Cinematheque Announces New $5 Price For Those 25 & Under In Addition To July-August Film Schedule And More Price Changes
“This new price will allow young people to more easily afford to attend the wealth of truly interesting and exceptional films that the Cinematheque presents,” says Cinematheque Director John Ewing. “And not just in July and August of this our 25th Anniversary year, but always.”
During July and August the Cinematheque will present:
(1) A wide array of first- and second-run films and film classics that won’t be seen anyplace else in northeast Ohio. Highlights include Takashi Miike’s samurai epic 13 ASSASSINS; Jim Jarmusch’s first feature PERMANENT VACATION; the East Side premiere of BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK; two shot-in-Cleveland Hollywood rarities, THE KID FROM CLEVELAND (1949) and THOSE LIPS, THOSE EYES (1980); and this year’s winner of the Roxanne T. Mueller Audience Award for Best Film at the 35th Cleveland International Film Festival, VINCENT WANTS TO SEA.
(2) Retrospectives devoted to three important international filmmakers: Poland’s Jerzy Skolimowski; Japan’s Kaneto Shindo; and Turkey’s Yilmaz Güney.
(3) A Keir Dullea Weekend featuring four films starring the Cleveland-born actor. Dullea will appear in person on July 16 with two of them, DAVID AND LISA and 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.
(4) Two special offsite events: one at the Norwalk Theatre in Norwalk, Ohio on July 31, and one at the Palace Theatre in PlayhouseSquare on August 4.
(5) A special movie and reception on Monday, August 8 marking the 25th anniversary of the Cinematheque’s first film screening at the Cleveland Institute of Art.
