Our tribute to legendary cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond begins with two 1970s classics he shot for Robert Altman. Revisionist Western MCCABE & MRS. MILLER stars Warren Beatty and Julie Christie, while THE LONG GOODBYE deconstructs the private-eye genre with Elliott Gould as a smart-aleck Philip Marlowe. Introduction by Caleb Deschanel.
Actor John Savage joins us as our tribute to cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond continues with this Best Picture winner. Director Michael Cimino's masterwork follows hunter Robert De Niro and friends Christopher Walken, John Savage and John Cazale from the mist-shrouded Pennsylvania hills to shattering prisoner-of-war games in the jungles of Vietnam.
Sylvester Stallone appears in person with two films in which he stars as boxer Rocky Balboa. First, the new CREED, for which Stallone is a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominee. Then the original ROCKY, which launched the beloved film franchise 40 years ago.
Director Ridley Scott’s dazzling fusion of retro-noir and future paranoia is set in a decaying, rain-drenched Los Angeles. Harrison Ford stars as the government-sanctioned killer who falls in love with gorgeous, enigmatic Sean Young.
Our first Cinematic Void screening is this absurdly violent slasher epic, also released as HOSPITAL MASSACRE. When a woman (former Playboy playmate Barbi Benton) goes to the hospital for a routine examination, she becomes the prey of a psychotic maniac looking to avenge a childhood Valentine’s Day humiliation.
