Join us Friday, November 28th for a one-night-only screening of two classic Wes Anderson films, Rushmore and the Royal Tenenbaums, both shown in glorious 35mm. Presented by Spoke Art gallery, this special event closes out their month long Wes Anderson themed art exhibit, on view at their Sutter street gallery from November 1st – 22nd.
A selection of limited edition posters will be available for purchase at this event.
Max Fischer is a precocious 15-year-old whose reason for living is his attendance at Rushmore, a private school where he’s not doing well in any of his classes, but where he’s the king of extracurricular activities – from being in the beekeeping society to writing and producing plays, there’s very little after school he doesn’t do. His life begins to change, however, when he finds out he’s on academic probation, and when he stumbles into love with Miss Cross, a pretty teacher of the elementary school at Rushmore. Added to the mix is his friendship with Herman Blume, wealthy industrialist and father to boys who attend the school, and who also finds himself attracted to Miss Cross. Max’s fate becomes inextricably tied to this odd love triangle, and how he sets about resolving it is the story in the film.
