WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 18 DOUBLE FEATURE

MAGIC MIKE 7:00

A contemporary Saturday Night Fever of sorts, this high entertainment follows upstart male stripper Alex Pettyfer who is mentored by veteran dancer Channing Tatum.

Cobb and Linda Blair star; William Peter Blatty adapted the Oscar-winning screenplay from his novel. (1973, 132 min/Director's cut, DCP)

Widowed mother Amelia is already at wit’s end, between the difficulties of her job and her ambivalence toward Samuel, her imaginative, somewhat hyperactive child. This state of affairs is made more difficult still by the arrival of a mysterious and disturbing storybook. And when the creature from the book seems to be manifesting inside their home, mother and child are both pushed to the edge of madness. Writer/director Jennifer Kent's debut feature is one of the most intense and moving horror movies in recent memory, boosted by award-worthy performances by Essie Davis and the precocious Noah Wiseman.

THURSDAY FEBRUARY 26 NEW 35MM PRINT!

THE SACRIFICE 8:00

Andrei Tarkovsky’s unforgettable final film, made while the director was dying of cancer, is nothing less than the story of the end of the world.

Winner of the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, The Sacrifice boasts rapturous cinematography by Ingmar Bergman’s longtime collaborator Sven Nykvist. (Synopsis courtesy of BAMcinématek.)

VERTIGO IN 70MM Sat & Sun (2:30), 5:15, 8:00: Mon 5:15, 8:00

Early-retired San Francisco policeman James Stewart is asked to follow a friend’s wife prone to mysterious absences. As his detecting soon turns to obsession, the film builds to dizzying heights of duplicity, derangement and delusion. Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece is his most powerful and personal work, and has been challenging viewers across the decades to decode its layers of symbolism. Co-starring Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes and Bernard Herrmann’s indelible score. Voted the Greatest Film of All Time by Sight & Sound magazine. (1958, 129 min, 70mm)
