See how Lean takes on adaptations of Charles Dickens and Noël Coward in newly restored prints.
Dickens’s dark vision of Victorian London has never looked better than in Lean’s adaptation of Oliver Twist. With Robert Newton, John Howard Davies, and Alec Guinness in his controversial portrayal of Fagin, his second major role. (115 mins., 35mm)
A rare comedy by Lean, Blithe Spirit stars Rex Harrison as a cynical novelist whose current marriage is disrupted by the ghost of his first wife, visible only to him. Noël Coward wrote the script from his own 1941 play. (95 mins., 35mm)
Blithe Spirit begins at 9:05 PM.
