KISS ME DEADLY

(1955, Robert Aldrich) A nighttime encounter with a Cloris Leachman clad only in a raincoat leads Ralph Meeker’s private dick Mike Hammer and his legality-be-damned methods on a race with double-crossing Gaby Rodgers for a mysterious, too-hot-to-handle box. Adapted from the Mickey Spillane novel, with the ultimate apocalyptic ending. Approx. 105 min. 35mm.

THE KILLING

(1956, Stanley Kubrick) Ex-con Sterling Hayden puts together the usual suspects — including sniveling runt Elisha Cook Jr. (married to rotten-to-the-core Marie Windsor), a chess-playing wrestler, and trigger-happy weirdo Timothy Carey — to pull off a racetrack heist, as the inevitable ironic twist awaits. Co-written by pulp titan Jim Thompson. Approx. 83 min. DCP restoration.
