The Overcoat

Russia | 1926 | Grigori Kozintsev, Leonid Trauberg

USSR, 1926, Grigori Kozintsev, Leonid Trauberg Two years after their sold-out Metropolis show at the Capitol Theatre (a Cinematheque presentation), the Alloy Orchestra returns to the Cinematheque! This time the Boston band that Roger Ebert calls “the best in the world at accompanying silent films” will lend their distinctive mix of clarinet, accordion, electronics, and junk metal percussion to two movies they have never before performed in Cleveland, both Soviet silents in rare 35mm...

Man with a Movie Camera

Russia | 1929 | Dziga Vertov

For their second show tonight (see The Orchestra), Boston’s Alloy Orchestra will present the first Cleveland performance of what is often cited as their best score. It’s for Man with a Movie Camera, a Constructivist Soviet silent that, in this year’s Sight & Sound poll, was voted the eighth best movie of all time! Vertov’s dizzying city symphony is a whirling, swooping work that breathlessly employs every camera and editing trick known at the...

Last Ride

Australia | 2009 | Glendyn Ivin

Hugo Weaving plays a violent criminal who flees across the bleak Australian outback with his oft-neglected 10-year-old son in this lyrically photographed drama that The Village Voice calls “an Aussie variation on Badlands teeming with desolation, beauty, fear, and the discord between youthful fantasies and grim realities.” “A spare and wrenching road movie delving into the complexities of a fraught father-son relationship.” –The Hollywood Reporter. Cleveland theatrical premiere.

Jules and Jim

France | 1962 | François Truffaut

One of the most beloved, romantic, and influential French New Wave classics is now 50 years old! Truffaut’s intoxicating, lyrical love story, set in pre- and post-WWI Europe, tells of two artist friends—a German (Oskar Werner) and a Frenchman (Henri Serre)—who love the same enigmatic, free-spirited young woman (Jeanne Moreau). 35mm color & scope print! Subtitles.

Grand Ilusion

France | 1937 | Jean Renoir

Orson Welles once said, “If I had only one film in the world to save, it would be Grand Illusion.“ Jean Gabin, Erich von Stroheim, and Pierre Fresnay star in Jean Renoir’s great anti-war movie—a humanistic masterpiece set in and around a German POW camp during WWI. This exciting and moving film astutely demonstrates that it is social class—not nationality or language—that separates and divides people. Unmissable! New 35mm print! Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles.

9:40 pm

Castle in the Sky

1986 | Hayao Miyazaki

A young girl battles sky pirates and government agents for possession of a magical levitation stone that unlocks the secrets of Laputa, a mysterious floating island in the sky. This funny, thrilling, dazzling animated aerial adventure “may be Miyazaki’s most purely enjoyable movie” (Film Comment). Subtitles.

Juan of the Dead

Spain | 2011 | Alejandro Bgrugués

Cuba’s first zombie movie is a clever, ballsy black comedy with a sharp satirical bite. (Moviegoers ate it up in July so we’re bringing it back.) When creatures in tattered clothes looking dazed, hungry, and sick start stumbling around Havana, local layabout Juan thinks nothing of it—just another day of depravation in Castro’s Cuba. But when their numbers grow, and the ineffectual government dismisses them as U.S.-sponsored “dissidents,” Juan sees a business opportunity: he...

Kyle MacLachlan, Jack Nance, Patrick Stewart, Sting, Sean Young, Max von Sydow, and many others star in this lavish film version of Frank Herbert’s mammoth sci-fi novel, about the struggle to control a desert planet where an essential spice is mined and giant man-eating sandworms lurk. “Gets under your skin…Unforgettable images and an extraordinary...

It’s a twisted comedy from Lars von Trier’s always edgy Zentropa Productions—about a man who “kidnaps” his pregnant girlfriend’s 12-year-old nephew and then, to prove what a good parent he would be, takes him on a canoe trip—with his sex-crazed buddy. The pastoral outing soon turns into a weekend of debauchery and disaster! “Plays...

But in jail he’s a different person—literally—a mechanic (Balthazar Getty) with connections to a gangster (Robert Loggia) whose mistress (Arquette again) is the spitting image of the murdered wife!
