SATURDAY MAY 25 SPECIAL PRESENTATION ($20)

SAN FRANCISCO PREMIERE! ONE DAY ONLY! BUY TICKETS

Sergei Bondarchuk's WAR AND PEACE 1:00 NEW RESTORATION!

At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet film industry set out to prove it could outdo Hollywood with a production that would dazzle the world: a monumental, awe-inspiring adaptation of Tolstoy’s classic tome in which the fates of three souls—the blundering, good-hearted Pierre; the heroically tragic Prince Andrei; and the radiant, tempestuous Natasha—collide amid the tumult of the Napoleonic Wars. Employing a cast of thousands and an array of innovative camera techniques, director Sergei Bondarchuk conjures a sweeping vision of grand balls that glitter with rococo beauty and breathtaking battles that overwhelm with their expressionistic power. As a statement of Soviet cinema’s might, War and Peace succeeded wildly, garnering the Academy Award for best foreign-language film and setting a new standard for epic moviemaking.

(1966, in Russian and French with English subtitles, 422 min, DCP 'Scope)

All times approximate:

  • Part 1 @ 1:00 [10 min break] Part 2 @ 3:40
  • [30 min intermission]
  • Part 3 @ 6:00 [10 min break] Part 4 @ 7:30
  • [Exit @ 9:15]

"You are never, ever, going to see anything to equal it ... as spectacular as a movie can possibly be." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"Above all, WAR AND PEACE is an orgy of cinematic opulence—dizzying tracking shots, trompe-l'oeil matte paintings, split-screens, superimpositions—made by a triple-threat filmmaker (actor/writer/director) in full command of the medium. To see it is to not quite believe it." - Scott Foundas, foundasonfilm

ROLLING THUNDER REVUE: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese
(3:15), 6:00, 8:45
BUY TICKETS

Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese captures the troubled spirit of America in 1975 and the joyous music that Dylan performed during the fall of that year. Part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream, Rolling Thunder is a one of a kind experience, from master filmmaker Martin Scorsese. The tour took place between 1975 and 1976, and found the musician playing a series of theater shows with little advanced notice. Among the participants were Joan Baez, Roger McGuinn, and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, while one-off special guests included Ringo Starr, Patti Smith and Joni Mitchell. Starring: Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Allen Ginsberg, and Sam Shepard. The film is not rated. With a running time of 142 minutes. DCP

 
     
   


WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 25

Another Planet presents
LOVETT OR LEAVE IT
Doors 7:00, Show 8:00

Lovett or Leave It is a wildly popular, critically beloved and deeply sexy podcast hosted by former Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett. Each week, he's joined by comedians, journalists, activists, elected officials, actors (not annoying ones), and musicians to break down the latest news, quiz the audience, and mock the endless frustrations and absurdities of our broken political nightmare factory.

Jon Lovett is a former presidential speechwriter, as well as a TV writer, podcast host, and straight shooter WIDELY respected on both sides. In 2017, he founded Crooked Media with Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor, to build a progressive media network with shows, analysis, and sweet, sweet content that informs, entertains, and inspires action. There, he co-hosts “Pod Save America” and hosts “Lovett or Leave It,” two of the most popular political podcasts in the country. Before Crooked, he served as a presidential speechwriter in the Obama White House, co-created a comedy on NBC called “1600 Penn” (which was cancelled after one perfect season), and wrote speeches for Hillary Clinton. Jon was also once named “Washington’s funniest celebrity” before he left the nation’s capital forever.
