Description

*Double Feature in 35mm!* GOODFELLAS @ 1:30, 7:30 Martin Scorsese’s mastery of the medium was displayed in new and unexpected ways for this knowing depiction of the life and crimes of Brooklyn mobster Henry Hill. Ray Liotta is on fire as Hill and prime support from Robert De Niro, Lorraine Bracco, Paul Sorvino, and Oscar-winner Joe Pesci cement multiple memorable moments. (1990, 145 min, 35mm) + CASINO @ 4:15 This grossly underrated counterpart to GOODFELLAS opens with a stunning title sequence by Saul Bass and does not let up over course of three hours. Set in the 1970s, the film chronicles the true story of casino manager Ace Rothstein and his rise and fall at the hands of greedy cohorts. Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci are exceptional in subtly comic ways and Scorsese truly makes Las Vegas a character come to life. James Woods and Don Rickles co-star. (1995, 178 min, 35mm ‘Scope)
