In anticipation for The Grand Budapest Hotel — a review of which will appear right here on SF Station bright and early on March 14 — the latest film from classic rock aficionado and saviour of Latin, Wes Anderson, San Francisco’s Roxie Theater will be hosting a retrospective of his filmography March 8 – 13. Not only will every film be screened in 35mm — fitting for the retro-inspired director — but every ticket buyer for any screening is automatically enrolled in the Zissou Society Members which affords each member a ticket to a sneak preview of a new film on March 13. What the surprise film is can’t be officially confirmed, suffice it to say that it may very well be the same film reviewed here on March 14.
Whether a fan of his entire filmography or just have a hankering to see Bill Murray squeeze into a wetsuit on the big screen, it’s the rare chance to see the genre-defying auteur’s work as it was originally intended to be seen.
