The Sebastiani Theatre Foundation continues its Vintage Film Series with classic movies showing one Monday each month, through June 2014, and this month’s offering at 7 p.m. Monday, March 10, is “Rain Man.”
Movie lovers of all ages now have the opportunity to experience these classic films the way they were meant to be seen – on the big screen. A fundraising effort by the Sebastiani Theatre Foundation, the Vintage Film Series brings some of the most memorable classic films back to the historic Sebastiani Theatre on the Sonoma Plaza.
“Rain Man” (1988), is directed by Barry Levinson and stars Dustin Hoffman, Tom Cruise and Valeria Golino. Written by Barry Morrow (story and screenplay) and Ronald Bass (screenplay), “Rain Man” is the story of two brothers, who journey across the country together – selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt and autistic savant Raymond, who is the heir to almost all of their father’s fortune. Rated R.
