An Evening with Frederick Wiseman

On 10/26, spend a very special evening with the great filmmaker Frederick Wiseman, including a screening of his 2022 film A Couple, a rare fiction feature that looks at the long marriage between Leo and Sophie Tolstoy through a series of monologues, followed by a conversation between Wiseman and series curator David Schwartz.


The Witches

A singular collaboration between vanguard filmmaker Nicolas Roeg and visionary artist Jim Henson, The Witches adapts one of Roald Dahl’s most frightful books for children with phantasmagoric gusto.



Kurosawa’s master class in alienated dread spawned a U.S. remake, but the original remains the best of the internet-horror subgenre and one of the most terrifying movies ever made.


The Exorcist III

Set 15 years later, the film follows Lieutenant William F. Kinderman (Scott) and his investigation of a string of bizarre murders around Georgetown that seem to link back to a long-dead serial killer.


Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

Perhaps the most faithful transposition of the Batman character from comic book to film, this animated film from 1993 screens on 35mm 10/28, 10/29, and 11/3.


Next Time We Love

In his first starring role, James Stewart plays a New York reporter separated from his wife (Margaret Sullavan) when he’s posted to Rome and she refuses to give up her acting career. Marsha Gordon will sign copies of her book Becoming the Ex-Wife: The Unconventional Life & Forgotten Writings of Ursula Parrott, after the October 28 screening.

1974: The Possession of Altair

First-time filmmaker Victor Dryere utilizes analog technology and the gimmick of found-footage horror to create warm, foggy imagery that expertly shocks and scares.  


The Village 

M. Night Shyamalan's most conceptually complex, intricately patterned film, a Bush-era political allegory that evokes the literature of Hawthorne and Irving in its deeply American fears of the unknown, screens on 35mm 10/21 and 10/28.


This ’80s horror cult favorite directed by Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund, is a zany, gory snapshot of suburban fears over new technologies and outcast teenagers left alone to their own devices amidst the decade’s infamous “Satanic Panic.” 


Unfriended: Dark Web 

The best and scariest of the new "desktop horror" subgenre of films is Unfriended: Dark Web, in which a young man makes the very bad mistake of bringing home a discarded laptop from a coffee house


A collaboration by producer Dario Argento and director Lamberto Bava, the horror cult classic Demons, screening 10/28, is a marvel of bloody special effects about a movie screening gone terrifyingly wrong.


We’re All Going to the World’s Fair 

Jane Schoenbrun appears in person Sunday, October 22, at 2:30 p.m. with her feature debut, which uses the textures and trappings of the horror genre to descend into a striking depiction of a particularly 21st-century loneliness.
