As of March 11, in addition to increased sanitation throughout our facilities and other precautions we are taking, we are also reducing seating capacity in each of our theaters to a number that will allow for what is presently considered sufficient space for social distancing.
We are evaluating the situation as it evolves on a daily basis and will continue to follow the guidance of government agencies. We understand that circumstances will likely remain fluid in the coming days and weeks. We will adapt accordingly and update you with any changes to our programs.
“A disorienting and undifferentiated amalgam of almost lyrical poeticism and expressionist nightmare.”– Wally Hammond, Time Out
NEW RESTORATION! Shows Added!
This widely acclaimed film from Soviet director Elem Klimov is a stunning, senses-shattering plunge into the dehumanizing horrors of war. As Nazi forces encroach on his small village in present-day Belarus, teenage Flyora (Aleksei Kravchenko, in one of the screen’s most searing depictions of anguish since Renée Falconetti’s Joan of Arc) eagerly joins the Soviet resistance. Rather than the adventure and glory he envisioned, what he finds is a waking nightmare of unimaginable carnage and cruelty—rendered with a feverish, otherworldly intensity by Klimov’s subjective camerawork and expressionistic sound design. Nearly suppressed by Soviet censors who took eight years to approve its script, Come and See is perhaps the most visceral, impossible-to-forget antiwar film ever made.
