In the road movie Scarecrow, Al Pacino and Gene Hackman deliver “the performances of their lives” (Guardian) as a homeless ex-sailor and ex-con who meet while hitchhiking up the California coast. The film follows their struggles as the new friends head to Pittsburgh, where they dream of opening a car wash together. Winner (tie) of the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival. (112 mins., 35mm)

Based on the writings of Jack London, Emperor of the North stars Lee Marvin as a wily hobo who takes a newcomer (Keith Carradine) under his wing, all while trying to evade a sadistic conductor (Ernest Borgnine) who’ll stop at nothing to keep them off his train. Directed by Robert Aldrich (What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, Kiss Me Deadly). (118 mins., 4K DCP)
