Description

Live Show! “My Life in the Movies and Other Places,” 60 min. Michael Winner’s one-man show traces through hilarious stories his life in show business, how he became a top Hollywood director and his second career as a popular restaurant critic for The Sunday Times. Always met with gales of laughter and awe are his tales of the stars he directed and befriended over the course of his life, including Marlon Brando, Sophia Loren, Charles Bronson, Burt Lancaster, Orson Welles, Faye Dunaway, Anthony Hopkins and many others – even O.J. Simpson.

Plus Double Feature: Death Wish, 1974, Paramount Pictures, 93 min. Dir. Michael Winner. Mild-mannered architect Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) unleashes his inner vigilante when his wife and daughter are attacked in this extremely influential thriller. Often imitated but never matched for raw power, Death Wish is action filmmaking of the highest order and contains one of Charles Bronson’s most iconic performances.

Rare 35mm print! T_he Nightcomers,_ 1971, AVCO Embassy Pictures, 96 min. Dir. Michael Winner. Marlon Brando stars in this audacious prequel to Henry James’s Turn of the Screw, which examines the events leading up to the deaths of Peter Quint and Ms. Jessel, and the steady descent into evil experienced by the children in their care.

Director Michael Winner will perform his one-man show and introduce the double feature.
