AMERICAN MASTERS – JACQUES PÉPIN: THE ART OF THE CRAFT 7:00

The World Premiere Screening with Chef Jacques Pépin and Director Peter Stein in Conversation. Moderated by Kelly Corrigan, New York Times bestselling author and host of KQED’s podcast Exactly.

Discover the story of Chef Jacques Pépin, a young immigrant with movie-star looks, a charming Gallic accent, and a mastery of cooking and teaching so breathtaking he became an early food icon—joining James Beard and Julia Child among the handful of Americans who transformed the way the country views the food world. Not content cooking in French palaces, where he was the personal chef to three French presidents including Charles de Gaulle, Pépin’s American journey took him through the kitchens of Howard Johnson’s, bringing his commitment to great taste, craftsmanship and technique to American popular food. With his landmark cookbooks and television shows, he ushered in a new era in American food culture—a story that continues to unfold. A KQED Production in association with THIRTEEN’s American Masters for WNET.

THURSDAY APRIL 27 DOUBLE FEATURE

PSYCHO 7:00

Upon its release back in 1960, critics did not know what to make of Alfred Hitchcock’s macabre masterpiece. Now, revisit (or see for the first time) the film that broke all the rules of horror films and set new ones for the next generation. A bloodcurdling Anthony Perkins stars with Janet Leigh, Vera Miles and Bernard Herrmann’s dissonant score. (1960, 109 min, 35mm)

+ THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS 9:05
Jodie Foster is stellar as Clarice Starling, a rookie FBI agent on the trail of a killer. And Anthony Hopkins is infernally charming as Dr. Hannibal Lecter, the imprisoned psychopath who aids Starling in her quest for his own mysterious reasons. Scott Glenn and Ted Levine co-star in Jonathan Demme's adaptation of Thomas Harris' artfully mesmerizing bestseller, which swept the major Academy Awards (Best Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Adapted Screenplay) and remains one of the greatest thrillers of the last 50 years. (1990, 118 min, 35mm)

SATURDAY APRIL 29 DOUBLE FEATURE

BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID 7:10

Paul Newman and Robert Redford star in this comically elegiac Western chronicling the mostly true exploits of the legendary outlaws' last months. George Roy Hill’s revisionist approach to the Western has its tongue firmly in cheek, aided by William Goldman’s Oscar-winning script and the undeniable chemistry between Newman and relative newcomer Redford. (1969, 110 ‬min, DCP ‘Scope)

+ BONNIE AND CLYDE 5:00, 9:15

In this landmark film, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway portray the psychotic mid-west bank robbers who became unlikely heroes during the Great Depression. Both richly comic and shockingly brutal, director Arthur Penn brought his own American New Wave vision to the material and created one of the decade’s most influential films. With Estelle Parsons, Gene Hackman, Michael J. Pollard and Gene Wilder. (1967, 111 min, 35mm)

 
     
   


SUNDAY APRIL 30 DOUBLE BOGIE & HUSTON

THE MALTESE FALCON 7:00

Outstanding detective drama wherein Humphrey Bogart’s iconoclastic Sam Spade and a cast of shady characters embark on a search for the titular statuette. Screenwriter John Huston made his directorial debut with this fast-paced adaptation of Dashiell Hammett’s mystery. Mary Astor, Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet co-star. (1941, 100 min, 35mm)

+ BEAT THE DEVIL 5:05, 8:55
NEW 4K RESTORATION! UNSEEN, UNCENSORED VERSION!
Tough customer Humphrey Bogart is in cahoots with four misguided, deeply untrustworthy con artists off the coast of Italy, scheming to get rich off uranium deposits in Africa. Seeking to spoof the ground he paved with The Maltese Falcon, director John Huston jettisoned the source material and hired Truman Capote to write on the fly during production. Its absurd plot, offbeat comedy and deliciously deadpan performances gained the film an instant cult following. Suffering for decades in a studio-mangled version, then a shoddy public domain title, this new reconstruction utilizes the original 35mm negative and other sources to re-create the original cut, reinstating the censored scenes and eliminating the narration and baffling flashback structure. Jennifer Jones, Gina Lollobrigida, Robert Morley, Edward Underdown and Peter Lorre co-star. (1953, 94 min, 4K DCP)
