1961 comedy about a businessman (Rock Hudson) who finds out his rented Italian villa has been overrun with tourists when he arrives for his yearly stay in September. Gina Lollobrigida co-stars. Bobby Darrin and Sandra Dee make their screen debut, and were married shortly after filming ended.

The movie begins at 9 p.m. at the corner of High and Stiles streets. Bring your own lawn chair for maximum comfort. As always, admission is free.

The program begins at 7:30 p.m. and is being held in conjunction with the Historical Society's ongoing exhibition "Filming Maryland."

Loews White Marsh Theatre will present its second free matinee series of classic movies starting Wednesday with "Breakfast at Tiffany's," Blake Edwards' 1961 adaptation of the Truman Capote novel starring Audrey Hepburn as the irrepressible and glamorous Holly Golightly.
