WEDNESDAY APRIL 1 DOUBLE FEATURE

GREY GARDENS 3:30, 7:30 NEW RESTORATION
Grey Gardens is the unbelievable but true story of Mrs. Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edie, the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Mother and daughter live in a world of their own behind the towering privets that surround their decaying 28-room East Hampton mansion known as “Grey Gardens.” Together they descended into a strange life of dependence and eccentricity that no one had ever shared until the Maysles arrived with their camera and tape recorder. The film is a bittersweet love story, a record of the powerful and complex relationship between mother and daughter. A film by David and Albert Maysles, Elen Hovde, Muffie Meyer, Susan Froemke. (1976, 94 min, DCP)

+ PINK FLAMINGOS 5:20, 9:20

John Waters exploded into international infamy with this darkly comic, no-budget parade of the perverse. The story two monstrous women competing for the title of “Filthiest Person Alive,” is a carnival of weirdoes, outcasts, and deviants that’s custom-designed to offend! This is the 25th anniversary edition with bonus footage added post-film. (1972, 108 min, 35mm)

 
     
   


THURSDAY APRIL 2 DOUBLE FEATURE

THE TRIAL 7:00 NEW DIGITAL RESTORATION

"Say what you like, but 'The Trial' is the best film I have ever made." So said Orson Welles of his visually stunning adaptation of Franz Kafka's famous tale, in which protagonist Josef K (Anthony Perkins, rarely better) is placed under arrest by shadowy government agents on unspecified charges. The hapless K is dropkicked into a shadowy nightmare world vividly realized by Welles, operating with complete control and creative freedom. Co-starring Jeanne Moreau and Welles himself, voicing 11 different characters. (1962, 118 min, DCP)

+ ELEVATOR TO THE GALLOWS 9:15

Louis Malle’s masterpiece of suspense and film noir starring Jeanne Moreau, in the role that catapulted her to international stardom and ushered in the French New Wave. (1957, in French with English subtitles, 88 min, 35mm)
