NOSFERATU

Directed by F. MURNAU

 

(1922)  In this highly influential silent horror film, the mysterious Count Orlok (Max Schreck) summons Thomas Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) to his remote Transylvanian castle in the mountains. 

Rather than depicting Dracula as a shape-shifting monster or debonair gentleman, Murnau's Graf Orlok  is a nightmarish, spidery creature- perhaps the most genuinely disturbing incarnation of vampirism yet envisioned. Nosferatu was an atypical expressionist film in that much of it was shot on location in the Carpathian Mountains. 

SILENT with Musical Score.

NIGHTMARE ALLEY

(New 4K Restoration) 

Check out this new restoration before Guillermo del Toro's Buffalo-based Nightmare Alley opens!

Starring TYRONE POWER

Darkness lurks behind the bright lights of a traveling carnival in one of the most haunting and perverse film noirs of the 1940s. Adapted from the scandalous best seller by William Lindsay Gresham, Nightmare Alley gave Tyrone Power a chance to subvert his matinee-idol image with a ruthless performance as Stan Carlisle, a small-time carny whose unctuous charm propels him to fame as a charlatan spiritualist, but whose unchecked ambition leads him down a path of moral degradation and self-destruction.

While the park's mastermind, billionaire John Hammond (RICHARD ATTENBOROUGH), assures everyone that the facility is safe, they find out otherwise when various ferocious predators break free and go on the hunt.

"Jurassic Park is a spectacle of special effects and life-like animatronics, with some of Spielberg's best sequences of sustained awe and sheer terror since Jaws"

THE PLAYER

NEW 4K RESTORATION!

Directed by ROBERT ALTMAN

CA Hollywood studio executive with a shaky moral compass (Tim Robbins) finds himself caught up in a criminal situation that would be right at home in one of his movie projects, in this biting industry satire from Robert Altman. Mixing elements of film noir with sly insider comedy, The Player, based on a novel by Michael Tolkin, functions as both a nifty stylish murder story and a commentary on its own making, and it is stocked with a heroic supporting cast (Peter Gallagher, Whoopi Goldberg, Greta Scacchi, Dean Stockwell, Fred Ward) and a lineup of star cameos that make for an astonishing Hollywood who’s who.
