20th Anniversary Screening! Q&A with Whit Stillman and actors Chloë Sevigny, Michael Weatherly, and Mackenzie Astin. Complimentary beer will be available for all attendees beginning at 6:30pm.
This late-nineties American independent treasure follows the romantic and professional misadventures of a group of twenty-something college graduates navigating the currents of early-80s New York nightlife. Buoyed by writer-director Whit Stillman’s wryly affectionate gaze and a deft ensemble cast led by Chloë Sevigny and Kate Beckinsale, the film is a charming ode to a receded cultural tide, memorialized from the vantage point of wistful midlife and millennial nostalgia. Twenty years after its premiere, The Last Days of Disco endures for how it captures the peculiar ache of quarter-life growing pains and the exhilarating melancholy that comes with the end of an era.
