WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S ROMEO AND JULIET

Romeo & Juliet

February 3-9

1996, dir. Baz Lurhmann. Teen Suicide, murder, drugs, rioting and family feuds. Luhrmann, one of today's most innovative filmmakers (Strictly Ballroom), has created a dazzling world full of fantastic elements to retell the story of literature's most starcrossed lovers. Luhrmann's incredible vision of Shakespeare's classic is set in a hypercreated city where people drive cars, shoot guns, and speak Elizabethan English in a contemporary American voice. Heading the cast are two of today's most talented actors: Leonardo DiCaprio as Romeo and Claire Danes as Juliet.

Nightly at 7:30 and 9:30, Sat & Sun Matinee 3pm


Microcosmos

MICROCOSMOS

February 10-16

1996, French documentary filmmakers Claude Nuridsany and Marie Perennou portray a day in the life of the bugs who inhabit a French field. Real photography, not animation. The dramatic content is surprisingly riveting.


--with a surprise special short subject--

REVENGE OF THE KINEMATOGRAPHIC CAMERAMAN
