The Long Goodbye (Elliott Gould In Person)(Sold Out)

This show is SOLD OUT. We will have a standby line for the extremely limited number of seats, if any, that may become available at showtime. Box office & doors open roughly one hour before showtime.

Elliott Gould will join us IN PERSON, schedule permitting, for a discussion at our January 30th screening of The Long Goodbye.

Elliott Gould is a rumpled, rambling version of Raymond Chandler’s Phillip Marlowe in The Long Goodbye, Robert Altman’s free-spirited adaptation of the iconic detective tale. A private eye out of time in the hippy Hollywood Hills of the early 70’s, Marlowe ingrains himself in a twisted mystery to save a long-time (and newlydead) friend’s reputation. Sterling Hayden co-stars as a neurotic, violent Hemingwayesque writer whose alcohol-addled memory may hold the key to Marlowe’s mystery.

“Raymond Chandler’s sentimental foolishness is the taking-off place for Robert Altman’s heady, whirling sideshow of a movie, set in the early-seventies L.A. of the stoned sensibility.” – Pauline Kael, The New Yorker

“Altman’s achievement has been to make a tough, funny, hugely entertaining movie that acknowledges its Chandler origins without ever turning into an anachronism… It’s an original work, complex without being obscure, visually breathtaking without seeming to be inappropriately fancy.” – Vincent Canby, The New York Times
