Sat, Jun 15, 2013 - Fri, Jun 21, 2013

Born in 1922 in northwestern France, Alain Resnais developed an early love of literature, theater and surrealism, all of which would play significant roles in his work. His feature debut, 1959’s HIROSHIMA, MON AMOUR, announced the arrival of a major talent; its nonlinear structure had a major influence on the French New Wave. Join us for two nights of his greatest films, including LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD and MON ONCLE D'AMERIQUE.

Ray Harryhausen spent his career turning ancient myth and modern technology into a succession of wondrous creatures, including living skeletons in THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD, harpies in JASON & THE ARGONAUTS and dinosaurs in ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. This month, we bring Ray Harryhausen’s greatest creations back to the big screen in a tribute that also includes MYSTERIOUS ISLAND, EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS, FIRST MEN IN THE MOON and an afternoon of his early short films.
