When: Sun., Nov. 27, 2 & 7 p.m. and Wed., Nov. 30, 2 & 7 p.m. 2016
If the strife of the past month has you down and the stress of the impending holiday season feels like too much too soon, just do what generations of Americans have done: Hide out in a movie theater with an old friend. Blake Edwards' classic romantic comedy Breakfast at Tiffany's returns to big screens at 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday and Wednesday (November 27 and 30) thanks to Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events. Audrey Hepburn plays socialite party girl Holly Golightly, who dreams of easy wealth, which she hopes to achieve by attaching herself to a fabulously rich older man. George Peppard is Paul Varjak, a frustrated writer who has his own financial arrangement with an older woman. When Paul and Holly meet, sparks fly. Neither of them are happy with their lives, but maybe they could be if they were together — if only one of them was rich. And sure, Mickey Rooney's turn as a Japanese neighbor is an embarrassing, unfunny racist caricature, but when he shows up on screen, just visit the concession stand. You can see Breakfast at Tiffany's locally at Wehrenberg Ronnies 20 Cine (5329 South Lindbergh Boulevard; www.fathomevents.com). Tickets are $10 to $12.50.
