Featured Film:

Beauty and the Beast at the Grand Illusion

Hard to think of a better way to celebrate the 12th anniversary of the current iteration of the U-District’s venerable Grand Illusion Cinema than with a 35mm print of Jean Cocteau’s classic 1946 fairy tale. Decades ahead of its time in the integration of the surreal and avant-garde into popular filmmaking, Cocteau’s adaptation of the story by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont remains, 70 years after its release, a landmark in special effects. Among the greatest works of magic in film history, only scattered moments in movies by the likes of Georges Méliès, Ray Harryhausen and Tsui Hark can even dare to be considered in the same breath.
