Renowned actor Alfred Molina arrives at American Cinematheque's historic Egyptian Theatre, a Hollywood movie palace built in 1922, for a screening and live discussion of Stanley Kubrick's 1960 masterpiece, Spartacus. Screening in breathtaking 70mm, Spartacus is a visually stunning, emotionally stirring tale, starring Kirk Douglas, Lawrence Olivier and Charles Laughton, about a gladiator who leads a violent revolt against Roman tyranny. The winner of four Academy Awards, among them the prize for Best Cinematography, Spartacus was hand-selected by Molina, who was convinced to become an actor after viewing it as child. Learn More
