Although he had become one of the industry’s most in-demand writers, Preston Sturges really wanted to direct; he realized that goal with 1940’s THE GREAT MCGINTY, and won the inaugural Best Original Screenplay Oscar in the process. For the rest of the decade, eccentric characters and sparkling dialogue raced by in a blur of comedic gems including THE LADY EVE, SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS, THE PALM BEACH STORY and HAIL THE CONQUERING HERO. Join us for a salute to the first great writer-director on occasion of his 115th birthday this month, which also includes REMEMBER THE NIGHT and CHRISTMAS IN JULY.

Working within the strictures of the Soviet film industry taught Andrei Tarkovsky how to comment on modern social and cultural conditions without directly addressing them, and the portrait of medieval icon painter ANDREI RUBLEV, the sci-fi psychodrama SOLARIS and autobiographical THE MIRROR are rich with symbols and imagery whose meaning reveals itself over time. Our tribute to the filmmaker also includes THE SACRIFICE and a brand-new print of NOSTALGHIA.

When JAWS hit theaters in 1975, the film brought with it a sea change in the movie business: the summer blockbuster. Steven Spielberg’s tale of a voracious shark munching on unsuspecting beachgoers was such a smash, it couldn’t help but inspire imitators. Join us for a weekend salute to this masticating menagerie which also includes PIRANHA, TINTORERA: KILLER SHARK, ALLIGATOR and a sneak preview of Larry Fessenden’s new horror-on-the-water thriller, BENEATH.

Mon, Jul 1, 2013 - Thu, Jul 25, 2013

Join us for a salute to one of Hollywood’s most reliably malevolent character actors, which includesSON OF FRANKENSTEIN, MAN MADE MONSTER, FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN and SECRET OF THE BLUE ROOM.
