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.

Scandalous classic with Mick Jagger and Anita Pallenberg.

Receiving an "X" rating when first released, Performance seemed destined to be a cult film from the very start.

A sadistic London thug (James Fox) forced into hiding finds his way into the Notting Hill home of a once-famous rock star (Mick Jagger), who lives there with two mysterious beauties (Anita Pallenberg, Michelle Breton).

The house specialty of psychedelic mushrooms leads to head trips, mind-screwing, and the swapping of both bodies and personalities. (105 mins.)

Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
