MOTION PICTURESQUE: CINEMA AT ITS MOST BEAUTIFUL

January 3 - 27, 2012, at the Egyptian and Aero Theatres

Do you wanna be the one to tell Ray Liotta he can’t walk all around the Copacabana in GOODFELLAS? Or tell Fred Astaire to dance in place in THE BAND WAGON? For all their convenience, iPhones, laptops and home entertainment systems rarely give motion pictures the room to move, or the scope to make an indelible impression. Big movies were made for big screens, and this month, we bring some of the biggest and most beautiful to the Aero and the Egyptian. The visual grandeur and detail achieved by top directors teamed with top cinematographers (think Orson Welles and Gregg Toland on CITIZEN KANE, Francis Ford Coppola and Gordon Willis on THE GODFATHER and THE GODFATHER PART II or Elia Kazan and Haskell Wexler on AMERICA, AMERICA) comes through best when the images are larger than life. As do the surreal visuals of Fellini’s 8-1/2, Kurosawa’s DREAMS and Kaufman’s SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK (shot by Fred Elmes, who also lensed the pretty surreal BLUE VELVET) and the sweep of such classics of world cinema as BLACK ORPHEUS and SANSHO THE BAILIFF. Don’t just see these films - experience them!

Series also includes THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS, MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS, ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS and MILLER’S CROSSING.

Series compiled by Grant Moninger and Gwen Deglise. Program notes by John Hagelston.
