The Goddess Open to General Public; Other Week Highlights

We are thrilled to invite members of both the CU & greater Ithaca communities to our very special event this Thursday, a screening of the Chinese silent classic The Goddess, featuring live musical accompaniment by virtuosos Min Xiao-Fen and Rez Abbasi. All attendees must be masked throughout the performance and must provide one of the following to enter the theatre:

  • Cornell ID; or
  • Proof of vaccine; or
  • Proof of negative PCR test within 72 hours of the event.

Our capacity for this event will be limited to 50% of our orchestra-level seating (150) to encourage distancing between patrons. [Please note: we've already sold more than half so don't delay in securing your ticket!] The performers will be unmasked for the duration of the event to accommodate singing, but will maintain at least 12 feet of distance with the audience when unmasked. Both performers have been vaccinated. It’s going to be an excellent event, and assuming all goes well, we’re optimistic that we will be able to open all of our screenings to the general public by the end of the month—stay tuned. 

In the meantime, all of our other screenings remain open to the Cornell community only.

We have one final screening of Gunda, a NY Times Critic's Pick, Monday night, and a sold out event for Dear Evan Hansen on Tuesday. After that, it’s two screenings of Terrence Malick’s Days of Heaven on 35mm, on Wednesday and Saturday. Those of you who were at last week’s 35mm screening of The Seventh Seal saw some truly beautiful images up on the screen, and that’ll be case for Days of Heaven as well, which features some of the greatest cinematography to come out of Hollywood. Don’t miss it! 

We’re also screening three new films this weekend: Christian Petzold’s latest wonder, Undine (Fri & Sun); Lin Manuel Miranda's In the Heights (Fri & Sat); and A24’s Zola (Thurs & Sun). Catch them all with your All-Access Pass!
