7:00pm THE FiFTH ELEMENT (1997) — Restored 4K DCP
This immensely opulent, mind bending science fiction extravaganza has polarized audiences for 20 years. Luc Besson’s “space opera” not only showcases memorable performances by Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman, Chris Tucker and Milla Jovovich but exhibits stunning costumes by Jean Paul Gaultier and sets designed by “Moebius” and Mézières (who worked with Luc Besson on his upcoming Valérian.) Come get hypnotized by celebrating the 20th ANNiVERSARY of Luc Besson's new 4K DCP restoration along with a limited edition poster created by Spoke Art. Rated PG-13. 126 minutes.
9:30pm RUN LOLA RUN (1998) — 35mm Print
Come celebrate this pulse-pounding, existential gem which is just about to celebrate its 20th Anniversary. German auteur Tom Tykwer’s third feature turned out to be one of the most defining films of the 1990s. Led by the performance of a lifetime by Franka Potente, this contemporary classic not only twists-and-turns through such cinematic masterpieces as Vertigo (1958) and Rashomon (1950), it has paved a contemplative road that very few films since have rarely achieved. Original 35mm Print as well as a limited edition poster created by Spoke Art. Rated R. 80 minutes.
