Classics

Many classic films are just as powerful today as when they were first released. We add such films from many genres to our schedule throughout the season. Many are shown on the occasion of their rereleases, in fresh, new or restored prints.

Also known as The Big Carnival, Ace in the Hole is perhaps Billy Wilder's most corrosive and cynical look at American culture.

Kirk Douglas stars as a sleazebag reporter who hopes to jump-start his career by exploiting (and prolonging) the suffering of a miner trapped in a cave--a delirium of tabloid journalism. With Jan Sterling. (112 mins.)
