David Lean's desert epic LAWRENCE OF ARABIA shows in new 4K digital restoration!
Recently named the #1 film you must see on the big screen, David Lean’s celebrated epic LAWRENCE OF ARABIA will never look and sound any better than it will in the new 4K digital restoration that we will show Saturday at 7:15 pm in our grand, new, state-of-the-art theater! Peter O’Toole stars as T.E. Lawrence, a British adventurer who united Arab tribes against the Turks during WWI. Stunning desert landscapes and an all-star supporting cast (Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn, the recently deceased Omar Sharif, et al.) helped earn this 1962 film seven Oscars, including Best Picture, Director, and Cinematography. Special admission is $10; members, CIA I.D. holders, those age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners will be honored or accepted.

1985 kid adventure classic THE GOONIES returns to the big screen -- in 35mm!
In Richard Donner's 1985 adventure comedy THE GOONIES has become a major cult film (and turns 30 this year), seven kids living in an Oregon coastal town find an old pirate map and search for buried treasure. The cast includes Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Corey Feldman, and Martha Plimpton. See it in 35mm on Friday night or Sunday afternoon. Here's the original trailer.

Program of 3-D RARITIES -- in 3D! -- shows next Tuesday at the Capitol Theatre
The first documented public exhibition of a 3-D motion picture took place on June 10, 1915, at New York’s Astor Theatre. We commemorate this centennial with 3-D RARITIES, a special program of treasures (assembled by the 3-D Film Archive) dating back to the dawn of stereoscopic cinematography. This program -- which will present next Tuesday, October 20, on the big screen at the Capitol Theatre, 1390 W. 65th St. -- includes: C. Kelley’s Plasticon Pictures: Thru’ the Trees, Washington, DC (1922), the earliest extant 3-D demonstration film with incredible footage of Washington and NYC; New Dimensions (aka Motor Rhythm), the first domestic full color 3-D film, originally shown at the New York World’s Fair in 1940; Thrills for You, a fascinating 1940 promotional film for the Pennsylvania Railroad; Boo Moon (pictured above), a 1954 stereoscopic color cartoon; Doom Town, a controversial anti-atomic testing film which was mysteriously pulled from theatrical release after a few playdates in July 1953; I’ll Sell My Shirt, a burlesque comedy unseen in 3-D for over 60 years; the trailer for The Maze, with fantastic 3-D production design by the legendary William Cameron Menzies; and much more! Special admission is $10; members, CIA I.D. holders, those age 25 & under $8. (Prices include 3-D glasses.) No passes, twofers, or radio winners and no Cleveland Cinemas passes or discount offers will be honored or accepted.

Master Iranian filmmaker jafar Panahi drives cab around Tehran in bold, subversive TAXI
For TAXI, his third shot-on-the-sly feature since being officially banned from filmmaking for 20 years, master Iranian director Jafar Panahi drives a cab around Tehran, picking up an assortment of passengers (a DVD bootlegger, an injured man, a young girl, et al.) who talk and argue about life in their beleaguered nation. Is what we’re watching real, or is it scripted and acted? The cagey Panahi won’t tell, but small cameras, confinement, and cinema itself are recurrent elements in his recent films. Variety calls the highly acclaimed Taxi “a film of quiet but profound outrage, laughing on the surface, but howling in anger just beneath.” Catch its exclusive Cleveland premiere on Friday or Sunday. Print this email and present it at the box office and see Taxi for only $7 ($6 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out)

Taviani brothers series continues with powerful 1977 drama PADRE PADRONE
Winner of the Palme d’Or (top prize) at the Cannes Film Festival, Paolo and Vittorio Taviani's international breakthrough film PADRE PADRONE is a potent portrait of an illiterate Sardinian shepherd who manages to escape an impoverished upbringing, brutal father, and patriarchal society via education. See a new digital restoration of this 1977 Italian classic on Saturday at 5:00 pm. Alberto Zambenedetti, Visiting Assistant Professor in Oberlin College's Cinema Studies Program, will introduce the movie.

EROICA (HEROISM) is the ironic title of Andrzej Munk's 1957 WWII comedy
Rejecting the passion and romanticism that was de rigueur for big-screen depictions of WWII heroism, Polish Jewish filmmaker Andrzej Munk (1921-61) tells two wartime stories full of irony, satire, and bitter comedy in his 1957 opus EROICA (HEROISM). The first tale focuses on a Polish black marketeer who accidentally becomes a Resistance hero. The second concerns a group of Polish POW’s in a German camp who don’t really want to escape. See this Polish classic in a new digital restoration on Thursday at 6:45pm.

NIGHT TRAIN is Polish "Hitchcock" movie
In Jerzy Kawalerowicz's “Hitchcock” film NIGHT TRAIN, a man and a woman who each seem to be running away from something end up sharing the same sleeping compartment on an overnight train. Zbigniew Cybulski stars in this 1959 Polish classic that will play in a new digital restoration on Thursday at 8:30pm. Joanne Trzeciak-Huss of Kent State University's Department of Modern and Classical Language Studies will introduce the movie.
