As effortless as she made every step on the dance floor look, Ginger Rogers (1911-1995) became one of the biggest female stars in Hollywood the old-fashioned way: with plenty of hard work. Join us for a centennial salute to one of the true icons of Hollywood’s Golden Age, featuring SHALL WE DANCE and TOP HAT, and much more!

One of the most important and influential composers to set music to celluloid, Bernard Herrmann (1911 - 1975) indelibly heightened many of film's greatest images with his profoundly affecting scores. Herrmann is most frequently and notably associated with suspense maestro Alfred Hitchcock, yet Herrmann's work also includes scores for two of Orson Welles' most brilliant works, CITIZEN KANE and THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS, Nicholas Ray's snow-blanketed gem ON DANGEROUS GROUND, and Brian De Palma's OBSESSION, to name just a few.

From Super Technirama 70 to Ultra Panavision to Dimension 150 and more, the 70mm large-screen format has always promised - and delivered - a Barnum-esque world of spectacular sights and 6-track sounds. If the movies are always larger than life, then 70mm movies are much, much larger! Join us at the Cinematheque for a program of hugely exciting 70mm screenings, including BARAKA, TRON, GLORY, and THE UNTOUCHABLES.

Actor Peter Fonda first attracted moviegoers' attention in a pair of classic Roger Corman counterculture films, THE WILD ANGELS and THE TRIP. The promise of those early roles was fully realized in the landmark EASY RIDER. In subsequent decades, Fonda has proven himself an adept, innovative director, and his stature as a performer has only grown. We are thrilled to welcome Peter Fonda to the Aero Theatre!

Italian director Federico Fellini (1920 - 1993) remains in a category all his own, godfather to a carnival gallery of prostitutes, strongmen, film directors, vaudevillians and clowns, who share a sympathetic bond with each other against the often cruel and unfeeling "civilized" world. His greatest works, including 8 1/2, LA DOLCE VITA, NIGHTS OF CABIRIA, LA STRADA and AMARCORD, seem to spring from an almost unbridled imagination, but one that is connected to a profound understanding of the human experience.
