OSCAR SEASON AT THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE 2016
Double Feature! Sylvester Stallone In Person!
CREED / ROCKY

Though tonight's screening is sold-out online, a large block of tickets has become available and will be sold at the door when the box office opens at 6:00 PM.

Raw eggs and early morning jogs through Philadelphia helped turn Rocky Balboa into a champion; the role of the iconic boxer earned Sylvester Stallone two Academy Award nominations for Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay, and began a 40-year legacy of one of cinema’s most enduring characters.

Discussion between films with Sylvester Stallone, moderated by Dave Karger.
CREED
2015, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/New Line Cinema/Warner Bros., 133 min, USA, Dir: Ryan Coogler

Writer-director Ryan Coogler reunites with FRUITVALE STATION star Michael B. Jordan for the latest round of the beloved ROCKY saga. Adonis Johnson (Jordan) wants to follow in the footsteps of his father, boxer Apollo Creed, and seeks out former champ Rocky Balboa (Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone) to show him the ropes. Though this crowd-pleaser has some of the best fight choreography you’ve ever seen, it’s the courageous central characters that give CREED such a powerful punch. With a screenplay written by Coogler and Aaron Covington, the film also stars Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad.


ROCKY
1976, MGM, 119 min, Dir: John Avildsen

Sylvester Stallone wrote the script and starred in this Oscar-winning tale of a struggling working stiff who gets a shot at the world heavyweight title. Talia Shire, Burt Young, Carl Weathers and Burgess Meredith provide knockout supporting performances.


Tickets: $16 General, $12 Members. No vouchers. Screening format: DCP
