“Sleepless in Seattle”
Friday & Saturday, Oct. 14 & 15 | 7 p.m. | Orchestra Hall
Lakeside will feature the romantic comedy “Sleepless in Seattle” at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14 and Saturday, Oct. 15 for Sweetest Day weekend. Suggested donation for admission.

After the death of his wife, Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) moves to Seattle with his son, Jonah (Ross Mallinger). When Jonah calls in to a talk-radio program to find a new wife for his father, Sam grudgingly gets on the line to discuss his feelings. Annie Reed (Meg Ryan), a reporter in Baltimore, hears Sam speak and falls for him, even though she is engaged. Unsure where it will lead, she writes Sam a letter asking him to meet her at the Empire State Building on Valentine’s Day. (PG 1h 45m)
