Wes Anderson’s Worlds

May 18 — May 27, 2012

At first glance, Wes Anderson’s films may seem whimsical—like fancifully designed supertoys. But within the colorful, beautifully realized worlds that Anderson creates on screen, there is surprising

depth and emotional resonance. On the occasion of his new film, Moonrise Kingdom, which Focus Features releases on May 25, here is a chance to see Anderson’s feature films on the big screen,

along with Orson Welles’s The Magnificent Ambersons, a movie that inspired him. And as an exclusive treat for Moving Image audiences, Anderson has created a video introduction for each of the films.
