Woody Allen Essentials

Discuss this series with other film fans on:


This series is an Aero Theatre Exclusive!


Woody Allen remains one of the most prodigious talents of his generation, a triple threat wonder representing acting, directing and writing, almost exclusively for motion picture comedies. But, as we’ve seen most recently with Allen’s riveting, character-driven neo-noir, MATCH POINT, he is equally accomplished at drama as well. Please join us for some of his most acclaimed comedy films, including MANHATTAN, HANNAH AND HER SISTERS, EVERYTHING YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT SEX (BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK) and THE PURPLE ROSE OF CAIRO.



Wednesday, May 3 - 7:30 PM
1979, Sony Repertory, 96 min. Director Woody Allen is a divorced New York City comedy writer interacting with a divergent variety of friends and lovers in this biting comedy-drama about relationships. Co-starring a dream cast, including Diane Keaton, Meryl Streep, Mariel Hemingway, Michael Murphy, Tisa Farrow.




Wednesday, May 10 – 7:30 PM

THE PURPLE ROSE OF CAIRO, 1985, Sony Repertory, 84 min. Dir Woody Allen. 1930’s matinee idol, Jeff Daniels, walks down off the movie screen into sweet, adoring fan Mia Farrow’s life in this bittersweet, comic fantasy. With Dianne Wiest, Danny Aiello, Van Johnson, Milo O’Shea, Edward Herrmann.




Thursday, May 18 - 7:30 PM

HANNAH AND HER SISTERS, 1986, Sony Repertory, 103 min. Dir. Woody Allen. A romantic comedy set in New York over a Thanksgiving holiday involving Hannah (Mia Farrow) and her precocious siblings (Barbara Hershey, Dianne Wiest), all playing virtual musical chairs with a gang of lovers (Woody Allen, Michael Caine, Max Von Sydow, Sam Waterston). With Lloyd Nolan and Margaret Sullivan (Mia’s real-life mom) as the girls’ put-upon parents. Allen is very funny as Farrow’s hypochondriac ex-husband. Caine and Wiest won Best Supporting Oscars while Allen won a statuette for Best Screenplay.




Wednesday, May 31 - 7:30 PM

EVERYTHING YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT SEX (BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK), 1972, Sony Repertory, 87 min. Dr. David Reuben, who wrote the now nearly-forgotten bestseller of the same name, could never have guessed how director Woody Allen would transform his sexual infotainment tome into a hilariously tasteless, episodic comedy about the birds and the bees. With a gigantic cast of greats, including Allen, Lynn Redgrave, Tony Randall, Burt Reynolds, Gene Wilder, Louise Lasser, John Carradine (!) and more.
