Series: Foreign Affairs
This is part of Free Member Screenings
For our December Foreign Affairs screening, the Hollywood Theatre proudly presents Ingmar Bergman’s towering cinematic achievement on 35mm. Free for Hollywood members!
Disillusioned and exhausted after a decade of battling in the Crusades, a knight (Max von Sydow) encounters Death on a desolate beach and challenges him to a fateful game of chess. Much studied, imitated, even parodied but never outdone, Bergman’s stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning was one of the benchmark foreign imports of America’s 1950s art-house heyday, pushing cinema’s boundaries and ushering in a new era of moviegoing.
Reserved seating available for our Visionary and Cinephile Society members. Click here for more details about these membership levels.
