The Graduate


The Lincoln Theatre presents The Graduate 09/16/2017 at 7:30PM. "One word: plastics." Our Spectacular, Spectacular Film Series of Visually Stunning Films continues with The Graduate (1967), 50th Anniversary Restoration. Mentally adrift the summer after graduating from college, suburbanite Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) would rather float in his parents' pool than follow adult advice about his future. But the exhortation of family friend Mr. Robinson (Murray Hamilton) to seize every possible opportunity inspires Ben to accept an offer of sex from icily feline Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft). The affair and the pool are all well and good until Ben is pushed to go out with the Robinsons' daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross) and he falls in love with her.
