Spotlight on Composers


This Series is an Egyptian Theatre Exclusive!


Thursday, February 3 – 7:30 PM

Double Feature: CONTEMPT (LE MEPRIS), 1963, Rialto Pictures, 103 min. The brilliantly vivid color palette is almost as ravishing as Brigitte Bardot in this masterpiece by Jean-Luc Godard. Bardot plays Camille, a woman whose marriage to her screenwriter husband comes to a swift, inevitable end over the course of a day on the Isle of Capri. With a score of aching beauty by Georges Delerue. In French with English subtitles. [35mm] Trailer

SHOOT THE PIANO PLAYER (TIREZ SUR LE PIANISTE), 1960, Janus Films, 92 min. François Truffaut’s second film, is both a stylistic tour de force filled with innovative visual ideas and a longing, bittersweet character study of uncommon depth and resonance. Charles Aznavour is a washed-up concert pianist unable to return to his former glory due to connections with gangsters and other nefarious types. Score by Georges Delerue. In French with English subtitles. [35mm] Trailer  | Buy Tickets
