Midday Movies: Brighton Beach Memoirs

Wed, February 5, 2020 1:00 pm - 2:50 pm


Share the delight of (re-)discovering a classic film and, if interested,

stay after and chat with others about the film, life, whatever!

 Jewish-American playwright, screenwriter and author, Neil Simon wrote more than 30 plays and nearly the same number of movie screenplays, mostly adaptations of his plays. He received more combined Oscar and Tony nominations than any other writer. His style ranged from romantic comedy to farce to more serious dramatic comedy. Overall, he garnered 17 Tony nominations and won three. During one season, he had four successful plays running on Broadway at the same time, and in 1983 became the only living playwright to have a New York theatre, the “Neil Simon Theater,” named in his honor.

 Today, join others for Neil Simon’s autobiographical comedy

Brighton Beach Memoirs

 Eugene Jerome (Jonathan Silverman) is a Jewish teen living in an unusually hectic Brooklyn, N.Y., household. His father (Bob Dishy) works two jobs, his mother (Blythe Danner) is a professional worrywart and his widowed aunt (Judith Ivey) has moved in, bringing her two daughters (Stacey Glick, Lisa Waltz). Amidst the constant hurly-burly, Jerome dreams of someday becoming a famous writer, but admits that, in the meantime, he'd settle for seeing his first naked woman.

 The film is expected to run 1:00-2:50pm.
