TUESDAY JUNE 2 PRIVATE EVENT

     
   


WEDNESDAY JUNE 3 DOUBLE FEATURE

DAYS OF HEAVEN 7:00

A barrage of staggering visuals took this idyllic story of a love triangle in Texas circa 1916 to levels few filmmakers have surpassed, let alone fathomed. Richard Gere, Brooke Adams, Sam Shepherd and Linda Manz star; photographed by Nestor Almendros and Haskell Wexler. (1978, 94 min, DCP)

+ OUT OF THE BLUE 8:50

After serving a five year jail sentence, father Dennis Hopper finds his daughter (Linda Manz) has grown into a rebellious punk, having barely been looked after by her junkie mom (Sharron Farrell). Hopes of once again becoming a "normal" family are shattered as the film barrels towards its devastating conclusion. Director Hopper's loose style and sympathetic, yet critical attitude infuses this harrowing drama, leaving the viewer’s psyche damaged. (1980, 94 min, 35mm)

 
     
   


THURSDAY JUNE 4 DOUBLE FEATURE

ROSEMARY’S BABY 7:00

In Roman Polanski's first American picture, Mia Farrow is a young wife who comes to believe that her offspring is not of this world. Ingenious in design, each room of her apartment was devised its own look while the camerawork leaves the most grotesque frights to the viewer's imagination. Ruth Gordon won the Oscar for her role as the nosy neighbor, backed by John Cassavetes and Ralph Bellamy in creepy turns. (1968, 136 min, 35mm)

+ THE STEPFORD WIVES 4:45, 9:30
