40th Anniversary! New Digital Restoration!
Friday, December 15 – Thursday, December 21
Fans of phantasmagoric horror cinema rejoice! Finally, after years of dubious prints and dodgy DVDs, Dario Argento’s legendary masterpiece returns to the big screen in a brand new, stunning 4K restoration. You may have been lucky enough to see the recent 35mm tour of the original, uncut European version but these screenings are of the definitive restoration of the 99-minute U.S. release version – a little lighter on the gore but no less astounding in its over-the-top, operatic imagery.
For those unfamiliar… In Argento’s signature horror film, a young American dancer named Suzy (Harper) travels to Germany to attend an exclusive ballet school. Surrounded by mystery and murder, she soon discovers that the school is under the sway of a coven of powerful witches – and that her curiosity has put her in terrible danger.
SUSPIRIA (1977) dir Dario Argento w/Jessica Harper, Stefania Casini, Flavio Bucci, Miguel Bosé, Barbara Magnolfi, Udo Kier, Alida Valli, Joan Bennett [99 min; DCP; English-language version]
