The secret to a great film lies in the authenticity of its dialogue, just as the secret to a great foreign film lies in swapping the subtitles with stock quotes. Discover classic love scenes and punch lines with today’s Groupon to see six screenings of the Greenwich Classic Film Series, held at the Bow Tie movie theater in Greenwich. Each show’s program begins promptly at 7 p.m. The membership must be activated by September 16, 2011. Choose between the following options:
- For $49, you get a Monday membership (September 19, October 3, October 17, November 7, November 14, and November 28) (a $142 value, including a $12 ticket handling charge).
- For $49, you get a Tuesday membership (September 20, October 4, October 18, November 8, November 15, and November 29) (a $142 value, including a $12 ticket handling charge).
Modern audiences step into a theatrical time machine for a six-week run of classic films from the ’30s through ’70s as the Greenwich Classic Film Series draws the curtain on its 44th season. This fall season’s schedule appeals to cinema buffs of all stripes, starting with Alfred Hitchcock’s 1955 robbery caper To Catch a Thief. Woody Allen pens a neurotic love letter to Manhattan with 1977’s Annie Hall, and Orson Welles weaves a web of suspense in The Lady from Shanghai. Guest lecturers provide context for each film, sharing behind-the-scenes anecdotes and describing the chemistry between the leading actors and the tacos they ate on set. Lecturers return after the credits for an informative postscript and a brief Q&A session. Movies are subject to change.
Though membership grants access to either Monday- or Tuesday-night showings, members with scheduling conflicts may attend movies on their non-membership night or allow friends to take their place with advance notice. Members will also have the opportunity to purchase discounted tickets to all Bow Tie movie theaters, allowing them to stay up-to-date with Hollywood happenings without having to wiretap members of the paparazzi.
