National Art House Theater Day!
TITICUT FOLLIES – 50th Anniversary Restoration Re-Release!
Frederick Wiseman (U.S. 1967) 84 min. DCP.
We are honored to be participating in the second annual Art House Theater Day, a nationwide celebration of the legacy of independent theaters as advocates for cinematic arts. In an age where media has become more digital than tangible, more solitary than social, art house theaters remain the physical spaces where film lovers congregate and connect with intrepid, creative filmmaking. They are the beating heart for new and exciting cinema that is shaping the future of the medium.
Visit the State Prison for the Criminally Insane at Bridgewater, Massachusetts with renowned filmmaker Frederick Wiseman in this highly-controversial yet essential documentary, digitally remastered for its 50th Anniversary. The screening will be accompanied by a special taped conversation with Wiseman and filmmaker Wes Anderson, featuring never-before-seen news trial footage of Wiseman testifying before the Massachusetts State Legislative committee investigating who was responsible for granting permission to make the film. All made available just for Art House Theater Day!
