Good news for our East Coast (US) friends: Audrey Hepburn may be coming to a big screen near you! I’d previously mentioned LA’s upcoming screening of Roman Holiday, and now those on the opposite coast have a chance to do the same. So far I’ve found two screenings in New York, and a library in Maine that’s having a whole month of Audrey for you.
The George Eastman Museum in Rochester, NY is having brunch with Roman Holiday at 10 am on Sunday, February 11th, which sounds quite nice. You will have to make a reservation for brunch. The tickets for both the meal and film are $45 each, but if you’re feeling more of a Joe Bradley than a Princess Ann these days, you may also just purchase a regular admission ticket for the movie only.

Meanwhile, on the same day in NYC, the United Palace of Cultural Arts is hosting a screening of My Fair Lady at 5 pm. As an option, you could choose to partake in a 30 minute pre-show that starts at 4:30 with an introduction by BroadwayWorld correspondent Richard Ridge, as well as live renditions of some of the songs featured in the film, as sung by Mark William. You can find more information, as well as buy tickets, by clicking here.
And finally, for our friends in Maine, you get a whole month of Audrey, for free! The Thomaston Public Library has a Friday night film series, and February is all about Audrey. Coming this Friday (February 9) is one of my favorites, Charade, which would be great fun to see on the big screen. The following Friday is Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and for the last Friday in this short month, you can see Sabrina. All films start at 6:30 pm, and all are open to the public and free!
