8/8-10: 27th anniversary screening at the Capitol, Jean Renoir, Richard Pryor & more!

Two young Indian boys grow up with their country in epic MIDNIGHT'S CHILDREN
Salman Rushdie adapted his own novel for Deepa Mehta’s epic film version of MIDNIGHT'S CHILDREN. He also narrates the story, which tells of two Indian boys—one from a wealthy family, the other the son of a beggar—who are born at midnight on August 15, 1947, the day India broke free of British rule. But the two are switched at birth, so they lead very different lives during the next 30 years -- different from each other and different from the lives they would have had. Yet each experiences growing pains that reflect those of their young nation. See this new movie from the director of the FIRE/EARTH/WATER trilogy in 35mm on Friday or Saturday. Here's the trailer.

Richard Pryor plays three roles in hilarious, raunchy WHICH WAY IS UP?
Richard Pryor plays three different roles in Michael Schultz's WHICH WAY IS UP?, a raunchy but hilarious 1977 American remake of Lina Wertmüller’s 1972 Italian movie THE SEDUCTION OF MIMI. The film tells of a poor California orange picker who has trouble with labor relations and human relations at work, marital relations and sexual relations at home. Lonette McKee and Margaret Avery co-star. Adults can see it Friday or Saturday in a 35mm color print from the Universal Pictures studio archive! Print this email and present it at the box office and pay only $7 ($6 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out) Watch the original trailer here.

Cinematheque celebrates 27th anniversary with Alain Resnais' latest masterpiece YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHIN'S YET
Thursday, August 8 is the 27th anniversary of the Cinematheque’s first film showing at the Cleveland Institute of Art. We will mark this milestone with a special screening at our home away from home, the Capitol Theatre on Cleveland’s West Side. (There will also be free cookies!) The movie we will show (which is not available in the U.S. in a 35mm print) is YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHIN' YET, the highly acclaimed new film by the great Alain Resnais, director of LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD, HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR, NIGHT AND FOG, and many others. Now 91 and still turning out bold, innovative masterpieces that blend reality, artifice, and imagination, Resnais calls his new work “a film for cinephiles.” It features an all-star French cast (Michel Piccoli, Mathieu Amalric, Lambert Wilson, Resnais regulars Sabine Azéma and Pierre Arditi, both pictured above) all playing themselves—prominent actors summoned to a chateau by a recently deceased playwright to watch a recording of a new production of his famous play Eurydice (actually written by Jean Anouilh). Pretty soon these stars begin saying lines along with the on-screen actors—creating a dream space in which time melts away and pain, desire, and loss work together to forge something new. The Hollywood Reporter calls YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHIN' YET “a playful, intellectual consideration of memory, theatre, and love lost and regained.” In other words, quintessential Resnais! Don't miss this movie, which was acclaimed at last year's Cannes and New York Film Festivals, when we present its exclusive Cleveland premiere Thursday at 7 pm on the big screen at the Capitol, 1390 W. 65th St. at Detroit Ave. Special admission is $10; Cinematheque members $8; age 25 & under $7. No passes, twofers, or radio winners and no Cleveland Cinemas passes or discounts. Advance tickets available at www.clevelandcinemas.com.

THE RIVER is first of four Jean Renoir color movies showing in August
A teenage British girl living with her upper middle class family in colonial India experiences the pangs of first love in THE RIVER. Jean Renoir's exotic, lyrical, and deeply moving 1951 drama was one of the inspirations for Wes Anderson's THE DARJEELING LIMITED. Claude Renoir, nephew of the director and grandson of the painter, did the exquisite Technicolor cinematography. A young Satyajit Ray also worked on the film, which is based on a Rumer Godden novel. Don't miss this English-language classic, in a gorgeous 35mm print, on Friday or Saturday.
