THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS & PLAY MISTY FOR ME

THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS

(1974, Steven Spielberg) Goldie Hawn and William Atherton’s kidnapping of their infant son sucks in every patrol car that’ll fit on the wide screen. Spielberg’s first theatrical feature is “one of the most phenomenal debut films in the history of movies” (Pauline Kael). Approx. 109 min. 35mm.
1:00, 5:10, 9:20

 

"Spielberg's first feature for the big screen touches on many aspects of American life and cinema: the role of the media, the matriarchal society, consumer possession, the decline of the American hero, and the increasing depersonalisation of everything. A beautifully put together, assured film."
– Geoff Andrew, TIme Out (London)

"A brilliantly calculated audience pleaser."
– Dave Kehr

THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS & PLAY MISTY FOR ME

PLAY MISTY FOR ME

(1971, Clint Eastwood) Late night DJ Clint Eastwood meets up with Jessica Walter, the sultry voice always requesting “Misty” — but then she won’t go away. Eastwood’s directorial debut, with cameo by mentor Don Siegel.  Approx. 102 min. 35mm.
3:05, 7:20

"Eastwood's first film as director, and first exploratory probe for the flaws in his macho image as outlined in Siegel's The Beguiled. A highly enjoyable thriller...with a splendid all-stops-out finale."
– Tom Milne, TIme Out (London)
