Deconstructing VIRGINIA WOOLF: A Master Class in Screen Direction

Egyptian Theatre

6712 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

7:30pm

***Please Note: We will not be watching WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? in its entirety. Seminar attendees are encouraged to view the entire film in advance of attending the seminar.***

Let’s recap:

Last October, we breathed new life into a devil baby in Roman Polanski’s diabolical masterpiece, ROSEMARY’S BABY (1968).

In January, we reopened a surreal film noir investigation in David Lynch’s BLUE VELVET (1986).

In April, we took a mind numbing ride with Travis Bickel in Martin Scorsese’s TAXI DRIVER (1976).

Now, for an evening of pure cinematic permissiveness, we cordially invite you to join the fun and games with George and Martha, (America’s true first couple - screw the Washingtons!) as we sink ourselves into Mike Nichols’ film adaptation of Edward Albee’s WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? (1966) - the fourth in our continuing series of American Cinematheque deconstructing master classes.
