As our film technology has grown ever-more impressive, some of Hollywood’s most iconic films have started to get the remastering treatment. While some might argue for maintaining the sanctity of the original, it’s undeniable that seeing an older film touched up to more perfectly match the original vision of the director can be a cool experience for a movie buff. On March 10th, Woody Allen fans will get to do just that, as a 4K remaster of his classic film Manhattan will be screened at New York City’s legendary Film Forum.
Film Forum is one of New York’s most beloved independent film theaters, the perfect place to watch the beautiful skylines and bright lights of Manhattan’s 1970’s New York be brought back to life in stunning 4K resolution. The film will be screening from March 10th — March 21st, and then later on in the year at to-be-announced film festivals, so if you’re in or around NYC during that time, do yourself a favor and RSVP as soon as you can, because seats for these screenings are sure to be scarce.
Allen, of course, needs no introduction. Love and Death, Bananas, Annie Hall, Stardust Memories, Blue Jasmine, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, the list goes on. Allen’s name has become synonymous with Hollywood film, and Manhattan has become synonymous with the era that it captured, a nostalgic, inspiring and genuine 70’s New York City. One of the screenings, on Monday, March 13th at 7 p.m., will also feature Allen’s genre-defining romantic comedy Annie Hall, so these events are not to be missed!
Indiewire released a remastered trailer for the film last week, which you can check out below. Also below is a list of screening times which, again, will be taking place from March 10th to March 21st; Tickets can be bought at this link.
