Wes’s World: HAROLD AND MAUDE on 35mm!


A classic of the much-mythologized New American Cinema of the 1970s, HAROLD AND MAUDE follows Harold (Bud Cort), a moneyed yet death-obsessed 19-year-old, and Maude (Ruth Gordon), a lively 79-year-old, who fall in love after meeting at a stranger’s funeral. Harold can’t enjoy life; his mother (Vivian Pickles) forces him into dates with women his own age, but he finds increasingly creative ways to shrug them off. Through a series of off-the-wall teachings, Maude shows Harold what it means to be happy and how to make the most of life. But as this unconventional relationship blooms and Harold announces his intention to marry Maude, one of her firmly held beliefs threatens to cut short their time together. (91 mins.)

HAROLD AND MAUDE screens Saturday, July 12 at 4:45pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our Wes’s World: Wes Anderson and His Influences series.
Tickets are available online or at the door.
