Friday, August 10 – 7:30 PM
Double Feature: COMPANEROS (VAMOS A MATAR, COMPANEROS), 1970, 118 min. Dir. Sergio Corbucci. Electrifying showdown between greats Franco Nero and Tomas Milian begins, but so does the flashback: Swedish gunrunner Nero has a trainload of arms, with his payoff locked in a safe that only pacifist rebel leader rival Fernando Rey can open. But joint-puffing Jack Palance and his flesh-loving falcon bear a grudge. In Italian with English subtitles. [35mm]
THE PRICE OF POWER (IL PREZZO DEL POTERE), 1969, 108 min. Dir. Tonino Valerii. In Dallas, as a liberal, anti-racist president cavalcades through the town, violence breaks out, with an alleged assassin shot down during a prison transfer. 1963? JFK? No, it’s 1881 and Van Johnson’s President Garfield, with Fernando Rey leading the conspirators. In Italian with English subtitles. Not available on DVD. [35mm] Special Ticket Prices: $13 General, $11 Student/Senior, $9 Member. “For a few dollars more” you can see this once-in-a-lifetime screening with live subtitles!
