‘Annie Hall’ on tap for film buffs
Slim pickings for film buffs this week of Friday, Dec. 28, but among the few revivals and special screenings playing is “Annie Hall.”
Seattle Times movie critic
One of the great American comedies plays this week at the Grand Illusion: “Annie Hall,” Woody Allen’s 1977 Oscar-winning gem, screens through Thursday in a new 35mm print. It’s the movie that made Diane Keaton (and her quirky wardrobe) a star, that presented Manhattan as a romantic wonderland full of “places to walk after dinner,” and that made all of us wish, in the heat of an argument, that we could conjure up Marshall McLuhan. It runs through Thursday, with Saturday’s 7 p.m. screening introduced by Seattle University film professor Bill Taylor. 1403 N.E. 50th St., Seattle; 206-523-3935 or www.grandillusioncinema.org. Go, because we need the eggs.
And finally, this weekend’s midnight movie at the Egyptian is “Django,” the 1966 Sergio Corbucci spaghetti western that served as an inspiration for Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, “Django Unchained.” Friday and Saturday only, 805 E. Pine St., Seattle; 206-781-5755 or www.landmarktheatres.com. Happy New Year!
