SUSPIRIA (35mm, uncut)
First show: August 11
All shows SOLD OUT! In 35mm, uncut, from the Chicago Cinema Society’s rare Italian 98-minute print!
Rescued from a closed Italian cinema, the Chicago Cinema Society recently discovered a print of SUSPIRIA that not only runs for a full and uncut 98 minutes, but is also largely untouched, with strong color and minimal fading and wear. The Roxie is proud to be part of the tour of Dario Argento’s masterpiece, and to bring SUSPIRIA the way it was meant to be seen to San Francisco.
Suzy (Jessica Harper) travels to Germany to attend ballet school. When she arrives, late on a stormy night, no one lets her in, and she sees Pat (Eva Axén), another student, fleeing from the school. When Pat reaches her apartment, she is murdered. The next day, Suzy is admitted to her new school, but has a difficult time settling in. She hears noises, and often feels ill. As more people die, Suzy uncovers the terrifying secret history of the place.
Please note: because this is an Italian-language print, we will be “soft subtitling” the print, projecting digital subtitles below the print. There can be issues with timing with soft subtitles, but we feel that this is the best way to get SUSPIRIA onscreen.
