Actual Film at the Grand Illusion

This week the Grand Illusion kicks off a multi-week celebration of 35mm, with matched pairs of classic films from the 60s to the 90s. This first week features a pair of 50 year old Steve McQueen classics, the heist film The Thomas Crown Affair and the cop drama Bullitt, with its justly-celebrated car chase. Next week is a pair from Stanley Kubrick: The Shining and Barry Lyndon (which should be a must-see on film). Then two underrated crime classics from directors more famous for other movies: To Live and Die in LA from William Friedkin and Ronin by John Frankenheimer. The series concludes with the sci-fi films Outland, by Peter Hyams and Demolition Man, from Marco Brambilla. These days 35mm is almost wholly absent from Seattle Screens, and when we do get something it’s usually one of the same old titles that play again and again. Only the Grand Illusion is cool enough to give us a series with both Barry Lyndon and Demolition Man.
