‘Prime Lois Smith – A Retrospective’ Hits Quad Cinema December 12

One of this year’s great cinematic stories centers on the deeper appreciation of Lois Smith’s work. The 87-year-old actress has received acclaim for her work in Marjorie Prime (and she’s also great playing a forgiving nun in Lady Bird), and now the Quad Cinema is hosting ‘Prime Lois Smith – A Retrospective.” A 35mm print of East of Eden tops off the celebration December 12 – more details after the jump!!

Lois Smith - East of Eden

The films that will be featured in the retrospective are (Lois Smith will be in attendance for all the screenings):

Tuesday, December 12: East of Eden and Next Stop, Greenwich Village
Wednesday, December 13: Five Easy Pieces and Foxes
Thursday, December 14: Marjorie Prime and Five Easy Pieces

***It’s also great to know that Smith, at age 87, has just joined Twitter and she’s already a better Tweeter than I am (but that’s setting a rather low bar):


Do you have a favorite Lois Smith performance (I’m partial to her work on True Blood)? Feel free to comment below!!
