Nitrate Screening! Black Narcissus – 35mm Archival Print

March 18 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Nitrate screenings don’t happen every day in Hollywood, as, these prints are incredibly rare and delicate. Presented in partnership with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Cinematheque will project an Archival Nitrate Print on March 18th! Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s exquisite (and surprisingly erotic) drama of spiritual devotion and earthly temptation stars the luminous Deborah Kerr as a nun nearly overwhelmed by the physical beauty of her new Himalayan home, and the worldly charms of rugged David Farrar.
