Check Out Somewhere In Time For Free This Weekend At The International Museum Of Art
One of my favorite movies of all time is Somewhere in Time. If you read my posts about movies at the International Museum of Art, you know I say that a lot, but in each case, it is true. This movie with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour is no different. I really love this movie.
Somewhere in Time was released in 1980 and it pretty much flew under the radar. There was an actor's strike going on at the time so there was very little promotion of the film, and even though Christopher Reeve had made a huge splash a couple of years earlier with Superman the Movie, this movie seemed like a bit of a step down for him. But it wasn't. It is an amazing movie.
Reeve plays Richard Collier, a playwright, who becomes obsessed with the photo of a stage actress, Elise McKenna, from 1910. Problem is, Richard lives in the 1970s. He reads a book about time travel and goes to the Grand Hotel, the last place Elise acted in a play, and travels back in time. Of course Richard and Elise fall in love. Their happiness is hampered by her crazy jealous manager played by Christopher Plummer. He knows there is something off about Richard and has him beaten up so that he can spirit Elise away from Richard.
That's all I'm going to tell you about the movie. If you've seen it, you know how the story ends. If you haven't, you should go see this movie. It is a beautiful love story and it wraps up the month of love stories at the International Museum of Art. The movie is free and they have fantastically priced concessions so you can take your honey and probably only spend about $20 for the whole afternoon.
Make sure you check out the rest of the museum after the movie. It's gorgeous.
