HOLLYWOOD GOES TO PARIS: Dinner & Double Feature (Gigi & Love In The Afternoon)

Join us for a fun evening with a touch of Paris! We'll be seeing two 1950s Hollywood-goes-to-Paris films -- Gigi and Love In The Afternoon -- and having dinner beforehand at the Crepevine, a French-style café. (Well, they serve crêpes so it qualifies for French cuisine!)


Gigi (1957): Weary of the conventions of Parisian society, a rich playboy and a youthful courtesan-in-training enjoy a platonic friendship, but it may not stay platonic for long. (MGM, 115 minutes) For more information, see

Love in the Afternoon (1958): In Paris, the daughter (Hepburn) of a private detective (Chevalier) gets comically and romantically involved with an older, American playboy (Cooper) -- much to the chagrin of her father! Ignoring the fact that Cooper was twice Hepburn's age..., this may well be Billy Wilder's sweetest, most charming film -- with only hints of the classic, Wilder cynicism. It's a triple Valentine to: Hepburn, the City of Lights, and Wilder's comedic master, Ernst Lubitsch. (Allied Artists, 130 minutes) For more information, see


DATE: Sunday, July 8, 2012

TIME: First show starts at 7:30 p.m. Dinner is at 5:30 p.m.

CINEMA: The Stanford Theatre

If you're only attending the double feature, meet Belinda about 7:15 p.m. on the lower part of the balcony, in the center (or wherever balcony seating is available) at the Stanford Theatre. She is very short and will be wearing a bright pink cap.

DINNER BEFORE SHOW: If you're attending dinner, meet Belinda at 5:30 p.m. at the Crepevine café. Enjoy good, reasonably-priced food (large portions!) and great conversation with a wonderful group of people. The café is located at 367 University Avenue in Palo Alto. You can view the menu at http://www.crepevine....

Please indicate in your RSVP comment whether you will attend dinner.

PARKING: Parking is easy if you use the surface lots near University Avenue or garages under City Hall, NOLA/Old Pro, or parking structures at Bryant near Lytton, or on High, just south of University Avenue. There is also street parking in various locations.

    I really appreciate Belinda's organizational and socializing skills. She's very good about introducing everyone, and the movies she selects are worth watching.
