First Monday Movies - The Long Goodbye - December 6th

A thoroughly eccentric version of author Raymond Chandler’s novel bearing the indelible stamp of maverick director Robert Altman. Smart-aleck, cat-loving private eye Philip Marlowe (Elliott Gould) is certain that his friend Terry Lennox isn't a wife-killer, even after the cops throw Marlowe in jail for not cooperating with their investigation. Marlowe starts his own search for the missing Lennox when he discovers that the mysterious Eileen Wade (Nina Van Pallandt), who hired him to find her alcoholic novelist husband Roger (Sterling Hayden), coincidently lives on the same Malibu street as Lennox. (1973/112 mins)

Excelsior Salon - Vincent Van Gogh - November 17th

Vincent Van Gogh and the Post-Impressionist Movement

Marlene Aron presents the life and art of Vincent Van Gogh, whose intense passion for people and the land drove him to create some of the most beautiful, vibrant, and deeply-felt art ever seen. He, along with Paul Cézanne, Emile Bernard, Toulouse-Lautrec and Paul Gauguin, responded, through their art, to the world in ways that had never been done before and journeyed into a realm of personal expression that was to become the Post-Impressionist Movement. This event coincides with the de Young Museum exhibition: Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne and Beyond: Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay.

Wednesday, November 17th @ 7 p.m.
