New CIA building taking shape; set for December completion
United States | 1953 | Ray Ashley, Morris Engel, Ruth Orkin
New 35mm Restoration!
A seven-year-old Brooklyn boy is tricked into believing that he has killed his older brother. So he runs away to Coney Island and spends a day among the rides, games, and attractions there. This landmark American independent film, shot with non-professional actors in real locations, inspired countless aspiring filmmakers. "Five stars (highest rating)…There's influential, and then there's this 1953 microbudgeted beauty that's made its way into the DNA of everything from cinema vérité to the French New Wave." –Time Out New York. Cleveland revival premiere.
