BUY TICKETS

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci star in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran (De Niro), a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino), and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries, and connections to mainstream politics. Harvey Keitel, Jesse Plemons, Anna Paquin, and Bobby Cannavale co-star. A Netflix Film. (2019, 209 min, DCP)

THE COTTON CLUB 2:30, 7:00
Originally released in 1984, writer/director Francis Ford Coppola’s glittering spectacle presents Prohibition, gangsters and virtuoso tap dancing in a lavish ode to the music and drama of Harlem’s famed hot spot, the Cotton Club. Mixing underworld criminality with some of the catchiest high steppin’ around, the film deftly shows off its multi-talented cast, including Richard Gere, Diane Lane, Gregory Hines, Lonette McKee, Bob Hoskins, Fred Gwynne, Gwen Verdon, Julian Beck, Nicolas Cage, Laurence Fishburne, James Remar, Maurice Hines, Novella Nelson, Allen Garfield, Jennifer Grey, John P. Ryan, and Tom Waits. After a difficult production the director removed 30 minutes of footage under pressure, and the film was received with controversy. Now, 35 years later in a labor of love, Coppola has reshaped the film into his intended version, restoring several legendary musical numbers and better showcasing the film’s unparalleled cast. It’s a revelation. In the words of the director, “This is the film the world should have seen despite the countless court cases, murder trial proceedings, and warring producers.” (1984/2019, 139 min, DCP)

GOLD DIGGERS OF 1933 5:05
A strapped-for-cash Broadway revue gets a timely rescue from a young backer (Dick Powell) who’s awash in talent as well as funds...but the cast (Ruby Keeler, Joan Blondell, Aline McMahon, and Ginger Rogers) have their questions about his motives. Choreographer Busby Berkeley pulled out all the stops for classic numbers like "We're in the Money" (dancers wearing giant coins), "Shadow Waltz" (hoop-skirted musicians with neon violins), and the racy "Pettin' in the Park." Ned Sparks, Warren William, Guy Kibbee co-star; Mervyn LeRoy directs. (1933, 97 min, 35mm)

THE ROARING TWENTIES 6:00
Prohibition was to organized crime what paraffin is to a naked flame. Raoul Walsh’s gritty gangster epic is a condemnation of a dirty decade of unemployment, corruption and violence, starring Jimmy Cagney as the good citizen turned bootlegger and Humphrey Bogart his tough-guy nemesis. They meet first in a shellhole as soldier comrades and again as fellow crims on a booze raid in the Hudson. Not just a crime film, this is a social problem movie in the vein of I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang (1932), based on the work of New York reporter Mark Hellinger. –BFI (1939, 105 min, Digital)

THE KING 5:15, 8:00

Rising star Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name) is ideally cast as King Henry the Fifth, a boy who becomes king at a perilous and decisive moment in history, and whose pacifism slowly but implacably turns into steely tyranny when he's forced to go to war. This stirring adaptation (by director David Michôd and writer Joel Edgerton) of the Henriad plays eschews Shakespeare's language for modern speech, but retains Henry IV and Henry V's epic engagement of the personal and the political, and depicts as strongly as Shakespeare the locomotive, unstoppable power of history. The uniformly strong cast includes Edgerton as Falstaff, Ben Mendelsohn as Henry IV, and, in a delightfully prickly turn, Robert Pattinson as the Dauphin. (2019, 140 min, DCP ‘Scope)

A STAR IS BORN 3:30, 7:00

Judy Garland’s genius is on full display in this musical remake telling the tale of a doomed movie star couple. A notoriously troubled production, George Cukor directed this harrowing Hollywood odyssey bolstered by a magnificent musical score by Harold Arlen and Ira Gershwin; songs include "Born in a Trunk," "The Man That Got Away," "Lose That Long Face." Co-star George Mason excels as the alcoholic husband. (1954, 176 min + intermission – restored cut, DCP)

THE OX-BOW INCIDENT 6:30 4K Restoration!
When three men in possession of stolen cattle and suspected of killing a local rancher are caught, the posse members must decide whether to bring them back to town or dispense "justice" themselves. Based on the classic novel, director William Wellman's brooding study of lynch-mob mentality on the frontier stars Henry Fonda, Dana Andrews, Anthony Quinn, Harry Morgan, and Jane Darwell. (1943, 75 min, 4K DCP)

+ MY COUSIN VINNY 8:00
This side-splitting farce stars Joe Pesci as a streetwise but inexperienced lawyer from New York who gets the call to defend his cousin (Ralph Macchio) and a friend (Mitchell Whitfield) when they're accused of murdering a convenience store clerk in Alabama. Pesci quickly discovers that his unorthodox courtroom manner doesn't sit well with the case's stern Southern judge (Fred Gwynne, in his final big-screen role). With Lane Smith, and Marisa Tomei in an Oscar-winning turn as Pesci's feisty fiancee. Directed by Jonathan Lynn (Clue). (1992, 119 min, DCP)

THE GODFATHER 2:00, 7:30 4K Restoration!
Francis Ford Coppola’s crime family saga was an unparalleled artistic and critical success in the 1970s, with Marlon Brando in full comeback mode as Don Vito Corleone. Yet as his son Michael Corleone, Al Pacino’s subtle transformation from seemingly reluctant successor to vengeful, paranoid tyrant is one of cinema’s most chilling character arcs. Featuring an impeccable supporting cast, this milestone of New Hollywood cinema launched the carriers of James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, and John Cazale. (1972, 177 min, 4K DCP)

+ A WEDDING 5:10 4K Restoration!
Robert Altman’s film, rendered in his trademark style, takes place in a single day during a lavish wedding that merges a nouveau riche Southern family with an established wealthy Chicago family having possible ties to organized crime. The mammoth 48 member ensemble cast includes Carol Burnett, Paul Dooley, Nina Van Pallandt, Vittorio Gassman, Howard Duff, Mia Farrow, Amy Stryker, Dezi Arnaz Jr., Dina Merrill, Pat McCormick, Viveca Lindfors, Dennis Christopher, Lauren Hutton, Geraldine Chaplin, Bert Remsen, and in her 100th role, Lillian Gish. "It begins in comedy, it moves into realms of social observation, it descends into personal revelations that are sometimes tragic, sometimes comic, and then it ends in a way that turns everything back upon itself. The more you think about what Altman's done, the more impressive his accomplishment becomes." –Roger Ebert. (1978, 125 min, 4K DCP ‘Scope)

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland (Renée Zellweger, in an Oscar-worthy performance) arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans (Finn Wittrock), her soon-to-be fifth husband. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.” Jessie Buckley, Rufus Sewell, and Michael Gambon co-star; Rupert Goold directs.
