“Meet me in Montauk.” Anyone who loves Michael Gondry‘s magnificent Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind knows how important that single piece of dialogue is when it’s whispered into Jim Carrey‘s ear by Kate Winslet, and next month fans will have the opportunity to meet in Montauk themselves for an unbelievable, special screening of the film in honor of Focus Features’ 15th anniversary.
Alamo Drafthouse has announced “Meet Me in Montauk,” a celebration of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind featuring a screening of the film in Montauk, outdoors, on the beach, in bed.
