Twitch, Pop, Bloom: Science in Action

This video exhibition presents films produced for scientific education and entertainment between 1904 and 1936, an era when cinema was still a novel tool for manipulating time and scale to show what was imperceptible to the naked eye.

Living with The Walking Dead

This major new exhibition addresses the origins, production, fandom, and impact of The Walking Dead, one of the most watched shows in the history of cable television. Presented with support from AMC Networks.


Sleeping Beauty

You have two more chances to see this gorgeous 70mm print of Walt Disney’s classic 1959 fairy tale, at the time the most expensive animated film ever made. Screening September 3 and 5!


White Zombie

Directly inspired by William Seabrook’s book The Magic Island, this is considered the first feature-length zombie film and would serve as a major influence to those that followed.



This groundbreaking feature follows rebel computer programmer Kevin Flynn as he is scanned and transported into an autocratic universe of zipping vectors and shiny surfaces, somewhere inside the mainframe of an arcade game.


I Walked With a Zombie

Easily the most sophisticated and memorable of the zombie films of the subgenre’s premier era, Tourneur and low-budget producer extraordinaire Val Lewton’s remarkable collaboration is a dreamlike horror fable that loosely reimagines Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre.


Top Gun – Canceled

Please note: This screening has been canceled due to the distributor's decision to withdraw the film from circulation temporarily.


Zombie aka Zombi 2

Italian horror maestro Lucio Fulci returns to the racialized origins of the zombie narrative with what was originally conceived as a sequel to George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead.


Streets of Fire

In Walter Hill’s neo-noir cum outlaw-biker rock opera, fifties nostalgia fuels a futuristic Americana fantasy that’s all neon, chrome, fire, and steam. Screening in 70mm, August 27–Sep. 4.
