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.

New Documentary

Nonfiction filmmaking holds a strong appeal for many committed directors and producers. This ongoing series lets you sample wide-ranging approaches to the contemporary documentary.

This evening we present archivist and filmmaker Serge Bromberg's painstaking restoration of A Trip to the Moon Trip (a famed short by Georges Méliès, the pioneering French filmmaker celebrated in Martin Scorsese’s Hugo) and The Extraordinary Voyage, Bromberg’s film about his decade-long project to restore Trip.

That restoration was one of the most complex restoration efforts ever. The Extraordinary Voyage includes interviews with Costa Gavras, Martin Scorsese, Michel Gondry, and others (60 mins, video). A Trip to the Moon features a soundtrack by the French group Air. (16 mins, video)

Unfortunately, Bromberg will not be introducing, as previously announced.
