USA/Spain | 2011 | col | dir. Woody Allen, with Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Adrien Brody, Carla Bruni

Paris is a city that lends itself to daydreaming, to walking the streets and imagining all sorts of magic, a quality that Woody Allen understands perfectly. Midnight in Paris is Allen’s charming reverie about just that quality, with a screenwriter hero named Gil (Owen Wilson) who strolls the lanes of Paris with his head in the clouds and walks right into his own best fantasy. A midnight encounter draws him into the jazzy world of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Picasso and Dali, and an intense Ernest Hemingway. Gil wakes up every morning back in the real world, but returning to his enchanted Paris proves fairly easy…

Valentine’s Day special screening followed by a Q&A with Academy Award nominated Production Designer Anne Seibel and Jason Solomons, author of Woody Allen Film by Film
