We invite you to discover this remarkable director during the short time that these rare 35mm prints remain in the U.S.!

Nicholas Ray (1911 - 1979) spent his early years soaking up a staggering array of influences, including studying architecture with Frank Lloyd Wright, working with Elia Kazan in New York’s Theatre of Action, and promoting folk music with Pete Seeger and Alan Lomax. Ray soon gained a reputation for his unique, intuitive rapport with actors and for his combative, almost sadomasochistic relationship with the Hollywood establishment. Although his strangest, most daring (and some say greatest) film came in 1954, with the surreal Joan Crawford Western JOHNNY GUITAR, it was the epochal REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE that was his most widely acclaimed success. Join us for this centennial salute to his work, including screenings of BIGGER THAN LIFE and the not-on-DVD KNOCK ON ANY DOOR starring Humphrey Bogart.

From Super Technirama 70 to Ultra Panavision to Dimension 150 and more, the 70mm large-screen format has always promised - and delivered - a Barnum-esque world of spectacular sights and 6-track sounds. If the movies are always larger than life, then 70mm movies are much, much larger! Join us at the Cinematheque for a program of hugely exciting 70mm screenings, including BARAKA, TRON, GLORY, and THE UNTOUCHABLES.

Iconoclastic director Raoul Walsh deftly mastered every genre the studios had to offer - from Westerns to gangster yarns, from high-seas adventures to romantic biography and melodrama. In a career spanning five decades, Walsh was the true adventurous spirit, the consummate craftsman and one of the best set-up men in pictures. To celebrate the first book-length biography of Raoul Walsh, the Cinematheque will run a three-night retrospective that includes HIGH SIERRA and THE THIEF OF BAGDAD.
