Manhattan

  • Templeton Hall 63 Pioneer Street Cooperstown, NY, 13326 United States (map)

“New York was his town, and it always would be…” Manhattan, possibly the greatest paean to a hometown ever made by a filmmaker, catches the city’s bravado, its chaotic clatter, egocentric quirks, and robust beauty—all the stuff that makes New York so endearing and enduring, as only a native New Yorker could grasp. It’s the late 1970s, in many ways an idealized and innocent era, and the lyricism of both Allen’s direction and Gershwin’s music merge to form a true city symphony. Recently treated to a 4K restoration from original camera negative, the digital print sets off Gordon Willis’s classic cinematography like never before, bringing to new life a town that has “always existed in black and white.” Sponsored by Brewery Ommegang (Woody Allen, 1979, USA, 96 minutes)
