Venture “Into the Unknown” alongside Anna and Elsa when Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen II Special Sing-Along Engagement comes to the Castro for a limited time! Our hosts will warm up your vocal chords before every screening then you can sing along to the words on screen during the movie!

Why was Elsa born with magical powers? The answer is calling her and threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she'll set out on a dangerous but remarkable journey. In Frozen, Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In Frozen II, she must hope they are enough. From the Academy Award®-winning team—directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, and songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez—and featuring the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad. (2019, full program runs approx. 120 min, DCP ‘Scope)

PARASITE 7:00 only!

Academy Award Winner for Best Motion Picture, Best International Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay

Struggling and scheming to make ends meet, the Kim family seizes the opportunity when their young son becomes tutor to the daughter of the well-to-do Park family. As the Kims gradually take over every domestic position in the Park household, the question of who's scamming whom becomes decidedly blurry. Writer/director Bong Joon-Ho's energetic and bloody social farce is both scathingly political and accessibly, wildly funny, delivered by one of 2019’s strongest ensemble casts. The unanimous winner of the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme D'Or, and South Korea’s first-ever six-time Oscar nominee. (2019, in Korean with English subtitles, 132 min, DCP ‘Scope)

THE WHITE SHEIK (5:15), 7:00, 8:45 New 4K Restoration!
Federico Fellini’s first solo directorial effort follows a honeymoon gone off the rails when the groom (Leopoldo Trieste) brings his new bride (Brunella Bovo) to Rome, where she drifts off in search of her titular idol. Based on an original treatment by Michelangelo Antonioni, the style and themes which made Fellini world famous are already apparent here, and the film also marks a number of early collaborations with his future stalwarts, notably a memorable cameo by Giulietta Masina and a score by composer Nino Rota. Beloved by Orson Welles, who called it his favorite Fellini movie, The White Sheik is a slapstick comedy worthy of Chaplin. (1952, in Italian with English subtitles, 86 min, 4K DCP)

4K restoration by Fondazione Cineteca di Bologna, in collaboration with RTI-Mediaset and Infinity, as part of Fellini 100. Restored from the original camera negative.

UNCUT GEMS 7:00
In one of 2019's indisputably great performances, Adam Sandler becomes Howard Ratner, an ambitious jeweler plying his trade in New York's busy diamond district. We follow Howard through the highs and lows of two emotionally fraught days as he attempts, repeatedly and desperately, to parlay a recent find of a rare black opal into a seven-figure gambling win. Filmmakers Benny and Josh Safdie (Good Time) have created a remarkable opus that is both grippingly intimate and startlingly cosmic, cringingly painful and wildly funny. The cast includes Idina Menzel, Lakeith Stanfield, Eric Bogosian, Judd Hirsch, talented first-timer Julia Fox, and former NBA power forward Kevin Garnett as himself; Daniel Lopatin provides the exquisite, otherworldly score. (2019, 135 min, 35mm ‘Scope)

+ THE KING OF MARVIN GARDENS 9:25
For his electrifying follow-up to the smash success Five Easy Pieces, Bob Rafelson dug even deeper into the crushed dreams of wayward America. Jack Nicholson and Bruce Dern play estranged siblings David and Jason, the former a depressive late-night-radio talk show host, the latter an extroverted con man; when Jason drags his younger brother to a dreary Atlantic City and into a real-estate scam, events spiral toward tragedy. The King of Marvin Gardens, also starring a brilliant Ellen Burstyn as Jason’s bitter aging beauty-queen squeeze, is one of the most devastating character studies of the seventies. –Criterion Collection (1972, 104 min, DCP)

+ THIEF 9:30
James Caan gives an intensely controlled performance as a fiercely independent professional jewel thief whose personal life code is complicated when he goes to work for crime lord Robert Prosky. Filmed largely at night on the streets of Chicago, Michael Mann’s neon-drenched feature film debut is loaded with his soon-to-be trademark hypnotic visuals and precise attention to detail. “Thief is a film of style, substance, and violently felt emotion, all wrapped up in one of the most intelligent thrillers I've seen.” –Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times. Tuesday Weld, James Belushi, Willie Nelson, and a sizzling score by Tangerine Dream co-star. (1981, 122 min, DCP)
