Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Dir: Roman Polanski
Dedicated to his late wife, director Roman Polanski’s adaptation of Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles is both luminous and tinted with sorrow. Nastassja Kinski stars in the title role as a Victorian-era farm girl, tragically caught between a lustful aristocrat (Leigh Lawson) and the man who really loves her (Peter Firth). Nominated for six Academy Awards, the film won Oscars for Best Art Direction, Costume Design and Cinematography.

Dir: Henry King
Hollywood veteran Henry King directs this classic soap opera set in Hong Kong during the Korean War. William Holden is an American war correspondent; Jennifer Jones is the Eurasian doctor he falls for.
Dir: Steve Balderson
In this film set against the backdrop of the 1969 moonwalk, a group of suburban housewives hold dinner parties to test out their new casseroles. As boozy flirtation begins to dominate the gatherings - and more than recipes start getting swapped - the story shifts from stylized humor to a drama about irresponsibility, selfishness and damaged people. Balderson’s film bursts with dazzling color and outstanding performances from Susan Traylor, Kevin Richardson (the former Backstreet Boy in his big screen debut), Daniela Sea and Pleasant Gehman. Winner of five Independent Vision Awards including Best Picture.
