Restored 70mm print. With Tati. Jacques Tati’s artistic ambitions knew no bounds—for this bank-breaking comic  masterpiece, he built Tativille, a sprawling set that was virtually an entire city. The iconic M. Hulot arrives in this ultramodern metropolis and stumbles through its many architectural absurdities. Play Time is wall-to-wall with brilliantly choreographed jokes and astonishing compositions; Tati crams so many sight gags into each frame that they’re impossible to catch on the small screen.

Free with Museum admission.
