New Digital Restoration!


United States | 1956 | George Stevens


James Dean (in his last screen appearance before his untimely death), Elizabeth Taylor, and Rock Hudson star in this Texas-sized epic set in the Lone Star State. It’s a sprawling, two-generation saga about a wealthy cattle baron and his beautiful bride, and a less refined neighbor and rival who rises from ranch hand to oil tycoon. George Stevens’ follow-up to Shane won him the Oscar for Best Director. With Carroll Baker, Dennis Hopper, Sal Mineo, and Mercedes McCambridge; from Edna Ferber’s novel. Giant is co-presented by MOCA Cleveland, where several paintings of James Dean, including one inspired by this film, can be seen in the exhibition “Keith Mayerson: My American Dream” through 9/17. DCP. 201 min.

Special admission $11; Cinematheque & MOCA members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
