BULLITT / BLOW-UP Double Feature
July 24 only
In conjunction with FraenkelLAB and the upcoming gallery opening of Bullitt, Blow-Up, & Other Dynamite Movie Posters of the 20th Century, we bring you a double feature of two of the best films of the late ’60s. Curated by Ralph DeLuca, the exhibit will run from July 21 through September 24, 2016; audience members are encouraged to visit the exhibit before catching the double-feature.
BULLITT is mandatory viewing for anyone who has ever spent time in San Francisco. Starring Steve McQueen as the effortlessly cool Frank Bullitt, Bullitt chases mob boss Pete Ross through the streets of San Francisco in one of the most thrilling car chases ever filmed. We’re proud to present BULLITT in 35mm.
Taking place on the other side of the world in the midst of the “Swinging London” revolution of the late ’60s, BLOW-UP stars David Hemmings and Vanessa Redgrave in one of the most fashionable and evocative films of its era. Taking a break from his high-fashion shoots by taking photos in the park, Thomas (Hemmings) ends up finds something potentially sinister going on at the edge of the frame. Directed and written by Michelangelo Antonioni, and quite possibly his most accessible film, BLOW-UP acts both as a document of London at its most fashionable and way to explore the tension and uncertainty of technology, surveillance and the structure of modern society. BLOW-UP will be presented as a restored DCP.
Special double-feature pricing: see one film or both for $15.
