In celebration of its 25th anniversary and re-release, join us for a special holiday screening of
Metropolitan directed by Whit Stillman
"Metropolitan...Christmas Vacation...Not so long ago..."
Whit Stillman's Academy Award-nominated indie classic Metropolitan makes a wonderful addition to any holiday weekend. An ironically comic look at Manhattan’s endangered debutante scene, Metropolitan chronicles the rise and ultimate decline of a group of young Park Avenue socialites who gather nightly to discuss love, honor, and the impending demise of their class.
PG-13; 98 minutes
“AN ENDURING FAVORITE. AS CRISP AS EVER."
– Mark Rozzo, Vanity Fair
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker
“An endearingly pointy-headed comedy of manners…
you’ll probably end up wistful for a pre-selfie era.”
– David Edelstein, New York Magazine
