See the stunts of action star Jackie Chan on the big screen in 1993's POLICE STORY 3: SUPERCOP, costarring Michelle Yeoh, and 1978's SNAKE IN THE EAGLE’S SHADOW, one of the films that helped propel Chan to stardom. Both films are dubbed in English.
A second night of Jackie Chan martial arts films includes 1978's DRUNKEN MASTER, a wildly entertaining and irreverent take on Chinese folk hero Wong Fei-hung, and THE LEGEND OF DRUNKEN MASTER, in which Chan reprises his role as the master of “drunken boxing.” Both films are dubbed in English.
Retro Format's series of D.W. Griffith shorts resumes with films from early 1911, including Mary Pickford in “The Three Sisters” and "When a Man Loves” and Dorothy Bernard in “Fate’s Turning” and “The Lily of the Tenements,” with live musical accompaniment!
With its hypnotic visuals and wistful characters, director Alfred Hitchcock’s psychological suspense masterpiece VERTIGO continues to entrance audiences. See it on the big screen, as it was meant to be seen - and in a 70mm print!
A Rainer Werner Fassbinder mini-retrospective begins with THE MARRIAGE OF MARIA BRAUN, focusing on a WWII widow who sees no option for survival but to ascend pitilessly to the top, and a 40th anniversary screening of FOX AND HIS FRIENDS, starring Fassbinder himself as a working-class guy who falls in with an elegant and status-conscious group of men after he wins an improbable lottery.
Made by longtime friend Christian Braad Thomsen, FASSBINDER: TO LOVE WITHOUT DEMANDS is an intimate portrait of the director filled with revealing and previously unseen interviews. It's paired with Fassbinder's cross-generational, interracial romance drama ALI: FEAR EATS THE SOUL, a surprisingly tender film that often is considered his best.
