“When Harry Met Sally,” a sentimental favorite @tybeepost Thurs. @7

By Jim Reed/SMN

Welcome back, friends. I hope Hurricane Irma treated all local Film Scene readers (and their property) with lenience. It certainly wreaked havoc on a number of alternative cinema events in our area over the past couple of weeks, as some of you may have noticed.

A number of screenings had to be canceled due to the inclement weather and/or the threat of such things (which necessitated certain venues closing their doors to properly secure them in advance of Chatham County’s evacuation).

First up, on Sept. 21, Tybee Post Theater’s ongoing Girls’ Night Out series of weepy, relationship-driven popcorn flicks continues with a one-night-only engagement of director Rob “Stand By Me” Reiner’s 1989 dramedy “When Harry Met Sally,” starring Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan as lifelong best friends who can’t seem to figure out if they’re destined for a strictly platonic pairing or if they should attempt to be romantic partners. Written by Nora Ephron (“Silkwood,” “Sleepless in Seattle”) and openly based on elements of Reiner’s own life, it is a sentimental favorite of all sorts of people. The American Film Institute ranked it the 23rd best comedy motion picture ever made in this country. Admission to this 7 p.m. show includes a glass of wine (if you’re of age) and a pack of tissues for the inevitable weeping.
