NORTH BY NORTHWEST + TORN CURTAIN

NORTH BY NORTHWEST Cary Grant teams with director Alfred Hitchcock for the fourth and final time as a Madison Avenue advertising executive with a serious case of bad timing as he is mistaken for a spy, sending him on a 3,000-mile chase across the country. Eva Marie Saint, James Mason and Martin Landau co-star in this vastly entertaining romantic thriller, featuring the signature crop-duster chase set piece, a grand climax on Mount Rushmore, and one of Bernard Herrmann’s most stirring scores. (1959, 131 min, 35mm) + TORN CURTAIN This espionage yarn stars Paul Newman as an American physicist who plans to defect to East Germany and hand over important secrets to the communists. But his scheme turns out to be more complicated when it's discovered he has a different plan that will place him, along with his secretary and fiancée (Julie Andrews), in danger. For his 50th film, Hitch orchestrated Newman engaged in the most brutal death struggle yet filmed. (1966, 128 min, DCP)

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? + CARRIE

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? Cashing in on the notorious real-life rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, producer/director Robert Aldrich (Kiss Me Deadly) smartly secured the services of the battling divas for his twisted psycho-drama about two sisters, one a former child vaudeville star and the other a crippled ex-silent star of the screen, who are bound together in hate in a house of fear. Both Davis and co-star Victor Buono received Oscar noms. (1962, 134 min, 35mm) + CARRIE High school is a snake pit as Carrie White (Sissy Spacek, in an Oscar nominated performance) ignites her telekinetic powers to thwart that special brand of cruelty unique to teenage girls. This melding of minds between author Stephen King and director Brian De Palma created one of the horror genre’s powerhouse classics. Piper Laurie (also Oscar nominated for her turn), Betty Buckley, William Katt, and Amy Irving co-star. (1976, 98 min, DCP)

FRANKENSTEIN + BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN

FRANKENSTEIN Still regarded as the definitive film version of Mary Shelley’s classic tale of tragedy and horror, James Whale’s low budget wonder made unknown character actor Boris Karloff a new icon of terror. Working closely with production designer Danny Hall and make-up artist Jack Pierce, Whale created some of the most archetypal images in cinema. (1931, 72 min, DCP) + BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN The elegantly eccentric Dr. Praetorious compels Dr. Frankenstein to build a mate for his monster. An amazing Elsa Lanchester plays both the bride and Mary Shelley, joined by Karloff, Colin Clive and the incredible Ernest Thesinger. A rare case of the sequel improving upon its source, James Whale’s indescribably stylish, witty and grotesque film remains a wholly original creation to this day. (1935, 75 min, DCP)

ROSEMARY'S BABY + IT'S ALIVE!

ROSEMARY’S BABY Roman Polanski’s first American picture depicts the mental deterioration of a pregnant woman (Mia Farrow) as she is drawn into the horrifying suspicion that the child she is carrying is not of this world. Ingenious in design, the camerawork leaves the most grotesque frights to the viewer’s imagination. Ruth Gordon won the Oscar for her role as the nosy neighbor, backed by John Cassavetes and Ralph Bellamy in creepy turns. (1968, 137 min, DCP) + IT’S ALIVE! The use of an experimental maternity drug creates a violent mutant baby, whose rampage terrorizes the city of Los Angeles and leaves its parents bitterly conflicted over its fate. A strong and affecting showcase of the late writer-director Larry Cohen’s trademark combination of strident social commentary and low-budget filmmaking creativity boosted by maestro Bernard Herrmann’s unsettling score and John P. Ryan’s riveting, rollercoaster ride performance as the baby’s father. (1974, 91 min, HD digital)

INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS + THE THING

INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS A doctor investigates the growing fear of his patients that their loved ones are growing distant, and soon finds himself alone against a terrifying, unstoppable invasion of cold, emotionless aliens determined to replace the human race. One of science fiction’s most powerful political allegories, this adaptation of Jack Finney’s novel is delivered with noir-like atmosphere by director Don Siegel. (1956, 80 min, 35mm) + THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD The crew of a remote Arctic outpost make a discovery buried deep under the ice, and are soon fighting for their lives when they accidentally defrost an alien menace. The first adaptation of John W. Campbell’s sci-fi horror story “Who Goes There?” is suspensefully realized by director Christian Nyby (with the unmistakable imprint of writer-producer Howard Hawks); the cast includes Kenneth Tobey, Margaret Sheridan, and James Arness in the title role. (1951, 86 min, 35mm)

GOODFELLAS + CASINO

*Double Feature!* 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)
