40th Anniversary!

1972, 20th Century Fox, 117 min, USA, Dir: Ronald Neame

Director Ronald Neame and producer Irwin Allen’s literally titanic disaster epic features a boatload of acting talent - Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Red Buttons, Carol Lynley, Jack Albertson, Roddy McDowall, Stella Stevens and more - all doing their best to survive the hellish inferno of capsized ocean liner the S.S. Poseidon. Special kudos to Shelley Winters for her unforgettably gutsy performance, and to special effects expert L.B. Abbott and stunt coordinator Paul Stader for some of the most spectacular disaster scenes in movie history, including the famous upside-down ballroom.

There will be a charge for autographs. Screening format: DCP
