We’re thrilled to announce some extra films this November & December!! If you haven’t yet purchased an All-Access Pass, you now have 6 more reasons to pick one up!
Also, a reminder: we’re still hiring for student projectionists for next semester! We’re interviewing and training staff this month, so get your application in now.
One of our new titles replaces our previously announced, but tentative, screenings of Leos Carax’ Annette, which is not available to us at this time. We may reschedule for the Spring semester, but in the meantime, we’ve replaced one strange baby film with another! We’re screening the French arthouse shocker Titane on Nov 12 & 14. Julia Ducournau’s Cannes-winning tale of a woman with a… peculiar love of cars has been turning heads (and stomachs) ever since it hit the Croisette this summer. It's France's submission for Best International Film at the 94th Academy Awards!
We amp up our semester-long Hitchcock series with a brand new restoration of North by Northwest and a second show of Rear Window, two stone-cold classics from the master of suspense, both of which will captivate you up on the big screen.
We’ve also added the Ithaca premiere of the new, sure-to-be-Oscar-nominated documentary, The Rescue! It follows the harrowing, but triumphant, rescue of 12 teenagers and their soccer coach who were trapped in a Thai cave following a monsoon. Even if you think you know this story, this excellent documentary is full of new revelations.
Finally, we’re ending this semester on some uplifting notes. In collaboration with the Asian & Asian American Center and the Hasbrouck Community Center, we’re hosting our first kid-friendly* matinee screening since March '20 with Hayao Miyazaki’s Ponyo! Tickets will cost just $5 each.
For the slightly more grown up, we’ve got two screenings of David Byrne’s American Utopia! Directed by Spike Lee, this is a document of the superb 2019 Broadway production of American Utopia, conceived by and starring former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne. The production is back on Broadway now, but you can pay a fraction of the cost here and watch the show through Spike Lee’s eyes (and hear it through our great sound system). What could be a better end to the semester?
