SUNDAY NOVEMBER 23 DOUBLE FEATURE

CITIZEN KANE 1:30, 6:40

The story of the tumultuous personal and professional life of a newspaper magnate, Orson Welles' first film displays his genius, wit, imagination, and command of the medium to full advantage. Decades on, Kane remains unequaled for its dazzling cinematic inventiveness. Welles co-stars with fellow Mercury Players Joseph Cotton, Dorothy Comingore, Ruth Warrick, Everett Sloan and Agnes Moorhead. Photographed by Gregg Toland, music by Bernard Herrmann. (1941, 119 min, 35mm)

+ THERE WILL BE BLOOD 3:45, 8:55

This eccentric, haunting modern epic stars powerhouse Daniel Day-Lewis as an oil pioneer whose trailblazing spirit is equaled only by his murderous ambition. Both exquisitely intimate and boldly symphonic, writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson crafted a film for the ages. Paul Dano and Kevin J. O'Connor co-star. (2007, 158 min, 35mm 'Scope)

 

MONDAY NOVEMBER 24 PRIVATE EVENT

     
   


TUESDAY NOVEMBER 25

BOYHOOD 5:00, 8:15

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Boyhood by writer/director Richard Linklater is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's "Yellow" to Arcade Fire's "Deep Blue." Boyhood is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. (2014, 163 min, DCP)

 
     
   


WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 26 MADELINE KAHN DOUBLE FEATURE

WHAT'S UP DOC? 7:00

Perhaps the closest re-creation of 1930s screwball comedies ever produced, Peter Bogdanovich’s San Francisco-shot romp stars Ryan O’Neal as a stuffy musicologist whose life is endlessly complicated by nutty live wire Barbra Streisand. Madeline Kahn and Kenneth Mars co-star. (1972, 94 min, 35mm)

+ BLAZING SADDLES 8:50

Mel Brooks still has yet to top this truly blazing, tasteless gut-buster, a riotous western spoof pairing Gene Wilder with Cleavon Little as the first black sheriff of a stunned town. Brooks appears in multiple supporting roles, along with regulars Harvey Korman, Madeline Kahn and Dom DeLuise. (1974, 93 min, 35mm 'Scope)
