“The Long Goodbye”: Michigan Theater.
(Robert Altman, 1973). Neo-noir film co-written by Altman with Raymond Chandler in which Chandler’s iconic PI Philip Marlowe, played by Elliott Gould, is under suspicion for the murder of his buddy’s wife. The story’s period was moved from the 1949 of Chandler’s original novel to 1970s Hollywood. Not initially well-received, the film was later embraced by Pauline Kael and other influential critics. Mask and proof of vaccination (or negative Covid test within 72 hours) required for all patrons over the age of 12. Tickets $10.50 unless otherwise noted (children under 12, students, seniors age 65 & older, & U.S. veterans, $8.50; MTF members, $8) in advance online (recommended) & at the door.
