Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969)
d. Paul Mazurski
Elliot Gould, Natalie Wood, Robert Culp, Dyan Cannon

The Seattle Erotic Cinema Society monthly film event is this Thursday. We are so excited to present Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice on 35mm. When Roger Ebert reviewed the film, he correctly points out that “it isn’t really about wife swapping at all, but about the epidemic of moral earnestness that’s sweeping our society right now.” One reason Bob & Carol… remains relevant is that it is a sly comedy of manners about honesty in marriage. So while at times the film feels a bit dated, we still identify with Bob and Carol’s optimistic experimentation with open marriage and Ted and Alice’s discomfort with their friends’ improprieties.

So join us for an exploration of non-monogamy on the silver screen. The Stranger recommends it. And if you are still not convinced, there are all of the groovy 1960s fashions.

And for once, we are showing a completely non-explicit, Rated R, mainstream(ish) movie.
