THE BITTER TEA OF GENERAL YEN
1933, Sony Repertory, 88 min, USA, Dir: Frank Capra

One of Frank Capra’s greatest films, this complex love story between an American missionary (Barbara Stanwyck) and her Chinese captor (Nils Asther) is a haunting masterpiece. Subtle and deeply mysterious, it presents Stanwyck at her best and Capra at his most provocative, with an interracial romance that is both moving and challenging.


New 4K Restoration!

LOST HORIZON
1937, Sony Repertory, 132 min, USA, Dir: Frank Capra

Ronald Colman finds long-sought-for harmony – and love – in the Himalayan mountains. Director Frank Capra’s adaptation of James Hilton’s novel combines edge-of-your-seat adventure with an exploration of what it means to be at peace with oneself. Brilliantly mounted on all levels, from the supporting cast including Jane Wyatt and Sam Jaffe to the Shangri-La set
