“Annie Hall” kicks off classic screening series

Woody Allen’s classic romantic comedy screens tonight in San Luis Obispo

Before “Sleepless in Seattle” and “Say Anything,” before “Pretty Woman” and “When Harry Met Sally,” there was “Annie Hall.”

Woody Allen’s classic romantic comedy centers around the relationship between standup comedian Alvy Singer (Allen), whose numerous neurosis can be traced to his bizarre childhood on Coney Island, and Annie Hall (Diane Keaton), the jazz singer who steals his heart.

He’s a Jew. She’s a WASP. He’s intellectual, obsessive and frequently pessimistic. She’s delightfully ditsy.

Yet despite all their differences, they make quite a pair.

“Annie Hall” screens at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Fremont movie theater, 1025 Monterey St. in San Luis Obispo. Admission is $8.

It’s all part of the Screening Room Classics screening series, which kicked off late last month with “The African Queen.”

Screening Room Classics continues Sept. 25 with “Jaws.”The rest of the screening series is as follows:

  • Oct. 9: “Taxi Driver”
  • Oct. 23: “Psycho”
  • Nov. 6: “The Graduate”
  • Nov. 20: “Rear Window”
  • Dec. 4: “Shane”
  • Dec. 18: “It’s a Wonderful Life”
