I feel so contemporary, having seen the movie before some of the New Yorkers! Woo-hoo! It will be here in Maine and I will be seeing it again.

Lee, I think some of your parallels are a bit of a reach but...to each his/her own. Whatever works for you.

Paul, glad you found the link to the screenplay helpful. That is the sort of thing I do well...ferret out sources.

Imaginarium has opened in Maine. Hannah and I will see it this weekend. I expect to be emotional.

John,

Thank you for the pics. As always I feel as if I have been to New York through them.

John,
Thank you for the pics. As always I feel as if I have been to New York through them.


You're welcome, Sel!

So--

A most elegant theater for a most elegant film!

"Located next to luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman and across from The Plaza Hotel and Central Park, this posh, single-screen theater
screens independent and international films. Opened in 1948, the Paris Theatre is the longest continually operating art cinema in the United States."









Much will be said about the film--later.
But, in the meanwhile--

--Geo and Charley 'do fondue' at 'The Pig' (how 60's is that)!

Wonderful evening, John!  Thanks for the pics, too, although I've looked better. Must have been the lighting. :P   ;)  ;D

I loved the film and Colin Firth's performance.  So elegiacal and poignant, and it really brought back the sixties to me.  The music is really nice, too.  Tom Ford did a great job!  8)
