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.

"One of Truffaut’s best and rarest films!"—New Yorker

In The Soft Skin, a married literary critic (Jean Desailly) meets a young stewardess (Francoise Dorléac) on a Lisbon lecture tour and tries to continue the affair back in Paris despite the hurdles his daily life presents. Truffaut wanted to depict "a truly modern love affair, in planes and elevators, all the harassments of la vie quotidienne." (119 mins., 35mm)
