- Fri-Sun, Sep 20-22Dir. Woody Allen, USA, 1973, 89 min., PG, 35mm
Part of Weekend Classics: Woody Allen.
Health food store owner Miles Monroe (Woody Allen, who also directs) bites the dust in 1973 and ends up cryogenically frozen, only to be defrosted in a dystopian future in which people pleasure themselves with an "orgasmatron" and dissidents' brains are "electronically simplified." Upon becoming a hunted man, Miles masquerades as an android butler in the home of a self-indulgent poet (Diane Keaton)—but the ruse doesn't last.
