They Live by Night screening

Wednesday, July 18 @ 20:3022:05
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 They Live by Night (Nicholas Ray, U.S. 1948, 95 min., 35mm) as part of the War, Myth, Desire series.

Nicholas Ray's raw story of lovers on the run involves three jailbreakers named Bowie, Chickamaw, and T-Dub finding safe haven in their hometown. Bowie (Farley Granger) finds himself falling for Chickamaw's niece Keechie, who nurses him back to health. After a planned robbery, all Bowie wants is to clear his name from the murder rap he took back in Oklahoma at the age of sixteen. All Keechie wants is Bowie. The robbery goes wrong and the two run from both their friends and the law, hoping to spend one day in the sun as a normal couple. The great French filmmaker François Truffaut adored They Live by Night, calling it "the most Bressonian of American films" and its director "the poet of nightfall."

Animal Crackers screening (2018-Jul-19 @ 7:30 p.m.)

Thursday, July 19 @ 19:3021:00
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),

Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen Animal Crackers (Victor Heerman, U.S. 1930, 90 min., 16mm) as part of the Parties series.

Four Marx Brothers—Groucho, Chico, Harpo, and Zeppo—bring their biggest stage success to the screen, with predictably anarchic and hilarious results. The "story" begins with African explorer Spaulding's (Groucho) arrival at a posh party, leading to the theft of a valuable painting, but it's the nonstop one-liners, verbal tongue twisters, and frequently bizarre physical shtick that keep things moving.

Kevin Gordon Trio musical performance

Thursday, July 19 @ 20:3022:30
Abilene Bar and Lounge,
153 Liberty Pole Way
Rochester, New York 14604 United States
+ Google Map

Kevin Gordon's Louisiana is a strange place. It's a place where restless teens road trip to where the highway dead-ends at the Gulf of Mexico; a place where prisoners who are in for life compete in a rodeo while the town watches; where a character can get lost in the humid afternoon and where religion may not signify hope; and where rivers, never far away, carry secrets behind levees. "one of the things I like about it an am mystified by is that what passes for normal in Louisiana would not make the grade elsewhere," he says. The kicker? All of these postcards are based on true stories. It's a place that he's been exploring for twenty years now, on the eve of the release of his astonishing new album "Tilt and Shine" on Crowville Media. It is work that has earned him fans like noted author and Elvis Presley biographer Peter Guralnick; New West Records artist Buddy Miller; journalist, songwriter, and Country Music Hall of Fame staffer Peter Cooper; Todd Snider; head of the Americana Music Association Jed Hilly; and Lucinda Williams, with whom he dueted on the song "Down To The Well" (which was featured prominently on an Oxford American compilation).

Scarlet Diva screening

Friday, July 20 @ 19:3021:00
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 Scarlet Diva (Asia Argento, Italy 2000, 90 min., DCP, Italian and French w/subtitles).

It took Asia Argento's directorial debut almost two decades before landing a U.S. distribution deal, but it was worth the wait. Scarlet Diva is a poison pen letter to Hollywood from the unique cinematic perspective of this indie film provocateur and an outspoken leader in the #metoo movement. In a semi-autobiographical film, Argento plays Anna Battista, a popular 24-year-old Italian actor who engages in a hectic and self-destructive spree across Europe and America to shed her sex kitten image to become an artist. A timely look at the systematic sexism of the film industry. Created on glorious standard definition Minidv as part of the first wave of digital filmmaking, Scarlet Diva is now newly restored in HD.
