OTTO E MEZZO
Italy | 1963 | Federico Fellini
Federico Fellini’s semi-autobiographical fantasy is one of the landmarks of world cinema! Marcello Mastroianni plays a hugely successful Italian film director who finds himself at a creative impasse just as he is about to embark on his most elaborate project. To escape fans, media vultures, and industry sycophants who swarm around him like flies, he retreats into private fantasies and nostalgic reveries. 8½ was voted the tenth best movie of all time by over 800 film critics and industry professionals polled by Sight & Sound magazine in 2012. (Directors ranked it #4 on their list.) 4K restoration! Subtitles. DCP. 138 min.
Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes or twofers.
