THE UNTOUCHABLES and SUGARLAND EXPRESS
Wednesday, July 29
(1987, Brian De Palma) Kevin Costner’s Eliot Ness goes all out to bring down Robert De Niro’s Al Capone, assembling an incorruptible team, with Sean Connery (Oscar, Best Supporting Actor) as the Irish cop who teaches him the facts of Chicago life and the elaborate shootout on train station steps (an homage to Eisenstein’s Potemkin) an action highlight. Ennio Morricone’s score garnered one of his few Oscar nominations. Approx. 119 min. DCP.
12:45, 5:15, 9:40
(1974, Steven Spielberg) In desperate trek to get their kids, Goldie Hawn and William Atherton’s kidnapping of a highway patrolman in his own cruiser expands to a low-speed hundred-car chase. Spielberg’s first theatrical feature is “one of the most phenominal debut films in the history of movies” (Pauline Kael), and filmed on some of the actual locations. Approx. 110 min. DCP.
