Curtis Hanson's 1997 L.A. Confidential

Michael Mann's 1981 Thief

“[Michael Mann] pounds his film into you in a combination of big, clean images; taut, edgy performances and a score which intertwinesboth sound and music. There is no respite from Thief; it is bravura movie making.” - LA TimesSaturday, April 13, 2024 | 6:30 p.m. | GET TICKETS HERE

Alexander Mackendrick's 1957 Sweet Smell of Success 

“With some of the sharpest dialogue ever cut in Hollywood, only on the most superficial level is this a movie aboutgossip and publicity.” - Empire MagazineSunday, April 14, 2024 | 2:30 p.m. | GET TICKETS HERE

“Directed by Antoine Barraud, the film... cleverly fills out the picture through tiny hints and glances, creating suspense through fresh turns of ambiguity in each scene.” - New York TimesSunday, April 14, 2024 | 7 p.m. | GET TICKETS HERE
