Description

THE CONVERSATION 7:00 Lonely wiretapping expert and devout Catholic Gene Hackman is hired to record a seemingly innocuous conversation between two lovers. Upon re-hearing the tapes, however, he believes the couple's lives are in danger. Shot on location in San Francisco, this Palme d’Or winner is Francis Ford Coppola’s favorite of his own films; both an intimate character study and an ominous foreshadowing of today’s surveillance state. (1974, 113 min, 35mm) + RUMBLE FISH 9:05 Set in a dreamlike and timeless Tulsa, S.E. Hinton’s story of estrangement and reconciliation between two rebellious brothers is given mythic dimensions to intimate, painful emotions by director Francis Coppola. Graced with a remarkable cast headed by Matt Dillon, Mickey Rourke, and Diane Lane; haunting black-and-white visuals that hark back to German expressionism; and a powerful percussive score by Stewart Copeland, the film pulsates throughout with genuine love and dread. (1983, 94 min, 4K DCP)
