HIGH AND LOW film still

In Akira Kurosawa’s riveting thriller, a shoe tycoon (Toshiro Mifune) faces a moral dilemma when his chauffeur’s son is mistaken for his own child and is kidnapped and held for ruinous ransom. Based on an Ed McBain novel, this is one of the best crime melodramas ever made—a thrilling detective story that plumbs Dostoevskian depths. Tatsuya Nakadai and Takashi Shimura co-star. Scope print! Subtitles. 143 min.

Special event pricing $12; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $9. No passes, twofers, or radio winners
