Each of the featured films will be shown as a pristine archival print, rarely experienced with classic films on the big screen. The schedule is as follows:
6/4-6/10 - Wait Until Dark (1967)

The festival kicks off with Wait Until Dark, starring Audrey Hepburn in the thriller that earned her an Oscar® nomination, followed by A Clockwork Orange, the controversial film that shocked many viewers with its violent depiction of a near-future Britain when it was released in 1971. An American in Paris features Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron and the music of George Gershwin, while Lolita takes a darker turn with James Mason starring as a man obsessed with his young stepdaughter.
Stanley Kubrick's immensely influential masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey is a visual feast spanning from the dawn of man to the title year. The festival continues with Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, the camp classic starring the incomparable Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, followed by The Shining, starring Jack Nicholson as an off-season caretaker of a resort who, after taking the job, quickly begins to lose his mind. Casablanca, the 1942 Best Picture Oscar®-winner and The American Film Institute's pick for "greatest love story of all time," stars Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
