Celebrate the golden anniversary of this groundbreaking 1967 comedy classic by watching it again on the big screen! A fixture of best movie lists, the film stars Dustin Hoffman as a disillusioned college graduate who wrestles with life decisions while balancing a relationship with the older Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft) and her daughter (Katharine Ross). It features the remarkable Simon & Garfunkel soundtrack and was nominated for seven Academy Awards. Following the screening, join us for a discussion about this unexpected cultural phenomenon with Beverly Gray, author of Seduced by Mrs. Robinson: How The Graduate Became the Touchstone of a Generation. This book puts the movie in historical context and offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look into the making of this iconic film, including newly-revealed factoids, while explaining why it has had such a lasting impact on popular culture.
