PIERMONT, N.Y. -- Critics hailed Woody Allen's "The Purple Rose of Cairo" when it was released in 1985.
Now, 30 years later, the village in which many of its scenes were shot will celebrate the film's achievements.
With an exhibition of photographs by Sally Savage documenting the film and a public art installation curated by Nyack-based artist Kris Burns, Piermont will begin its celebration at 1 p.m. Sunday.
Events include a roundtable discussion with several people who worked on the film alongside village officials who witnessed the filming firsthand.
The film is set during the Great Depression. Spread throughout the event will be photographs of Piermont from that era. Vintage cars will be on display and a flashmob featuring dancers in period clothing will be organized.
The showing of the film is scheduled for 6 p.m. after a champagne toast.
