The king of comedy will appear in person following a screening of his film, “Max Rose” hosted by the American Cinematheque at the Aero Theatre.
Professional pianist Max Rose (Jerry Lewis) takes pride in his long career but even greater joy in his marriage to Eva (Claire Bloom). He is devastated when she dies – and torn by doubt when he discovers an intimate gift from another man among her effects. Kevin Pollak, Mort Sahl and Dean Stockwell costar in this beautiful story of lifelong love, which features a score by Morgan Z. Whirledge and the song “Hurry Home” by Michel Legrand and Alan & Marilyn Bergman.
In person: Jerry Lewis
A Lewis retrospective, “Jerry Lewis to the Max,” rolls out, as perfect end-of-summer fodder. Take the kids!
