REPEAT PERFORMANCE

(1947, Eagle-Lion [UCLA/FNF], 91 min.)
Premiere 35mm FNF Restoration!
Consider it the noir version of It's a Wonderful Life. Broadway actress Sheila Page (Joan Leslie) rings in the New Year by shooting her husband to death. She blurts out a confession to her friend, the poet William Williams (Richard Basehart), but as she leads him to the crime scene . . . the preceding year begins again! Will Sheila be able to correct what went so dreadfully wrong, or will Fate demand a . . . Repeat Performance? Back-stabbing backstage melodrama is crossed with The Twilight Zone. We are proud to resurrect this rare fantasy-noir hybrid in a brand new 35mm restoration, funded in part by the Film Noir Foundation.

2:50, 7:00
SUNSET BOULEVARD

(1950, Paramount, 110 min.)
North American Premiere of 4K Digital Restoration!
Not only the ultimate Hollywood noir, Sunset Boulevard is also one of the greatest films ever made, in Hollywood or anywhere else. Beleaguered screenwriter Joe Gillis (William Holden) is thrown by fate into the clutches of aging silent screen star Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) and exploits, for personal gain, her delusional quest for a big-screen comeback. Joe, you should have stuck with the baseball picture. Billy Wilder exerts a master's control over every aspect of the most memorable movie ever made about the scary, mind-altering power of . . . the movies.
