Film Details

James Caan, 1940-2022

THIEF

United States | 1981 | Michael Mann

THIEF film still

Next to The Godfather, James Caan’s most celebrated performance is probably in Michael Mann’s much admired theatrical debut. Caan plays a professional safecracker who desperately wants to leave his life of crime and settle down with his beloved (Tuesday Weld). But it ain’t that easy. With a score by Tangerine Dream, this is a snazzy, modernist, existential neo-noir. Willie Nelson co-stars. “Bravura movie making.” –L.A. Times. DCP. 123 min.

General admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D.holders, and those age 25 & under $8.

Face masks, though always recommended, must be worn by filmgoers only when the CDC’s community risk level for Covid in Cuyahoga County is HIGH. Visit cia.edu/covid for the current community risk level and see the “Face Coverings” section for our detailed mask requirements.

As a reminder, filmgoers can park for free in Lot 73 and in the Institute's annex lot, and should enter CIA via nearby Entrance C. Click here for a map.
