Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan continues to play across the country. It is supposed to open in Chicago and some other cities as well (according to an interview with Stillman). See if you can check out the UHBs in your town.
Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan once played for 7 months in NYC and now it’s playing for 7 days to celebrate its 25th anniversary. Metropolitan will be playing in Manhattan, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C. in early August.

It is no surprise to me that Vanity Fair chose Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan as one of the top ten films about Manhattan. Stillman’s first film (Oscar Nominated) captured things you can no longer find in Manhattan, including checker cabs and the Automat. It is a timeless film that is so rich with amazing dialogue, that it can be watched over and over. Metropolitan also played for seven months in NYC and is coming out again this August to celebrate 25 years.
