Midnight In Paris
Step into a whimsical journey through time with “Midnight in Paris,” a captivating film set to enchant audiences at the Springer Square event in Kingston. Directed by the visionary Woody Allen, this delightful romantic comedy explores the magic that lies within the streets of Paris and the timeless allure of the past.

In the film, we follow the story of Gil Pender, a disillusioned Hollywood screenwriter played by Owen Wilson, who finds himself transported back to the 1920s every night at the stroke of midnight. Lost in the allure of this golden era, Gil encounters legendary figures from the world of art and literature, including Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Gertrude Stein.
