Newly restored prints of unforgettable masterpieces


Dir.: Věra Chytilová
| 76 minutes

Czech director Věra Chytilová reached the pinnacle of her career with Daisies, a film portraying two young women who decide to take an irreverent stand against conformist Czech society. An unmissable gem that was reviled by the Communist authorities, this is a film that offers a refreshing dash of cinematic inventiveness.

A Hole in the Moon

Dir.: Uri Zohar
| 72 minutes

A wild, zany parody of Israel in the early 1960s. Zohar is a new immigrant who opens a kiosk in the middle of nowhere. The absence of clients doesn’t deter Heffner from opening a competing business directly across the road. A new digital copy.

Mamma Roma

Dir.: Pier Paolo Pasolini
| 106 minutes

After many years of working on the streets, a middle-age whore (Anna Magnani) saves money to buy an apartment and retires from prostitution. She brings her teenage son, Ettore, who was raised alone in the country, to live with her, and Ettore becomes her pride and joy. However, her past haunts her with tragic consequences.

Our Music

Dir.: Jean-Luc Godard
| 80 minutes

Jean-Luc Godard explores violence, media, and morality. In the first segment, Hell, authentic battle footage is intercut with scenes from war films. In Purgatory, journalists Judith and Olga travel to Sarajevo for a lecture featuring renowned poets and writers. In Heaven, Olga strolls by an isolated lake inexplicably occupied by the U.S. military.

Singin’ in the Rain

Dir.: Gene Kelly, Stanley Donen
| 103 minutes

Silent movies are being replaced by talking pictures. A tap dancer-turned-matinee idol (Gene Kelly) is caught in that bumpy transition, as are his buddy (Donald O’Connor), prospective ladylove (Debbie Reynolds), and shrewish costar (Jean Hagen). A brand new 4K restoration celebrating the film’s 70th anniversary.
