Screenwriter Visit, Ava Gardner Double Feature, 3D Hitchcock this Week

By: Cornell Cinema, 
Mon, 03/09/2020

As of Friday, March 13, Cornell Cinema has cancelled ALL SCREENINGS (following Cornell University's policy.) We regret the inconvience. Stay safe. Please see our updated info for more info.

Come join us Monday and Tuesday for special screenings with screenwriter Guinevere Turner (pictured)!

Monday, Turner will do a Q&A with CHARLIE SAYS, Mary Harron's latest film, which follows a young graduate student as she interviews and attempts to deprogram the imprisoned women of the Manson Family. On Tuesday, Turner will discuss another project she did with Mary Harron, the positively flawless AMERICAN PSYCHO! If you've seen AMERICAN PSYCHO multiple times, feel free to come at 8:30pm for the Q & A only (admission will still be charged or use your All-Access Pass!). 

On Wednesday, we've got a special double-bill lined up for you, beginning with the fascinating TCM documentary ALL THE NIGHT LONG, introduced by Patty Keller (Romance Studies/Comp Lit). ALL THE NIGHT LONG is about actress Ava Gardner's abiding love for Spain, which she visited for the first time while shooting PANDORA AND THE FLYING DUTCHMAN, a visually stunning romance also starring James Mason as a sailor eternally condemned to sail the oceans. Our second screening is a brand new digital restoration of PANDORA AND THE FLYING DUTCHMAN. Attendees to ALL THE NIGHT LONG get in for FREE to our screening of PANDORA!

Our Agnès Varda series continues with CINEVARDAPHOTO on Thursday and Sunday, a collection of three short documentaries about photography that span 40 years of Varda's career. And on Friday, we're breaking out the 3D glasses for the classic Hitchcock thriller DIAL M FOR MURDER!

Finally, we've got Terrence Malick's latest film, A HIDDEN LIFE, which marks a return to a more classical style of filmmaking, but is no less spiritually poetic in its tale of an Austrian conscientious objector during WWII. And we've got BOMBSHELL this weekend as well! Come see Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron be transformed into the Fox News anchors Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly—and be repulsed by John Lithgow's uncanny Roger Ailes villain. 

In closing, please remember Cornell Cinema this Thursday, March 12, Cornell's Giving Day. Gifts of any size are welcome and will help us celebrate our 50th Anniversary this Fall!
