FILMWORKER (Double Bill: Saturday, July 14, 6:30 pm) (Full Run: Friday, July 13-Thursday, July 19)
Stanley Kubrick, the most meticulous genius in film history, crafted ambitious masterpieces that pushed the boundaries of the medium—but he also pushed those around him in order to achieve his vision. Meet Leon Vitali, who played Lord Bullingdon in Barry Lyndon and then stepped out of the limelight to become Kubrick’s right-hand man. An unsung hero, Vitali worked tirelessly from the shadows to help make and maintain Kubrick's extraordinary legacy of work. Featuring previously-unseen photos, videos and letters, Filmworker is a portrait of a legend through the unique perspective of one of the people who knew him best.
THE SHINING (Double Bill: Saturday, July 14, 8:45 pm)
From the great master filmmaker Stanley Kubrick comes one of the most infamous horror movies of all time. Adapted loosely from the novel by Stephen King, Jack Nicholson stars as Jack Torrance, who takes a job taking care of the isolated Overlook Hotel while it suspends operations over the winter. A perfect chance for him to focus on writing his next book and spend quality time with his wife (played by a brilliant Shelley Duvall) and son... Except that all work and no play make Jack a dull boy. Enigmatic and chilling, The Shining is a masterpiece that never loses its power.
