"Metropolitan" 30th Anniversary

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join writer/director Whit Stillman and actors Chris Eigeman, Carolyn Farina and Taylor Nichols for a 30th anniversary screening of "Metropolitan," moderated by Jesse Hawthorne Ficks.

One of the great American independent films of the 1990s, the surprise hit "Metropolitan," by writer-director Whit Stillman, is a sparkling comedic chronicle of a young man’s romantic misadventures while trying to fit in to New York City’s debutante society. Stillman’s deft, literate dialogue and hilariously highbrow observations earned this first film an Academy Award nomination for best original screenplay. Beneath the wit and sophistication, though, lies a tender tale of adolescent anxiety.

Single screening tickets available, or you can choose to buy a double feature ticket and see "Barcelona" as well. ($35 General Admission, $60 Double Feature with "Barcelona", 18+)

Co-presented by SFFILM
