Movie Night: Meta Romance Edition - The Purple Rose of Cairo

Photo of a film reel.

Thursday, February 19, 6:30 p.m.

The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985) Color, 82 min. PG. D: Woody Allen. If you're tired of conventional rom-coms, refresh yourself with this charming anti-romance Mia Farrow stars as a depression-era waitress who escapes her dull life and turbulent marriage by obsessively watching romance pictures. She is particularly taken with an exotic Egyptian-set romance picture called The Purple Rose of Cairo, whose star (Jeff Daniels) begins to take an interest in Farrow and in life in "the real world," off the silver screen. Allen explores issues of reality, film, fame, and whether romantic love could really exist in real life like it does in the movies. In Appleton Auditorium.
