Ballet on the Big Screen Sleeping Beauty At The Enzian Theater

sleeping-beauty_paris_enz

Ballet on the Big Screen:
SLEEPING BEAUTY

SATURDAY AT 11AM

Described by Rudolf Nureyev as the “ballet of ballets,” “Sleeping Beauty” remains one of the jewels in the heritage of dance. In its splendid fantasy, dream and reality overlap, and the forces of Good and Evil battle for the fate of two innocents. Rudolf Nureyev restaged the work in 1989 for the Paris Opera Ballet, devising a choreography of dazzling academic virtuosity. Alternating between lavish ensembles and pas de deux “Sleeping Beauty” includes the famous Rose Adagio, one of the most challenging sequences in all of ballet. With sumptuous sets and costumes by Ezio Frigerio and Franca Squarciapino, this production of “Sleeping Beauty” is one of the most outstandingly accomplished masterpieces in the classical repertoire.

Enzian Announces Saturday Matinee Classics Lineup

Every second Saturday of the month, Enzian offers a legendary cinematic masterpiece the way it should be seen – on the big screen! The lineup for the remainder of this year represents iconic moments in film history that every film lover should see. Each screening begins with a special brief introduction that will engage the audience with fascinating information about the film. Tickets are $8 and only $5 for Enzian members.

Saturday, July 14, 11:00 a.m.
CHILDREN OF PARADISE (1945)
Rated PG
Director Marcel Carne’s entrancing love story “Children of Paradise” has often been called “the French ‘Gone With the Wind.’” Filmed during the German occupation, this French milestone centers around the theatrical life of a beautiful courtesan and the four men who love her in their own ways: a mime, an actor, a criminal, and an aristocrat. Nominated for an Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay, the brand new restoration of this
grand masterpiece creates the richest pictorial detail that’s ever been seen along with a fully-restored soundtrack.

Saturday, August 11, 11:00 a.m.
THE GODFATHER PART II (1974)
Rated R
Director Francis Ford Coppola’s legendary sequel to his landmark 1972 film, “The Godfather Part II,” follows the young Vito Corleone’s rise and his son Michael’s spiritual fall. This movie of staggering magnitude and vision garnered eleven Academy Award® nominations and six wins including Best Picture. Robert De Niro took home the Oscar® for Best Supporting Actor.

Saturday, September 8, Noon
AN AMERICAN IN PARIS (1951)
Not Rated
Fall in love with this timeless musical gem featuring Gene Kelly in top form, a classic George Gershwin score, and the romantic City of Lights that claimed six Academy Awards® including Best Picture. From catchy tunes like “I Got Rhythm” and “Love is
Here to Stay” to an extravagant ballet performance, it’s movie magic at its best.

Saturday, October 13, Noon
THE SHINING (1980)
Rated R
Just in time for Halloween, Enzian presents Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Stephen King’s horror masterpiece. Jack Torrence (a defining role for Jack Nicholson), his wife (Shelley Duvall), and psychic son Danny (Danny Lloyd) are snowed in at the remote, foreboding Overlook Hotel and soon discover that its spirits have a sinister plan. Remember “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” so join us for some intense,
downright scary fun!

Saturday, November 10, 11:00 a.m.
NASHVILLE (1975)
Rated R
One of the most celebrated films of the 1970s, Robert Altman’s Oscar®-winning epic presents a portrayal and critique of the American obsession with celebrities. The intersecting stories of 24 characters through five days in the country music capital come together in a dramatic climax. Keith Carradine, Lily Tomlin, Karen Black, Ned Beatty, Scott Glenn, Jeff Goldblum, and many others make up the extraordinary ensemble cast.

Saturday, December 8, Noon
IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE (1946)
Not Rated
An Enzian Tradition! This Frank Capra wintertime comedy/drama stars James Stewart and was nominated for five Academy Awards® including Best Actor, Best Director, and Best Picture. The epiphany of movie sentiment and a transcendent experience, “It’s a Wonderful Life” tells the story of an angel helping a compassionate but despairingly frustrated businessman by showing what life would have been like if he never existed.
