Thirty years after Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan set the bar for romantic comedies, “When Harry Met Sally …” is still drawing audiences with a tale about whether men and women can ever be “just friends.”
The movie will screen in nearly 700 venues nationwide in the next week, including movie theaters in Londonderry, Newington, Hooksett and Merrimack.
Director Rob Reiner’s quintessential modern love story mixes heartbreak with humor, while lines from the movie — and the book written by the late Nora Ephron — have put some classic one-liners into the pop-culture lexicon.
In addition to Ryan and Crystal, “When Harry Met Sally …” also featured star turns by Bruno Kirby and the late Carrie Fisher.
Local Fathom Events screenings, which are part of the TCM Big Screen Classics series, will be at 4 and 7 p.m. both Sunday and Tuesday, Dec. 3, at AMC Londonderry 10, 16 Orchard Drive; 4 p.m. Sunday at Regal Fox Run Stadium 15, 45 Gosling Road, Newington; 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, at Cinematic and Imax Hooksett, 1226 Hooksett Road; and 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, at Cinemagic in Merrimack, 11 Executive Drive.
