If you haven't seen ANATOMY OF A FALL yet, join us this Friday evening, Jan. 5, for a special screening and discussion with director Justine Triet in person! Triet’s sly and formidable Palme d’Or winner takes the form of both courtroom procedural and marriage postmortem, with an astonishingly modulated performance at its center by the great Sandra Hüller.

Ari Aster will join us tomorrow night, Jan 3, for a screening of BEAU IS AFRAID! Aster follows up his brilliant HEREDITARY and MIDSOMMAR with perhaps his most fully realized vision yet: a gonzo dark comedy that gets uncomfortably close to a man (a brilliantly committed Joaquin Phoenix) who’s falling into a million pieces as he desperately tries to get back home. John Waters’s #1 film of 2023!

We're pleased to present it on our big screen in 3-D January 5–7. Author Brian Selznick, who wrote the book THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET on which the film is based, will appear in person on January 5!

A seminal work of folk horror, THE WICKER MAN was released on December 6, 1973. A police sergeant arrives at a quiet Scottish village in search of a missing young woman whom the locals claim never existed. Stranger still are the rituals performed by the locals who long abandoned Christianity. The more the officer learns about these practices, the closer he thinks he gets to solving his case, although he is really being gradually ensnared in a nefarious plot.

THE WICKER MAN screens Dec 30 & 31, as part of our ongoing series Disreputable Cinema. See the film anew, and on the eve of the New Year, in a gorgeous 4K restoration created for its 50th anniversary! https://bit.ly/47jmcee

FAR FROM HEAVEN (35mm) screens one last time today, Dec 23, at 3:30 p.m. as part of our Todd Haynes retrospective. Haynes prepared for the film by creating an "image book" featuring collages of advertisements, film stills, magazine photos, sketches, and more that served as visual inspiration for the film's design.

You can see a selection of these pages and other materials for this film and more in the exhibit "Reflected Forms: Story and Character in the Films of Todd Haynes."

12/15/2023

The rare chance to see the films of beloved Swedish director Roy Andersson on the big screen kicks off this evening with his towering SONGS FROM THE SECOND FLOOR (2000). It’s a pure dose of what has come to be known as the Andersson style: loosely related vignettes, filmed in long takes and meticulously crafted compositions worthy of Jacques Tati or Buster Keaton, on sets made with an artisan’s astonishing attention to detail and a poet’s ability to cut everything but the essential. Andersson’s subject is nothing more or less than the experience of being human, from the trivialities of daily life to the horrors—and, at times, the beauty—that people create. The brilliance of his films is a strong rejoinder to the melancholic despair of their world view.

We'll be showing Andersson's films all weekend and through the end of the month. See the full lineup at bit.ly/anderssonmomi
