FIVE EASY PIECES @ 7:20pm
Masterfully directed by Bob Rafelson and beautifully written by Carole Eastman, Five Easy Pieces features the superb Jack Nicholson in his first major lead role as a promising pianist who has thrown it all away to work on an oil rig. Karen Black and Susan Anspach contribute brilliant characterizations as the ladies in his life. Black was Oscar-nominated for her memorable and gut-wrenching performance as the clingy, vulnerable waitress who desperately needs to be loved. (1970, 98 min, 4K DCP)

+ MODEL SHOP @ 5:30 & 9:10pm
Following their first collaboration Lola, French filmmaker Jacques Demy (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) reunited with Anouk Aimée for his first—and only—American film. Shiftless, unemployed architect Gary Lockwood encounters beautiful but detached rent-a-girl Aimée and begins following her. Through hypnotic driving sequences from Malibu Beach to Beverly Hills mansions to Santa Monica Boulevard's cheap strip joints, Demy’s camera glides through Los Angeles with a critical eye. (1968, 95 min, 4K DCP)
