THE INVISIBLE MAN and ISLAND OF LOST SOULS

THE INVISIBLE MAN

NEW RESTORATION!

(James Whale) “You fool! Together we could have ruled the world!” Faithful adaptation of the H.G. Wells classic and 43-year-old stage star Claude Rains’ film debut — seen only in the final moments. Still dazzling special effects allow him to perform an uncensored striptease. Approx. 71 min. DCP.
1:00, 4:10, 9:20

 

“In his first cinema role, Claude Rains gives an alarming performance, almost as frightening when he is present as when he is not.”
– Time magazine

“Whale's most elegantly inventive movie... a film that always feels both more sinister and more prankish than you remember it as: it’s a startling piece of studio-made surrealism.”
– Terrence Rafferty, The New York Times (November 29, 2009)

“Engrossing adaptation played for suspense, pathos and tongue-in-cheek humour.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)

THE INVISIBLE MAN and ISLAND OF LOST SOULS

ISLAND OF LOST SOULS

(Erle C. Kenton) “Are we not men?” protests Bela Lugosi, but that’s not how those islanders started out, and when his “experiments” don’t quite take, Charles Laughton’s quite mad scientist brings out the whip. Adapted from Wells’ The Island of Dr. Moreau. Extra Added Attraction!  Mickey Mouse in MAD DOCTOR -- in archival 35mm print from the Disney archive!  Approx. 71 min. 35mm.
2:35, 5:40, 10:45

“A remarkably powerful film [with a] subversive spirit.”
– Tom Milne, Time Out (London)

“A grand, hokey chiller, dripping with sex and sadism and photographed in dense, Sternbergian shadows by the great cinematographer Karl Struss.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
