Sergio Leone Classics

 

An Aero Theatre Exclusive!

 

Sergio Leone (1929 - 1989) was one of the great larger-than-life personalities of not just Italian, but world cinema. Along with its two predecessors, FISTFUL OF DOLLARS and FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, Leone's majestically gritty masterpiece and conclusion of the Man-With-No-Name trilogy, THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY (1966) not only revolutionized the western genre, forever cementing his trademark visual style of epic vistas and meticulous production design punctuated by claustrophobically emotional close-ups, but branded Ennio Morricone as one of the most original, eclectically fluid soundtrack composers of his generation. Leone followed up his successful Eastwood films with his operatic masterwork ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST (1968). We are happy to once again present these two phenomenal motion pictures as they were meant to be seen - on the big screen!

 

 

Friday, September 30 – 7:30 PM

THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY (IL BUONO, IL BRUTTO, IL CATTIVO), 1966, Sony (MGM/UA), 161 min. From the opening whistle and whip crack theme, to the final images of a vast cemetery stretching almost to infinity, THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY is surely one of the bloodiest, funniest and most wickedly entertaining portraits of human corruption ever made. Leone's surreal masterpiece of the American West during the last days of the Civil War follows a trio of equally violent and unrepentant gunslingers (Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee van Cleef) who engage in a jaw-dropping series of double-and triple-crosses to get their hands on a fortune in stolen Confederate gold.

Saturday, October 1 – 5:00 PM

ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST (C'ERA UNA VOLTA IL WEST), 1968, Paramount, 165 min. Leone's vast, mournful, brilliantly poetic epic of the rape and conquest of the American West stars Charles Bronson as a soft-spoken, harmonica-blowing gunslinger bent on revenge against corporate railroad assassin Henry Fonda, in one of the most chilling portraits of consummate evil ever put on screen. Co-starring the phenomenal Claudia Cardinale as a mail-order bride who proves more than a match for the men who would claim her, and Jason Robards as a wry, wiley bandido with an agenda of his own. Co-written by (are you ready for this?) Dario Argento and Bernardo Bertolucci - ! Note: This is a rare print of the full-length, director's cut version of the film.
