Lust for Life screening (2019-May-20 @ 1:30 p.m.)

Monday, May 20 @ 13:3015:32
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen Lust for Life (Vincente Minnelli, U.S. 1956, 122 min., 35mm) as part of the Eastman Entertains series.

Vincente Minnelli's bold, colorful biography of Vincent Van Gogh is anchored by the vibrant performances of Kirk Douglas as Vincent and James Donald as his brother, Theo. Van Gogh, following an unsuccessful preaching career, finds himself drawn to the people of the town and the work that they do, which leads him to find drawing and, ultimately, painting. He is influenced by his relationships with painters Anton Mauve (Noel Purcell) and Paul Gaugin (Anthony Quinn), but the beautiful images he paints belie a struggle with depression. Douglas was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance and Quinn won his second Oscar in five years for his.

Hornets' Nest: The Kavanaugh Files theatrical performance

Monday, May 20 @ 19:0021:00
Geva Theatre Center,
75 Woodbury Blvd.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

Geva Theatre Center will host a Hornets' Nest reading of The Kavanaugh Files by Joe Salvatore, and Keith R. Huff.

In September 2018, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward with allegations that she had been sexually assaulted by then Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh when they were both teenagers. The allegations prompted a second set of hearings conducted by the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 27, 2018. Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh both offered sworn testimony and faced questioning by members of the committee and a designated proxy, Rachel Mitchell. Following these hearings, the committee voted 11-10 to send the nomination to the Senate floor. On October 6, 2018, the Senate voted 50-48 to confirm Kavanaugh to become an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

The Kavanaugh Files is a verbatim performance of key moments from the hearings. Actors perform the original words, gestures, and disfluencies of the real-life people, and in most cases, the genders have been inverted—women perform the roles that men had in the real hearings, and men perform the women. How is our perception of a person's behavior influenced by their gender, and how does that impact the ways in which we respond to national events?

Rochester, New York 14607 United States

The Dryden will screen Flower Drum Song (Henry Koster, U.S. 1961, 133 min., 35mm) as part of the Eastman Entertains series.

Nancy Kwan, fresh from her success in The World of Suzie Wong, steps into this Rodgers and Hammerstein musical about arranged marriages in San Francisco. Mei Li (Miyoshi Umeki) is a picture bride from China, who has been chosen to marry Sammy Fong (Jack Soo), a nightclub owner who only has eyes for singer Linda Low (Kwan). Sammy instead tries to unload Mei Li on the Wang family, who have been seeking a bride for their eldest son, Wang Ta (James Shigeta), whom Linda is pursuing because of the family's money. The first major Hollywood film to feature a primarily Asian cast in a contemporary Asian-American story, it would be the last for another three decades, until The Joy Luck Club in 1993.

Two for the Road screening

Wednesday, May 22 @ 19:3021:21
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen Two for the Road (Stanley Donen, U.K. 1967, 111 min., 35mm) as part of the Albert Finney series.

Albert Finney and a luminous Audrey Hepburn (in what some fans consider her finest performance) are bickering married couple Mark and Joanna, visiting the North of France for the celebration of one of Mark's clients. As they make the trip, they reflect on their relationship—which we see in flashback—from their first meeting to their early marriage and the difficulties of maintaining a mature relationship. The superb direction from Stanley Donen and the sterling script by Frederic Raphael (who cowrote Eyes Wide Shut) artfully evokes both the thrill of young romance, as well as the hardships and rewards of married life.
