“Are you here for an affair?”

Newly remastered in 4K, Oscar-winning director Mike Nichols‘ landmark hit THE GRADUATE is a cultural phenomenon that captured the youthful essence of the late 60s in everything from its standout performances (including Dustin Hoffman’s remarkable breakthrough) and its brilliant soundtrack (from Simon & Garfunkel) – all of which makes for perfect viewing as part of the Rio Theatre‘s ongoing series of Summer Classics!

Benjamin Braddock (Hoffman) has just finished college and, back at his parents’ house, he’s trying to avoid the one question everyone keeps asking: What does he want to do with his life? An unexpected diversion crops up when he is seduced by Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), a bored housewife and friend of his parents. But what begins as a fun tryst turns complicated when Benjamin falls for the one woman Mrs. Robinson demanded he stay away from, her daughter, Elaine (Katharine Ross). Also starring Buck Henry.

“The music, the performances, the precision in capturing the post-college malaise — THE GRADUATE‘s coming-of-age story is indeed one for the ages.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

“Feels as sly, modern and bracing as it must have in 1967.” (Time Out)
