Film Details

The Cinematheque at the Capitol Theatre


France, Italy, Spain | 1970 | Luis Bu˝uel


Catherine Deneuve, Fernando Rey, and Franco (Django) Nero star in this late Buñuel classic that has been unavailable in a good color print for at least three decades! But tonight we will show a glorious new digital restoration on the Capitol Theatre’s big screen. Set in Toledo (Spain) during the early 1930s, Tristana is a perverse black comedy about desire, death, and deformity in which a progressive-thinking old nobleman (Rey) lusts after his virginal, orphaned young ward (Deneuve), whom he is able to seduce but not possess. Buñuel, a lifelong surrealist and anarchist, is the director of Un Chien Andalou, Belle de Jour, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, et al.

Shown at the Capitol Theatre, 1390 W. 65th St. at Detroit Ave. No passes, twofers, or radio winners and no Cleveland Cinemas passes or discounts. $9 tickets available in advance at Special thanks to Jon Forman and Dave Huffman.
