"My Annie Hall," a senior citizen remake of the classic film Annie Hall
Wednesday August 15: 8:00PM – 9:00PM
Tickets are $10 and include a Strand gift card for the same amount. A limited number of tickets will be available for purchase at the event. This event will take place in the Rare Book Room, located on the 3rd floor of the Strand and accessible via the stairs or elevator next door at 826 Broadway.
On August 15th at 8pm, Strand Bookstore will be screening a version of “Annie Hall” like you’ve never seen it before: reinterpreted by two artists in their 20s, working in collaboration with members of a Manhattan senior center. Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Goldbergs) said that the film “has a humanity to it and a sweetness to it that I don’t see in any other work.” The directors, Matt Starr and Ellie Sachs, and the stars, Harry Miller and Shula Chernick, will be on hand to discuss what they learned from working together, and the unlikely friendships that arose. If you’re lucky, maybe Harry will tap dance. They’ll be joined by John Leland, who wrote about the movie in the New York Times (twice!), and who documented his own cross-generational awakening in his New York Times bestseller Happiness Is a Choice You Make: Lessons from a Year among the Oldest Old.
