My suggestion to you is to grab another woman, an irrational man (or whatever works) and take the money and run because the sweet and lowdown on this event is that it's a September sleeper about Manhattan interiors and exteriors that husbands and wives and small time crooks alike will enjoy. However some of us are over Woody. But that's a whole other New York story. Enjoy.
Here's a description of the event from the Landmark West! website:
Woody Allen’s uniquely romantic and comically inventive use of the Upper West Side and its charms is at the thematic heart of some of his most iconic NYC films, including Annie Hall, Manhattan, and Hannah and Her Sisters. From the fabulous façades of the Ansonia and Alwyn Court to rambling Upper West Side interiors (oh those libraries!), it is clear that the UWS is a star all its own in Allen’s cityscape.
Speaker: Paula Uruburu, Professor of English and Film Studies at Hofstra University, is our guide for a cinefantastic tour of New York’s Upper West Side, as seen through the nostalgic and neurotic lens of NYC’s quintessential filmmaker, circa 1977-1986.
She received her Ph.D. from SUNY Stony Brook in English in 1983 with specializations in American literature, film studies and drama. Her last book, American Eve, tells the story of the meteoric rise to fame and the tragic consequences of Gibson Girl Evelyn Nesbit's fated relationships with famed architect Stanford White and murderer Harry Thaw. She is currently finishing a book on the infamous Lizzie Borden. Dr. Uruburu has acted as a consultant to A&E, PBS, the History Channel, and the Smithsonian Channel.
