In January and February 2011, the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque will screen a series of seven classic Audrey Hepburn films.
Seven classic films starring Audrey Hepburn will be shown in January and February at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. “Audrey Hepburn: Sophisticated Lady” runs January 15 to February 27, 2011.
The series includes Roman Holiday, Sabrina, Funny Face, Charade, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Two for the Road, and Wait until Dark. One movie will be shown every Saturday, and six of the films will receive a second screening on the following Sunday. All seven movies will be projected from beautiful film prints—no video, DVD, or Blu-ray.
The elegant Hepburn was America’s foremost sound-film sweetheart and remains an enduring screen icon. Born in Belgium in 1929, this daughter of a British banker and a Dutch baroness became a ballet dancer and a fashion model before turning to acting. Her 1951 Broadway debut in the play Gigi (not the musical of the same name) sent Hollywood calling, and she won the Oscar for Best Actress for her first starring film role in Roman Holiday. Hepburn was also an ardent humanitarian, working tirelessly for UNICEF before her death in 1993 at the age of 63.
Roman Holiday opens the Cinematheque series on January 15 and 16. On January 15, Marcie Goodman, Executive Director of the Cleveland International Film Festival and a longtime Hepburn fan, will introduce the movie. The complete series schedule is below.
