One Week Engagement!

Fri, Dec 9, 2011 - Thu, Dec 15, 2011

In Julia Leigh’s visionary directorial debut SLEEPING BEAUTY, reckless college student Lucy (Emily Browning) accepts a job at a specialized brothel requiring its prostitutes to be drugged into slumber while impotent older men lie with them. A hypnotically bleak, nightmarishly kinky portrait of a young woman on the verge of sobering self-discovery, at once reminiscent of Stanley Kubrick’s EYES WIDE SHUT and Luis Bunuel’s BELLE DE JOUR. Screens for a weeklong run in the Spielberg Theatre.


Thu, Dec 8, 2011 - Fri, Dec 30, 2011

See LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, VERTIGO, IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD, LAST ACTION HERO, CLIFFHANGER, HOOK, PLAYTIME and 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY in crisp, dazzling 70mm prints!

François Truffaut (1932 - 1984) began as a critic for the legendary French journal Cahiers du Cinema and his debut feature THE 400 BLOWS helped announce a new kind of cinema: The French New Wave.
