To Kill A Mockingbird
This new year marks the 40th Anniversary of one of the 60’s most wonderful films: To Kill A Mockingbird. Harper Lee’s beautiful novel of growing up in the South was transformed into a film of delicate power and remarkable honesty. Mary Badham and Philip Alford deliver mesmerizing performances as the precocious and vulnerable children of Southern lawyer Atticus Finch (Gregory Peck, in an Oscar-winning role). When the quietly heroic Finch is called upon to defend an African American man (Brock Peters) against a rape charge, the fragile cover of childhood is put to a demanding test. Also in the fine cast are John Megna, Alice Ghostly, the voice of Kim Stanley and, in his feature film debut, Robert Duvall as Boo Radley. The Oscar-winning screenplay was written by Horton Foote. Directed by Robert Mulligan. B&W. 35mm. 129 mins. 1962. PRESENTED IN A BEAUTIFUL STUDIO ARCHIVE PRINT! Nightly at 7:00 and 9:30; Wed, Sat and Sun matinees at 2:00 and 4:30.
Kiss Me Deadly
Mickey Spillane’s hardboiled hero Mike Hammer gets an atomic-age makeover, Hollywood style. The quest for the great whatsit results in a terrifying trip to the end of the world, now made much more illuminating compliments of this fully restored print. See what the fuss is all about. Starring Ralph Meeker, Cloris Leachman, Albert Dekker, Paul Stewart. Written by A. I. Bezzerides. Directed by Robert Aldrich. B&W. 106 mins. 1955. Wed at 1:00, 4:40 & 8:15; Thurs at 8:15 only!
The Killer's Kiss
Stanley Kubrick's THE KILLING, originally scheduled for these dates has been postponed. The distributor has informed us that their only print has been damaged to the extent that it can no longer be played. It won't be until sometime later in the year that a new print will be struck. In the meantime, as a substitute, we will be playing KILLER'S KISS, also directed by Stanley Kubrick. The film was produced in 1955, a year before THE KILLING. It was shot on a very low budget in New York City. The story is about a young boxer who falls for a girl who is under the control of a sadistic gangster. Kubrick not only wrote and directed the film, but photographed and edited it as well. It stars Jamie Smith, Irene Kane and Frank Silvera. 67 mins. Showtimes for KILLER'S KISS will be 3:00, 6:40 and 10:15 on Wednesday and 6:40 and 10:15 on Thursday.
THE RETURN OFAbel Ferrara
America’s foremost maverick film director, Abel Ferrara returns to the Roxie–his infamous April ’94 visit will never be forgotten–with a batch of six films: four bonafide Ferrara classics and two theatrical premieres! Due to Mr. Ferrara schedule, he is unable to attend this time around. Sorry. But he may show his face for the premiere of a new film later this year. Stay tuned to www.roxie.com
"Ever wonder what happened to the hard-as-nails, tough-guy, couldn't-give-a-rat's-hiney kind of filmmaker, like John Ford, John Huston and Samuel Fuller? Well, he's still alive and well in Abel Ferrara" -- Jeff Anderson, S.F. EXAMINER
