A Tribute to Tony Roberts

Standby line will form at 6:30

(1977, Woody Allen) “Annie and I broke up, and I still can’t get my mind around that,” admits Woody Allen’s Alvy Singer, and while Diane Keaton’s Annie stammers, laughs nervously, and lah-dee-dahs, he looks back on his difficulties with women, while pal Tony Roberts offers advice on the sidelines. Woody’s critical breakthrough, achieving real poignance and feeling amidst the hilarity, and the elegant visual style that would now be consistent throughout, in his first collaborations with the great cameraman Gordon Willis (The Godfather). Oscars for Best Picture, Director, Actress, and screenplay, plus Woody’s only acting nomination. 35mm. Approx. 133 mins.

Following the screening, actor/producer John Martello will interview Annie Hall co-star Tony Roberts about his long theater, television, and film career, including his seven roles for Woody Allen. 


“A signal work of first-person cinematic modernism.”
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“SUBLIME COMIC DRAMA! Bask in the tricky balance of hilarity and melancholy.”
– Time Out

“A pair of compatible insecurities, Keaton and Allen are the romantic couple of the seventies.”
– Molly Haskell
