Cinematheque presents Universal Pictures centenary salute

[Press release from the Cleveland Cinematheque.]
 

In May and June the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque saluted Paramount Pictures on the occasion of its 100th anniversary. (The series concludes with three more films this month: TUCKER, WHAT’S EATING GILBERT GRAPE?, and POOTIE TANG.) In July and August the Cinematheque will do the same with Universal Pictures, also founded in 1912 (as the Universal Film Manufacturing Company) and the oldest film studio in the U.S.  Ten films from each of the studio’s first ten decades will be shown between July 5 and September 2 in the series “A World of Movies: Universal Pictures at 100.” The emphasis will be on exceptional films that are little known or forgotten, rather than on “Universal’s greatest hits.” Most of the movies will be shown from archival 35mm prints.
 
Unless noted, admission to each film is $9; Cinematheque members $7; ages 25 & under (with proof of age) $5. All films will show in the Russell B. Aitken Auditorium of the Cleveland Institute of Art, 11141 East Boulevard in University Circle, telephone (216) 421-7450, www.cia.edu/cinematheque. There is free parking for filmgoers in the adjacent CIA lot.
