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.

Nominated for six Academy Awards (Best Picture, Director, Music, Cinematography, Art Direction, and Costume Design, with wins for the last three), Roman Polanski’s epic Tesshas been breathtakingly restored and brought back to cinemas. This lush, haunting adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s novel stars Nastassia Kinski as the title character, a proud innocent peasant girl destroyed by Victorian double standards. (171 mins., 4K DCP)
