Listen up, American movie fans.

Until the end of this month and into the beginning of March, you can revisit (or acquaint yourself, perhaps) with the super-stylized worlds of America’s most beloved auteur.

The Film Society of Minneapolis/St. Paul is holding a retrospective of Wes Anderson’s work, featuring six of his films. Tickets for all “Director’s Series” screenings — which will be held at the St. Anthony Main Theatre and the Parkway Theater — will be $5. (A screening schedule is at the bottom of this post.)

To top off the series, film society members will have the pleasure of attending a free, advance screening of Anderson’s latest work, The Grand Budapest Hotel. More information about that can be found here.

This retrospective on Anderson comes at the heels of Philip Seymour Hoffman Week, which is currently on-going. Screenings of The Master will run until Thursday, for those interested in celebrating the talent our world has recently, tragically lost.
