AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE

Nov 10, 2006

HOLLYWOOD - The American Cinematheque at the Aero and Egyptian Theatres presents 70 MM Film Classics, November 30 - December 2 at the Egyptian Theatre and December 23 at the Aero Theatre. If you are longing for that hypnotically fascinating sensation of being riveted to the silver screen, not just by the wonder of the presentation of 70 mm, but by the greatness of the film itself, then you won't want to miss our screenings of these classics - LORD JIM, THE SOUND OF MUSIC and CLEOPATRA.

On Thursday, November 30th is LORD JIM (1965, Sony Repertory, 154 min.) starring Peter O'Toole, James Mason and Eli Wallach.

On Friday, December 1st is the musical THE SOUND OF MUSIC (1965, 20th Century Fox, 174 min.) starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. Winner of five Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director (Robert Wise) and Best Actress (Julie Andrews).

On Saturday, December 2nd is a screening of a brand new restored 70 MM print of CLEOPATRA (1963, 20th Century Fox, 248 min.) starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Rex Harrison.

On Saturday, December 23rd is a screening of LAWRENCE OF ARABIA (1962, Columbia, 216 min.) starring Peter O'Toole, Omar Sharif, Anthony Quinn, Claude Rains and Alec Guiness. Winner of 7 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director.

All screenings are at the Lloyd E. Theatre at the historic Egyptian (6712 Hollywood Boulevard between Highland and Las Palmas) in Hollywood and the Max Palevsky Theatre at the Aero Theatre (1328 Montana Ave) in Santa Monica. All guests subject to availability.

Like many of our American Cinematheque patrons, the spectacle of watching a 70mm film on the big, big screen is one of our very favorite things. There is something about the grandeur, the monumental sweep of events as they unfold with this larger gauge format that tends to enthrall even the most jaded of film goers.


Thursday, November 30, 2006 | Egyptian Theatre
The Thursday, November 30th program is a 7:30 PM screening of LORD JIM, (1965, Sony Repertory, 154 min.). This vast, atmospheric adaptation of Joseph Conrad's classic novel was aimed at recapturing the magic of LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, pairing actor Peter O'Toole with a gifted director Richard Brooks (IN COLD BLOOD) and a prestigious literary work. O'Toole is perfectly cast as an idealistic sailor branded a coward for abandoning an apparently-sinking ship during a storm. He is then given a chance to redeem his conscience and his soul by aiding a native revolution in the South Pacific jungle. Equally mesmerizing are Eli Wallach as a sadistic warlord, James Mason as an avaricious mercenary and Daliah Lavi as a courageous native girl. This superb restoration of the film by Columbia Pictures has resulted in one of the sharpest, most eye-popping 70 mm. prints. With Paul Lukas, Curt Jurgens.

Friday, December 1, 2006 | Egyptian Theatre
The Friday, December 1st program is a 7:30 PM screening of THE SOUND OF MUSIC, (1965, 20th Century Fox, 174 min.). For many, THE SOUND OF MUSIC is the ultimate 70 mm. experience, from the first silent, sweeping shots of the Austrian Alps, to Julie Andrews suddenly bursting into song like a force of nature. Andrews plays Maria, a vivacious young Austrian nun who is sent to be governess to the motherless Von Trapp family children. There she brings love and music into the regimented, somber house and unwittingly she falls in love with the Baron (Christopher Plummer). But things turn dark for the Baron as his anti-Nazi stance becomes increasingly unpopular in pre-WW II Austria. An Oscar-winner for Best Picture and Robert Wise's flawless direction and Best Actress Julie Andrews, this story of The Von Trapp Family Singers is a reason, a virtual commandment to go see movies on the Big Screen. It's also a good reason to hear songs "Do-Re-Mi," "My Favorite Things," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," and "The Sound of Music." Co-starring Eleanor Parker, Anna Lee, Marni Nixon and Angela Cartwright, with a wonderful script by Ernest Lehman.

Saturday, December 2, 2006 | Egyptian Theatre
The Saturday, December 2nd program is a 7:30 PM screening of a Brand New Restored 70 MM Print of CLEOPATRA, (1963, 20th Century Fox, 248 min.). Cleopatra (Elizabeth Taylor) attempts to secure her power as Queen of Egypt by charming Julius Caesar (Rex Harrison) and her lover Mark Antony (Richard Burton). But despite her efforts, Egypt is ultimately integrated into the Roman Empire. Directed and co-written by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, this epic historical drama boasts spectacular sets and costumes that simply have to be seen in 70mm in this latest restoration from 20th Century Fox. Cleopatra's spectacular entry into Rome with her golden Sphinx pulled by thousands is a true cinematic moment!!



Saturday, December 23, 2006 | Aero Theatre

The Saturday, December 23rd program is a 7:30 PM screening of LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, (1962, Columbia, 216 min.). The beautiful, near-godlike Peter O'Toole stars as the tortured, Man Who Would Not Be King in director David Lean's absolute masterpiece - as close to perfect as a film can get. Featuring one of the finest casts in any motion picture: Omar Sharif (in his first major English-speaking role), Anthony Quinn, Jack Hawkins, Claude Rains and Alec Guinness as Prince Feisal. D.P. Freddie Young's 70 mm. photography is rightly considered to be a work of genius, matched by Robert Bolt and Michael Wilson's screenplay, Maurice Jarre's stirring score and John Box's production design. Winner of 7 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. "When you're in the desert, you look into infinity ... It makes you feel terribly small, and also in a strange way, quite big." - David Lean.
