Classic screwball comedy film 'For Pete's Sake' will be screened in Issaquah City Hall's Eagle Room 7 p.m. this Saturday.

The film, which stars Barbra Streisand early in her film career, follows a Brooklyn housewife (Streisand) who tries to bolster her husband Pete's (Michael Sarrazin) income as a cabbie by investing with money from a loan shark.

When things don't work out as planned, her debt is sold across the underworld and she finds herself working odd jobs as a prostitute, bomber, cattle rustler and more -- bumbling every step of the way.

Admission to the film is free. Issaquah City Hall is located at 130 E. Sunset Way.
