Dir. Woody Allen. 1979, 96 mins.

With Woody Allen, Diane Keaton, Mariel Hemingway. This sophisticated urban romantic roundelay is one of Woody Allen’s wittiest movies, and also his most visually stunning work. Its unforgettable black-and-white imagery, shot by Gordon Willis and accompanied by the timeless music of George Gershwin, changed the way we revere and romanticize New York City, while Keaton’s crippingly neurotic know-it-all and Hemingway’s Oscar-nominated teen love interest provide Allen with two of his most memorable romances. It’s hard to imagine modern neurotic comedy (especially Seinfeld) without it.

Free with Museum admission.
