Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Dir: François Truffaut
François Truffaut adapts the Ray Bradbury classic with his signature fresh spontaneity and visual ingenuity. Firefighter Guy Montag (Oskar Werner, JULES AND JIM) has the ugly duty of burning books in his dystopian, fearmongering society of the future. When he meets and falls in love with rebellious book hoarder Clarisse (Julie Christie) and is introduced to the brilliance of the confiscated material, Guy begins to question his world’s dictates and must choose to either safely comply or run away - which could bring lethal consequences.
Dir: Kenneth Branagh
Director Kenneth Branagh updates Shakespeare's classic to the second half of the 19th century and presents it in all its unedited glory in this epic treatment, one of the last films to be shot in 70mm. Actor Branagh shines in the title role, but director Branagh wisely surrounds himself with an astonishing supporting cast that includes Julie Christie, Sir Derek Jacobi, Kate Winslet, Rufus Sewell, Charlton Heston, John Gielgud ... and even Robin Williams and Billy Crystal! Not to be missed on the big screen.
This story of Tsarists, revolutionaries, two beautiful women in love with the same man, a nation in upheaval and, above all, the poet physician (Omar Sharif) who witnesses and remembers it all - is one of the most lyrical, visually breathtaking films in the history of the medium. Co-starring Julie Christie, Geraldine Chaplin, Rod Steiger, Tom Courtenay and Alec Guinness, with sublime music by Maurice Jarre.
