Mike Nichols directed numerous great films, including The Graduate, The Birdcage, Carnal Knowledge and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills now pays homage to this true Hollywood icon during a one-day tribute, Honoring Mike Nichols. Based on Edward Albee's Tony-winning play, the 1966 film Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? was nominated for a record 13 Academy Awards. This blistering drama stars Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton as George and Martha, a middle-aged couple who invite a younger husband and wife over for drinks and, over the course of the evening, use their guests as pawns in increasingly cruel mind games that lead to a devastating revelation. Stay for a post-screening panel discussion focusing on The Graduate, featuring star Katharine Ross, the film's screenwriter Buck Henry and the film's producer, Larry Turman, moderated by Pete Hammond (Deadline Hollywood).
The free post-screening panel discussion begins at 4:30pm.
