We’re thrilled to announce a complete re-design of the American Cinematheque website. See The New Site Now >
IMMORTAL BELOVED
1994, Sony Repertory, 121 min, UK/USA, Dir: Bernard Rose

After Ludwig van Beethoven’s death in 1827, a three-part love letter was discovered in his papers addressed to an unnamed “immortal beloved,” and the quest to identify her drives this moving drama. Gary Oldman is superb as the legendary composer, and Isabella Rossellini, Johanna ter Steege and Valeria Golino are equally fine as possible objects of Beethoven’s affection. Featuring sumptuous production design and some of the most beautiful classical music ever written, writer-director Rose’s rumination on the mysteries of love is a feast for the senses.


KRULL
1983, Sony Repertory, 121 min, UK/USA, Dir: Peter Yates

The planet Krull is being attacked by a huge spaceship called the Black Fortress; from rival kingdoms, Princess Lyssa (Lysette Anthony) and Colwyn (Ken Marshall) unite to drive back the alien invaders and fulfill an ancient prophecy. This little-seen sci-fi fantasy boasts lavish production values and a superb score by James Horner. Watch closely for Liam Neeson and Robbie Coltrane in small roles!
