It’s the 50th anniversary of Breakfast at Tiffany’s! To celebrate, the Seattle Art Museum is hosting a film series, starring Audrey Hepburn (1929–1993). Her charm and acting prowess have enchanted film lovers for decades. Her screen persona, personal style and heartfelt charity work made her a respected and imitated cultural icon. Even today, there are books on dressing and living like Audrey.
She worked with Hollywood’s best, from directors Billy Wilder and Blake Edwards to actors Gregory Peck, Humphrey Bogart and Cary Grant, and we can’t forget composer Henry Mancini’s Moon River. Many of Hepburn’s films project a chic, midcentury cool; if you’re a Parisian beatnik, a Roman scooter rider or just like to wear black Givenchy cocktail dresses, you’re more than welcome.
The upcoming Thursday night films include:
July 14: Sabrina
July 21: Funny Face
July 28: Breakfast at Tiffany’s
August 4: Charade
August 11: How to Steal a Million
