35MM PRESENTATION

Less a sequel to Cat People, and more a paranormal children's noir that is unlike virtually anything Hollywood has ever made, Curse of the Cat People is at once thrilling, chilling and heartbreaking. Amy is a troubled child, prone to daydreaming, who begins a friendship with her father's deceased former wife, appearing in their snow-covered backyard. Psychologically complex, at times painful, gorgeous to behold, this underrated noir deserves to be appreciated on the Heights' silver screen.

35MM PRESENTATION

Though it's named for its eponymous heroine, Mildred Pierce is driven by insidious Veda, Mildred's daughter, and one of the most greedy young women in noir history. Seemingly driven to wealth and its trappings since birth, Veda manipulates her hard-working mother to give her everything, without a drop of compassion in her black soul. Mildred Pierce won Joan Crawford a well-deserved Oscar, but Ann Blyth is captivating as the poisonous daughter.

Hitchcock claimed that this was his favorite of his many classics, and we would be hard pressed to disagree. Simultaneously sweet and poisonous, Shadow of Doubt is the story the urbane Uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotten, never more bitter) who returns to his small hometown to visit his sister and especially young Charlie, (Teresa Wright, perfect as the bored teen) the niece who idolizes him. That is, until she discovers some terrible secrets lurking behind the dapper Uncle who seems to harbor a seething hatred of rich women. Wright and Cotten are in perfect synch with one another, creating a strange chemistry that will not soon be forgotten.

DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION

Fargo's outrageous story of a kidnapping gone very wrong is grounded by Frances McDormand's Oscar-winning role as Marge Gunderson, the very pregnant police chief of Brainerd, whose persistence and wisdom wins the day. Fargo is at once an intensely violent and painful look at loneliness and greed, and a hilarious send up of hot dish Minnesota nice.
