Description

PATHS OF GLORY 6:00 After a disastrous retreat from a skirmish with German forces, three French soldiers face death on trumped-up charges of cowardice by their conniving leadership. Director Stanley Kubrick’s full artistry blossoms in his second feature—fluid camera, striking geometric compositions, themes of man destroyed by indifferent social forces and the horrors of war—and Kirk Douglas gives one of his absolute finest performances as the driven, sympathetic captain advocating for the accused. Classic. (1957, 88 min, DCP) + LONELY ARE THE BRAVE 7:45 In his favorite of his films, Kirk Douglas stars as a ruggedly individualistic cowboy on a collision course with the modern world. His uncompromising spirit is severely challenged when he breaks out of jail after a minor offense, and the entire county's police force tries to recapture him before he can leave the territory. David Miller helmed Spartacus screenwriter Dalton Trumbo's mournful masterpiece.(1962, 107 min, 35mm ‘Scope)
