Description

PANDORA AND THE FLYING DUTCHMAN 2:45, 7:00 In Albert Lewin’s sultry, surreal and hopelessly romantic film, Ava Gardner is an otherworldly beauty driving men to distraction (or worse) and James Mason is a 17th-century sea captain doomed to sail the seas for eternity—unless he can find a woman willing to sacrifice her life for love. Boasting a luscious palette, Pandora unfurls with dreamlike logic somewhere between the physical and the metaphysical, sometime between modernity and antiquity. (1951, 123 min, 4K DCP) + A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH 5:00, 9:15 Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s remarkable WWII fantasy-drama about a RAF pilot David Niven who cheats death and must plead for his life before a Heavenly court. A film so dazzling in its visual trickery and textural richness that it requires more than one viewing to absorb fully. (1946, 104 min, 4K DCP)
