THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

Belle Toujours
DIRECTOR: MANOEL DE OLIVEIRA
PORTUGAL/FRANCE
In a tribute to cinema greats Luis Buñuel and Jean–Claude Carrière, prolific Portuguese auteur Manoel de Oliveira's latest film serves as a witty sequel to Buñuel's erotic 1967 masterpiece Belle de Jour. Séverine (originally played by Catherine Deneuve, and now by Bulle Ogier) has a secret—her adulterous stint as a prostitute at a high–level brothel, fueled by an irrepressible desire for violent and aggressive sex. Thirty–eight years later, Henri (Michel Piccoli), friend to Séverine's late husband Pierre, spots a woman he believes to be Séverine and follows her through Paris. Upon confirming her identity, he convinces Séverine to meet with him, uprooting her long–suppressed history. Belle Toujours, succeeding both as homage and another original vision from a now 98–year–old master, reminds us that the past may be distant, but it cannot be eluded forever. In French with English subtitles. ( 70 min )


Selected Filmography: The Rite of Spring (63), The Satin Slipper (85), The Divine Comedy (91), The Letter (99), A Talking Picture (03).
