Independent of City Cinema’s regular programming, CACC will resume an initiative that was put on pause two years ago: Showing, in addition to the cinema regular schedule, a wide variety of classics! Starting this October, just in time for Halloween, the Cinema will screen horror classics like David Lynch’s Eraserhead, Cronenberg’s The Fly, Tony Scott’s stylized horror film The Hunger starring David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon, Romero’s Night of the Living Dead as well as a matinee of the ‘91 version of The Addams Family. There will also be Herzog’s Nosferatu with Klaus Kinski and Isabelle Adjani, and John Carpenter’s Halloween on October 31. Also included will be modern classics like the original Japanese version of The Ring and Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook that William Friendkin, the director of The Exorcist, named as something as important as Psycho and Alien.
City Cinema also wants to mark the passing of one of the most beloved figures of European cinema. Jean-Paul Belmondo left us on September 6 and to pay tribute to him the cinema will present Pierrot Le Fou, the last of the three films he shot with Jean-Luc Godard and Victorio De Sica’s Two Women, in which he played a second role with Sophia Loren who became with that role the first Oscar winner for a non-English language performance.
