WES ANDERSON & FRIENDS
Double Feature!
THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL / TO BE OR NOT TO BE
THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL
2014, Fox Searchlight, 100 min, USA, Dir: Wes Anderson

Somewhere in Zubrowka, before WWII wiped that country off the map, sits the Grand Budapest Hotel; at its heart is concierge M. Gustave (Ralph Fiennes). With faithful lobby boy Zero Moustafa (newcomer Tony Revolori) at his side, he keeps things running smoothly - until a priceless painting that could tip the balance of a family fortune arrives at the hotel. Writer-director Wes Anderson has assembled an all-star cast for this comedy-drama, with Oscar winners F. Murray Abraham, Adrien Brody and Tilda Swinton joining such regular collaborators as Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Owen Wilson.


35 mm!

TO BE OR NOT TO BE
1942, Westchester Films, 99 min, USA, Dir: Ernst Lubitsch

The threat posed by Nazi Germany was very real when director Ernst Lubitsch took aim at the Third Reich in this now-classic comedy. Jack Benny and Carole Lombard (in her final role) are married actors in Warsaw when Hitler’s troops invade; they and the rest of their company must give the performances of their lives to save pilot Robert Stack and the Polish resistance from Nazi spies. No less a comedic great than Mel Brooks put his stamp of approval on the film, remaking it in 1983.
