From Rin Tin Tin to Uggie-->
--> After a century of service, 35mm film prints are fading slowly into the sunset as theaters transition to digital technology. The vibrant, clear and larger 70mm film prints deserve a big bang send-off (though we hope that reports of its demise are premature).-->
Join us for six 70mm classics, each from a different genre: IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD, SLEEPING BEAUTY, GRAND PRIX, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY and a new print of SPARTACUS, along with rarely screened 70mm short subjects.
Screenings are on Monday nights starting July 9. Series Passes are SOLD OUT; individual tickets are available now.
