Wes Anderson's 'Hotel Chevalier' Premiering Today

Fans of Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums director Wes Anderson who live in or near NYC, Chicago, Santa Monica, or San Francisco, listen up: his short film Hotel Chevalier (which will be opening in front of The Darjeeling Limited at this year's New York Film Festival) will exclusively premiere in four select Apple stores today, September 25.

Hotelchevalierthumbnail_2 Hotel Chevalier is a short film set in a hotel room in France, starring Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman. It is the brief coda to a doomed romance, and the prologue to The Darjeeling Limited, but the short is not expected to be shown in theaters when The Darjeeling Limited is released.

Jeff Giles of Rotten Tomatoes reports:

Writer/Director Wes Anderson, actor Jason Schwartzman and actress Natalie Portman will appear in the Apple Store SoHo to introduce the film and host a short Q&A following the screening; Roman Coppola (co-writer, Darjeeling) will introduce the short at the Apple Store North Michigan Avenue (Chicago). The after hours events will also take place at the Apple Store Third Street Promenade (Santa Monica) and Apple Store San Francisco (Union Square). Beginning on September 26th, following the in-store premiere, Hotel Chevalier will be available as a free download exclusively on iTunes.Darjeelinglimited1

Guests interested in attending the in store events should hurry up and visit Apple.com for store event calendars for each location.
