LOW RIDER: THE SUPER-CHARGED CINEMA OF STEVE MCQUEEN

March 29 – April 1, 2012

From his escape-artist anti-heroes in PAPILLON and THE GREAT ESCAPE to his hardboiled loners in THE CINCINNATI KID and JUNIOR BONNER, to his speed-demon cop in BULLITT, actor Steve McQueen (1930 - 1980) blazed across the screen with the same intensity and competitive spirit he brought to his off-screen passion for racing. One of the most popular and acclaimed actors of his generation, McQueen is arguably even more popular now, emerging as a kind of archetype for the ideal Hollywood male star: defiantly independent (but nursing a wounded soul), always close to the boiling point, a man of few words and much action. In other words, the King of Cool.

Please join us for a retrospective of Steve McQueen’s most exciting films, including screenings of THE HUNTER, THE GETAWAY, THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR and SOLDIER IN THE RAIN - in honor of McQueen's March 24th birthday.

Book signing in the Egyptian lobby and on March 31 of Neile Adams’ 'My Husband, My Friend.' Adams and McQueen were married for 15 years, from 1956 – 1972 and she was on the set of many of his films. She will also introduce the screening.
