Combining the classic 1930s Screwball Comedies with Warner Brothers’ Looney Tunes cartoons, this ultimate ode to the streets of San Francisco must be seen in a packed movie house to be truly experienced! Showcasing one of Barbra Streisand’s most charming performances, as well as memorable roles by Madeline Kahn & Ryan O’Neil, this is pure comedic magic and has only grown funnier over the years. 1972, 94min. 35mm.

w/ Carol Burnett, Michael Caine, Denholm Elliott, Julie Hagerty, Marilu Henner, Mark Linn-Baker, Christopher Reeve, John Ritter, Nicollette Sheridan
One of Peter Bogdanovich’s most underrated gems is celebrating its 25th Anniversary! This uniquely adapted movie of Michael Frayn’s 1982 play-within-a-play, is filmed… like a play(!) Come re-evaluate this truly hilarious satire of the stage, predating and perhaps influencing Woody Allen’s BULLETS OVER BROADWAY and Christopher Guest’s WAiTiNG FOR GUFFMAN. Classic comedic performances by Carol Burnett, Michael Caine, John Ritter and the almighty Julie Hagerty. This loving tribute to “The Stage” (and tearing people’s clothes off) has the power to spin frenetic circles around you. 1992. 103 minutes. 35mm.
(NOTE: Special surprise following the screening!)
