Paris Theater : Orson Wells Weekend More!

Credit Marion Curtis

The coming week, the Paris continues to celebrate film – a mix of new and old, personal appearances, archival 35mm prints, New York premieres, and more!

We will present an Orson Welles weekend, including screenings of The Other Side of the Wind, Welles’s audacious final film (40 years in the making, and completed after his death); a 35mm screening of his 1942 masterpiece The Magnificent Ambersons, introduced by film critic Molly Haskell; and a rare screening, also in 35mm, of his mind-bending F For Fake, introduced by filmmaker Sierra Pettengill.

Starting next Monday, we present the New York City premiere theatrical engagement of Malcolm & Marie, a provocative and beautifully made drama about a couple’s long, rocky night following a film premiere, with unforgettable performances by Zendaya and John David Washington. You can also enjoy one of the finest New York independent films of recent years, Tamara Jenkins’ funny and incisive Private Life, starring Kathryn Hahn and Paul Giamatti.

Finally, you can continue to catch showings of Award winning films like My Octopus TeacherMa Rainey’s Black BottomMank, and shorts If Anything Happens I Love You and Two Distant Strangers.

In short, plenty of great cinema, with free popcorn and beverages at all shows. Tickets available at the box office, or on Fandango.
