Modern classics returning to big screens: Merchant Ivory's HOWARDS END, Antonioni's BLOW-UP and LA NOTTE and a Chabrol retrospective.
Some of the production company Merchant Ivory's greatest triumphs are adaptations of E.M. Forster novels. There are three of them: A Room with a View (1985), Maurice (1987) and Howards End (1992), which is one of their undisputed masterpieces. Based on Forster’s 1910 novel, Howards End is a saga of class relations and changing times in Edwardian England. Margaret Schlegel (Emma Thompson, who won the Best Actress Oscar for this performance) and her sister Helen (Helena Bonham Carter) become involved with two couples: a wealthy, conservative industrialist (Anthony Hopkins) and his wife (Vanessa Redgrave), and a working-class man (Samuel West) a [...]
Stephen Frears' and Meryl Streep's FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS screenings with behind-the-scenes footage and pre-recorded cast Q&A Thursday night and Sunday afternoon.
Set in 1940s New York, Stephen Frears' Florence Foster Jenkins is the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite (Meryl Streep) who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer.

But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall, St. Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge. All of our 7:10 PM screenings on Thursday, August 11 and 1:30 PM screenin [...]
