The Palm Springs Art Museum will be screening free films every Thursday evening in their Annenberg Theater during this summer. The first 10 films were shown as part of 2012 Global Lens series, organized by the Global Lens Initiative. The Global Lens series seeks to screen films from countries that are not typically known for filmmaking and feature new directors.
Now, the Palm Springs Art Museum is currently screening the second series of films as the Classic Comedy Series shown in a joint partnership with the Palm Springs International Film Society. This Thursday September 6, the film “Annie Hall,” from 1977 will be shown free to the public. The film stars Woody Allen, Diane Keaton and Tony Roberts.
In “Annie Hall,” opposites attract (and do battle with live lobsters) when neurotic New Yorker Alvy Singer (Woody Allen) meets neurotic Midwesterner Annie Hall (Diane Keaton).
“Annie Hall” is rated PG and has a run time of 1 hour and 33 minutes.
Place: The Palm Springs Art Museum, Annenberg Theater, 101 North Museum Drive, Palm Springs, CA 92262
Time: seating begins at 4 p.m. and the film starts at 6 p.m.
Seats are available on a first come, first served basis.

Whatever your movie choice this week, please remember your movie theater etiquette: silence your cell phones & no texting, please don’t talk during the film and remove your children if they become a distraction to other audience members. Don’t forget that laughing, crying and cheering are always approved behavior and even encouraged.
