Double Feature: Beautiful New Digital Restoration! A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, 1971, Warner Bros., 137 min. Director Stanley Kubrick was so stunned by Malcolm McDowell's debut in IF... that he reportedly was unwilling to begin his film adaptation of Anthony Burgess' savagely brutal, futuristic satire until he could be assured of the actor’s participation. A CLOCKWORK ORANGE proved to be more prophetic than anyone dreamed, presaging the punk explosion and skinhead-fomented violence in the later 1970s. [Restored DCP]
TIME AFTER TIME, 1979, Warner Bros. 112 min. One of his most popular and engaging films finds Malcolm McDowell as Victorian author H.G. Wells, in pursuit of Jack the Ripper (David Warner), time-traveling to contemporary San Francisco and finding help and romance from shy modern girl Mary Steenburgen. A marvelously entertaining blend of sci-fi, literary history and modern pop culture from Nicholas Meyer, the director of STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN. [35mm]
Discussion between films with actor Malcolm McDowell. Don’t miss McDowell receiving his star on Hollywood Boulevard at 11:00 AM the day of the screening!
