Harold and Maude

This event will take place at The Silent Movie Theater, located at 611 N. Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036.

“Harold is death, Maude life, and they manage to make the two seem so similar that life’s hardly worth the extra bother.” —Roger Ebert

“Harold is a young man who doesn’t want to live. Maude is an older woman who has a talent for living. They meet at a funeral and the fun begins there. The quirky and intelligent Hal Ashby (Being There, Coming Home) made a poignant, romantic film that wasn’t initially a hit but became the very definition of a cult classic” (Greg Proops). This heavy dose of black comedy and romantic existentialism is a must in the midnight-canon.

Dir. Hal Ashby, 1971, 35mm, 91 min.
