George Segal Tribute 

We are excited to add these entertaining films to this year’s roster in honor of the talented and innately likable actor George Segal, who passed away in March. Perhaps best remembered for his Oscar-nominated dramatic role in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Segal became a familiar comic actor in film and on television, with many notable film roles to his credit. “I’m like a cork in the water, aren’t I?” Segal observed in 1998. “I keep bobbing up in all sorts of places, although I never know in advance where or when.”

An affair between a married American businessman (Segal) who “has never cheated on his wife…in the same town” and a competent, intelligent British dress designer (Glenda Jackson, who won the Best Actress Oscar for this role) does not run entirely smoothly. Funny and charming, this romantic comedy with a bittersweet edge benefits from Segal and Jackson’s strong chemistry, buoyed by a witty script.

Tickets: $11 (members), $16 (nonmembers)

“A sharp-edged, often very funny dissection of a love affair between two possibly incompatible people.”
