DOUBLE FREAKOUT
SUSPIRIA 7:30 THE UNCUT 4K RESTORATION!
The story's as simple as a fairy tale, as American innocent Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper) is caught up in the increasingly sinister goings-on at an elite European dance academy. But director Dario Argento delivers the goods with lush, terrifying style, crafting one of the greatest and most genuinely unsettling horror movies ever made. This new digital restoration crisply renders Argento's unsurpassed, cruelly beautiful visuals with clarity and verve, and the pounding, ritualistic score by Goblin registers as powerfully as ever. (1977, 98 min, 4K DCP ‘Scope)

+ CLIMAX 9:20
From director Gaspar Noé (Irreversible; Enter the Void) comes a hypnotic, hallucinatory, and ultimately hair-raising depiction of collective psychedelic meltdown. A troupe of young dancers gathers in a remote and empty school building to rehearse. Following a spellbinding opening performance sequence, the troupe begins an all-night celebration that descends into horrific delirium as the dancers discover they've been pounding cups of sangria laced with potent LSD. Sofia Boutella (Atomic Blonde) leads the cast, joined by professional dancers/non-professional actors, who improvised extensively throughout the 15-day shoot. Based on a true incident, Climax is Noé's most brazen and visionary statement yet. (2018, 96 min, DCP ‘Scope)
