WEDNESDAY MAY 23 & THURSDAY MAY 24 PROJECTED IN 70MM

READY PLAYER ONE 5:15, 8:00
In the year 2045, people can escape their harsh reality in the OASIS, an immersive virtual world where you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone—the only limits are your own imagination. OASIS creator James Halliday (Mark Rylance) left his immense fortune and control of the Oasis to the winner of a contest designed to find a worthy heir. When unlikely hero Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) conquers the first challenge of the reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends—known as the High Five—are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS and their world. Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s pop culture homage is a sweetly nostalgic thrill ride. Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, and Simon Pegg co-star. (2018, 140 min, 70mm ‘Scope)

“‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ is one of the greatest and most radical cinematic experiences of all time. I consider it a great privilege to be involved in offering that experience to a new generation of moviegoers in its original analogue glory.” – Christopher Nolan

TUESDAY MAY 29 CLINT EASTWOOD DOUBLE FEATURE

A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS 7:00 NEW 4K RESTORATION
Clint Eastwood’s first Man with No Name adventure finds him double playing two rival gangs in a small border town. In remaking Yojimbo‭, director Sergio Leone single-handedly took the “spaghetti western” to another level, simultaneously launching the international careers of Eastwood and composer Ennio Morricone. (1964, 99 min, 4K DCP ‘Scope)

Restoration carried out by Cineteca di Bologna and Unidis Jolly Film at L'Immagine Ritrovata laboratory in association with MGM. Restoration funding provided by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and The Film Foundation.

+ DIRTY HARRY 8:55

Clint Eastwood’s renegade detective Harry Callahan throws due process out the window when it stands in the way of apprehending a psycho hippie on the loose in SF. Don Siegel’s crisp, beautifully paced film is a quintessential work in ‘70s action cinema, stunningly shot by Bruce Surtees and scored by Lalo Schifrin. (1971, 102 min, DCP ‘Scope)
