"It’s not the size of the nose that matters, it’s what’s inside that counts!"

ROXANNE (1987)

Part of a double feature with ICEMAN, Tonight - 8:00PM Aero Theatre

Steve Martin was never better than as long-nosed Colorado fire chief C.D. Bales in this sparkling update of Cyrano de Bergerac. Daryl Hannah is the titular beauty who catches the eye of a rookie fireman (Rick Rossovich) reliant on Bales’ way with words for his love letters to her. Martin penned the screenplay to this charming romantic comedy, among the best of the 1980s - the film’s barroom challenge to devise 20 nose jokes is just one example of the writer-star’s razor-sharp wit.

35mm print.
