(1963, Georges Franju) Turn of the century enigmatic French “super-hero” Judex enters a masked ball wearing a giant bird head – his mission, revenge on a crooked banker – while scheming Francine Bergé doffs a nun’s habit, then a catsuit. Franju’s dreamlike adaptation of Louis Feuillade’s 1916 serial. 35mm print courtesy of La Cinémathèque Française. Approx. 98 min.

“A superbly elegant and enjoyable tribute to the adventure fantasies of Louis Feuillade… with black-and-white photography that thrills with its evocation of a lost, more innocent era, and surreal set pieces.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)

CURSE OF THE DEMON

6:15   10:10  Buy Tickets

(1957, Jacques Tourneur) American shrink Dana Andrews runs afoul of a mad magician who conjures up a demon from hell. Uncut version. 35mm. Approx. 99 min.

“One of the finest thrillers made in England during the 50s.”
Time Out (London)

“A major work in that minor genre, horror movies. Intelligent, delicate, and actually frightening (no kidding).”
– Dave Kehr, The Chicago Reader
