This year’s holiday series gets a decidedly nontraditional start with Beyond Fest copresenting the notorious Christmas horror films SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT and CHRISTMAS EVIL - but there's also plenty of classic fare, including 3 screenings of IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE! Cinematheque favorites ELF and a pre-New-Years-Eve screening of THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE are also included.
Comedy fans may know him best for TV appearances as lower-class British housewives, Spanish Inquisitors or naked organists. But Terry Jones’ work behind the camera is just as memorable as his Monty Python characters. He joins us in person for screenings of MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, MONTY PYTHON’S THE MEANING OF LIFE, LIFE OF BRIAN and ERIK THE VIKING.
Christopher Nolan has the rare ability to attract and challenge audiences at the same time. Join us for a retrospective of his films, including MEMENTO, INSOMNIA and THE DARK NIGHT trilogy, and a 70mm screening of INTERSTELLAR with Christopher Nolan in person!
Dick Miller, Roger Corman, Ernest R. Dickerson, Elijah Drenner, & Lainie Miller In Person!
The name may not ring a bell, but the face surely will - Dick Miller is one of Hollywood’s favorite character actors. One of the busiest members of Roger Corman’s stock company, Joe Dante has made it a point to use the actor in nearly all of his films. Corman and Dante are just a few of the screen luminaries who sing the actor’s praises in THAT GUY DICK MILLER. The new documentary traces his still-ongoing career, from its beginnings in New York to today, using interviews, animated segments and rare film clips, and shows just why “that guy’s in everything!”
Don’t miss the opportunity to see South America’s first home-grown film industry come of age on the big screen! Series includes some of the finest recent Argentine cinema, ranging from thrillers (BETIBU) to comedies (THE PRINCESS OF FRANCE) and dramas about family (NATURAL SCIENCES), romance and friendship (THE MYSTERY OF HAPPINESS), and the need to find direction in life (Sundance favorite LOCK CHARMER). The powerful Cannes Film Festival selection REFUGIADO adds to the breadth and depth of selections.
