Queen Margot

When: Thu., Aug. 27 2015

"History has rarely been so gorgeously, electrically, sensuously portrayed." So reads an Entertainment Weekly review of 1994's Queen Margot. The colors in the original film really pop and we imagine they'll resonate even more in the 4K digital restoration of the movie that the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque will screen tonight at 6:45 and tomorrow night at 7:05. Set during the 16th century, the movie centers on a St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre and features a high quotient of sex and violence. The original version was so risque, its distributor cut some 16 minutes out of it. The restored version includes the scenes that were trimmed, making the film clock in at a hefty 159 minutes. Admission is $9. (Niesel)
