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.

This restored rerelease ranks among the few films about artists to be themselves masterpieces.
Edvard Munch is a stunning, unorthodox recreation of the Norwegian painter's life, from the director of such equally inimitable classics as The War Game and La Commune. The New York Times calls it a "magnificent portrait both of a crushingly repressive culture...and of a man tormented by religion, madness, sexual jealousy and ever-present death." (166 mins.)
