With a career spanning over six decades, Harry Dean Stanton was beloved for his weathered face, easy tenor voice, and candid approach to acting and life. Though his death in September was a blow to film lovers everywhere, Harry’s work is preserved in hundreds of films to be felt and appreciated by future generations. In December, MFA Film remembers this American legend with a survey of his acting work—in roles big and small.

On December 14, join us for a screening of «Pretty in Pink,» starring Molly Ringwald as high schooler Andie, who is forced to make a controversial choice between her quirky classmate Duckie (Jon Cryer) and popular kid Blane (Andrew McCarthy)—one that still sparks passionate debates among viewers some 30 years later. The casting of a raggedy indie actor like Harry Dean Stanton in the role of Andie’s father is a little surprising, given the film’s status as a mainstream teen favorite, but Stanton brings a signature sadness to the role that gives depth to the entire film.

In the month of December, bring a ticket stub from any MFA film screening to Coolidge Corner Theatre for a $3 discount on regularly priced feature films, subject to availability.
