ABOUT THE FILM:
Annie Hall (Written and directed by Woody Allen | 1977 | 94 mins)
When most people hear the name Woody Allen, they think of two women: Soon-Yi and Annie Hall. Fortunately for Allen, his legacy in cinema had been cemented with the latter long before the former came along. With Oscar wins for best director, best picture and best actress for the radiantly quirky Diane Keaton, Annie Hall struck a chord with audiences outside of erudite Manhattan film houses-and with good reason. Sure, we get the standard dose of neurotic Woody-isms, but we also get a sweet, sad, hopeful tale that reminds us love is sweet, love is sad, and if we're lucky, love is downright funny.
The Coney Island History Project will be in attendance to speak about the history of Coney Island and the filming of Annie Hall.
