Le Cercle Rouge
Jean-Pierre Melville, 1970


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.

Jean-Pierre Melville's legendary film noir classic: "The kind of experience that makes you glad movies exist."--New York Times

"Hardboiled karma! A deluxe piece of heist film engineering! A virtuoso display!"
--Michael Sragow, The New Yorker

"The epitome of cool."
--J. Hoberman, Village Voice

Presented by John Woo in its fully restored version, Jean-Pierre Melville's legendary film noir classic Le Cercle Rouge is only now able to be seen in its entirety in the U.S. Starring tough guy icons Yves Montand, Alain Delon, and Gian Maria Volonte as thieves executing a jewel heist from the Place Vendome, it's a an elegantly severe look at Paris's criminal underworld.
