Delightful Streak: A Two-Day Tribute to Arthur Hiller



This is an Aero Theatre Exclusive!


After a successful career in Canadian television, director Arthur Hiller moved on to Hollywood and the cinema and created some of the most beloved films of his era. Known for a broad array of comedies including trenchant satires (THE HOSPITAL, THE AMERICANIZATION OF EMILY), stage adaptations (PLAZA SUITE), and action-filled farces (THE IN-LAWS, SILVER STREAK), Hiller also directed one of the greatest tearjerkers in history, LOVE STORY. In a career spanning 50 years and dozens of films, Hiller has proven himself to be one of Hollywood's most reliable entertainers. Join us for a two-night tribute to the director that includes double features of his funniest comedies.

We are thrilled to welcome director Arthur Hiller to the Aero Theatre!

Thursday, February 4 - 7:30 PM

Double Feature: THE IN-LAWS, 1979, Warner Bros., 103 min. Dir. Arthur Hiller. Giant tse-tse flies, the Bay of Pigs, dictators with talking hands, and flames on your car: one of the laugh-out-loud funniest movies of the past 25 years stars Alan Arkin as a middle-class dentist who finds himself thrown together with delusional CIA agent Peter Falk when their children decide to get married. Serpentine, Shel, serpentine!!

SILVER STREAK, 1976, 20th Century Fox, 114 min. Director Arthur Hiller’s action comedy was the first of four team-ups by comedy giants Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder. Bored book publisher George Caldwell (Wilder) finds romance and murder with Hilly Burns (Jill Clayburgh) on a cross-country bullet train from Los Angeles to Chicago. Wilder befriends thief Grover Muldoon (Pryor) to get help fighting the murderers and saving Hilly. Discussion in between films with director Arthur Hiller.

Friday, February 5 - 7:30 PM

Double Feature: THE OUT OF TOWNERS, 1970, Paramount, 98 min. Dir. Arthur Hiller. Likable Midwesterners Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis get more than they bargain for when they take a trip to New York and experience an unending string of catastrophes over the course of three days. Neil Simon scripted this classic comedy, which makes lost luggage and canceled hotel reservations, diverted flights and missed trains, and even muggings and hostile cops surprisingly amusing.

PLAZA SUITE, 1971, Paramount, 114 min. Director Arthur Hiller's second Neil Simon adaptation is a hilarious collection of three stories, each set in New York's Plaza Hotel and each starring Walter Matthau - in three different roles! The episodes follow Matthau as a man having an affair with his secretary, as a sleazy Hollywood producer, and as the father of a nervous bride-to-be; all three characters provide insights into relationships that are both funny and true. Discussion in between films with director Arthur Hiller.
