Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan and The Last Days of Disco will be playing at The Metrograph December 1-4.
Quentin Tarantino seems to be a fan of Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan. Tarantino saw Metropolitan in the original run and then bought the laserdisc. It is likely he still watches it to this day (IndieWire: Quentin Tarantino Prefers VHS Over Netflix). Add Tarantino to the list of film giants (Kubrick included) who dig Stillman’s work.
Catch Metropolitan at the Debartolo Performing Arts Center on Saturday, November 9th at 3pm.
Whit Stillman will be at Notre Dame on Saturday, November 9th at 8pm for:

The Paris Theatre in Manhattan has unfortunately shut its doors. Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan played in NYC for 7 months and made 1/3 of its gross there (according to Whit Stillman’s interview on The Official Podcast). The minute mark when he talks about the theatrical run and gross is 13:30.
