Before there was MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, director Alan Rudolph ferried viewers into the legendary Paris of the 1920s with this fable of fictional American ex-pat artists brushing elbows with the likes of Hemingway and Gertrude Stein. Linda Fiorentino, Keith Carradine, Genevieve Bujold, Geraldine Chaplin and Wallace Shawn form the ensemble cast. Join us in celebrating American Cinematheque staff member Margot Gerber's 20th anniversary with the organization.
"I haven't seen THE MODERNS since it came out, but it impressed me then, when I was very young and saw it in Paris. I am looking forward to revisiting this movie memory on the occasion of my 20th anniversary on staff at the American Cinematheque - with the many people I've 'cinema-bonded' with over the years - on my absolute favorite screen! To sort of quote Hemingway, 'If you were in Paris in the '20s, it was good' - if you were at the Cinematheque in 1992 and your first job was to wrangle Audrey Hepburn, it was sublime!" - Margot Gerber
1920s attire encouraged!
