LEONARD NIMOY REMEMBERED
Double Feature!
VINCENT / DEATHWATCH

Free admission if you are just coming for the second feature DEATHWATCH.

VINCENT
1981, Paul Brownstein Productions, 88 min, USA, Dir: Leonard Nimoy

Leonard Nimoy directs and stars as both Vincent Van Gogh and his brother Theo in this filmed production of his tour-de-force one-man show. Using Van Gogh’s paintings as a backdrop, Nimoy brings both the art and the man to life in a moving portrait based on the correspondence between the two brothers.


DEATHWATCH
1966, 88 min, USA, Dir: Vic Morrow

Actor Vic Morrow made his directing debut with this low-budget adaptation of Jean Genet’s 1947 play, a triangle between three prison inmates played by Leonard Nimoy, Michael Forest, and future directing legend Paul Mazursky. Sharing a cell, the men engage in complex power struggles and games of manipulation, photographed in stark black-and-white by Vilis Lapenieks and edited by the legendary Verna Fields.
