The Tales of Hoffmann

When: Fri., Aug. 28 2015

The British filmmaking team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (in a partnership known as the Archers) was responsible for several great films. They made movies such as Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes and A Matter of Life and Death. They're also the ones behind The Tales of Hoffmann, an elaborate, over-the-top adaptation of Jacques Offenbach's opera. Director George Romero has said it's his favorite film of all time. Earlier this year, Martin Scorcese's the Film Foundation, the British Film Institute and Studiocanal teamed up to release a 4K restoration of the movie. The new version includes a never-before-seen credits sequence. It screens tonight at 9:15 and tomorrow night at 7:05 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
