[Press release from the Cleveland Cinematheque.]
The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque announces its July-August films showing at the Cleveland Institute of Art, 11141 East Boulevard in University Circle, telephone (216) 421-7450, www.cia.edu/cinematheque. One special film on July 22 will show at the Cedar Lee Theatre in Cleveland Heights, and three movies (on July 24 and August 9) will play at the Capitol Theatre on W. 65th Street.
The films for the next two months fall into one of three series:
“A World of Movies: Universal Pictures at 100” (July 5 – September 2) is a ten-film tribute to Universal Pictures, which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. Ten movies—one from each of the studio’s first ten decades—will be screened, most from archival 35mm film prints.
“Premiere Showcase” (July 5 – September 2) features the first Cleveland showing of 21 acclaimed new international films. Highlights include Bobcat Goldthwait’s GOD BLESS AMERICA, Morgan Spurlock’s COMIC-CON EPISODE IV: A FAN’S HOPE, Hirokazu Kore-eda’s I WISH, Mia Hansen-Løve’s GOODBYE FIRST LOVE, and at the Capitol, Bud Clayman’s OC87: THE OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE, MAJOR DEPRESSION, BIPOLAR, ASPERGER’S MOVIE.
“A Second Look” (July 7 – September 2) brings back to Cleveland an eclectic selection of 13 classic or second-run films, including a number of movies that premiered earlier this year at the Cleveland International Film Festival, the Capitol Theatre, the Cleveland Museum of Art, or the Cinematheque. Veteran Hollywood director Larry Peerce makes a special in-person appearance with two of his films on August 4, and the digitally restored 1945 French classic CHILDREN OF PARADISE shows in July at both the Cedar Lee and the Capitol under the auspices of the Cinematheque.
Complete details follow. Unless noted, admission to each film is $9, Cinematheque members $7, ages 25 & under $5 (with proof of age), and a second film on the same day costs an additional $5 per film. There is free parking for filmgoers in the adjacent Cleveland Institute of Art lot, located off of East Boulevard.
