IWUD 2014 poster web

Ten sensational days and nights of pre-code crime, proto-noir, and film noir featuring thirty classics and curios spanning the years 1932 to 1965. These incredible films have been pulled from the vaults of the Warner Archive and programmed exclusively for the Roxie Theater by Elliot Lavine. This year’s I WAKE UP DREAMING cavalcade will be the first ever presented entirely in DIGITAL. The Roxie Theater boasts one of the most outstanding digital projection systems in San Francisco and these specially prepared and supervised digital transfers are guaranteed to look astonishing on the big screen — where they belong! I WAKE UP DREAMING is committed to the idea that classic motion pictures are best viewed on a big screen in a large dark room full of complete strangers. It is our hope that programmers and exhibitors everywhere will explore the seemingly limitless number of films now available to movie theaters in the digital format. ————————– THE-UNFAITHFUL
