What a strange and wonderful discovery—a shot-on-location-in-Maine Hollywood film from the 1940s—and a pretty darn good one! In that era, Hollywood very rarely shot films on location, using studio and Southern California settings for the far corners of the earth. Yet, 20th Century Fox sent stars Dana Andrews and Jean Peters, director Henry King and company Down East to shoot all of the… Continued

In five two-part screenings of two hours, every one entirely viewable independently of the others. If you are familiar with the profound, gorgeous, ironic, brilliant work of Krzysztof Kieslowski, you have perhaps seen his staggering ultimate work, the Three Colors trilogy from the 1990s: Blue, White, and Red, all three made in France, as was his other equally justly famed late work, The… Continued

New 35mm Restoration! “Darker and chillier than a storm drain at midnight, this expertly-crafted thriller from directors Alfred Werker and Anthony Mann, screenwriters John Higgins and Crane Wilbur, and cinematographic master John Alton represents one of the strongest semi-documentary/police procedural noirs…. The film’s no-frills parallel narrative is divided between hunters and hunted—the L.A.P.D. and a coolly calculating electronics expert/cop killer, respectively. Sought by… Continued

New digital restoration! “Melville’s style is at one with his substance—hard, cold, illusionless, yet presented with such panache that against all expectation, it breeds joy” — Anthony Lane, The New Yorker. Michael Sragow (also in The New Yorker, but much earlier) called Le Cercle Rouge, Jean-Pierre Melville’s mesmerizing and diamond-hard robbery film, “a deluxe piece of heist engineering,” and praised the director’s characteristically… Continued

New 35mm restoration! Marlon Brando’s one and only film as a director (and yes, he also stars—does he ever!) is this unconventional 1961 western (originally planned for and by Stanley Kubrick) which notched cinematographer Charles Lang an Oscar nomination. Brando plays Rio, an embittered anti-hero sold down the river by his bank-robbing partner, Dad (Karl Malden). Years later, Rio escapes from the prison… Continued

Experience the mysteries and revelations of Andrei Tarkovsky’s (Solaris) 1979 science fiction masterpiece in a new digital restoration! Almost 40 years after its creation, Stalker looks profoundly prophetic—as well as metaphysically poetic. Twenty years ago, a falling object decimated a provincial Russian town, and those who later went near the crash site— now known as The Zone disappeared. Access is strictly prohibited, but… Continued

New 35mm restoration! “‘The Lubitsch Touch’ is a brief description that embraces a long list of virtues: sophistication, style, subtlety, wit, charm, elegance, suavity, polished nonchalance, and audacious sexual nuance”— Richard Christiansen. When thief Gaston Monescu meets his true love in pickpocket Lily, they embark on a scam to rob lovely perfume company executive Mariette Colet. But when Gaston becomes romantically entangled with… Continued

New digital restoration! A ghost story, a deeply felt appreciation of women, a work of cinematic beauty and poeticism of the most sublime order, Ugetsu is the masterpiece of Kenji Mizoguchi, who eclipses even Kurosawa as the greatest of all Japanese filmmakers. By the time he made Ugetsu, Mizoguchi was already an elder statesman of Japanese cinema, fiercely revered by Kurosawa and other… Continued
