"Why shouldn't I have just as much as any other woman in the world?" asks the ex-prostitute played by Jane Russell in The Revolt of Mamie Stover. Run out of San Francisco, Stover hopes to start a new life in Honolulu. Things are looking up when she meets a nice guy on the way, becomes the main attraction at the local dance hall cantina, and makes a fortune in real estate when World War II breaks out. Despite all this, her past comes back to haunt her, complicating any hopes of true happiness. Shot in Cinemascope and presented in a new restoration, this classic (and Waikiki Beach) has never looked better! With Richard Egan, Joan Leslie, and Agnes Moorehead. (92 mins., 4K DCP)

“Of all of Renoir’s films Monsieur Lange is the most spontaneous, the richest in miracles of camera work, the most full of pure beauty and truth. In short, it is a film touched by divine grace.”—François Truffaut

In The Crime of Monsieur Lange, by the great humanist director Jean Renoir (The Rules of the Game), the employees of a small publisher form a cooperative to keep it running when their lascivious miser of a boss disappears ahead of his creditors. The company is thriving on the strength of a clerk’s American-style cowboy stories when who should reappear to retake his place at the head of the company? The French classic features new subtitles supervised by Bruce Goldstein, who’ll discuss the history and art of subtitling following the screening. (80 mins., 4K DCP)

A reworking of his screwball classic Bringing Up Baby, Howard Hawks’s Monkey Business stars Cary Grant as a mild-mannered scientist working on an anti-aging elixir. When a chimpanzee breaks loose in the lab and remixes the chemicals, anarchy ensues for all who take the formula including Grant, who suddenly can’t resist his boss’s secretary, played by Marilyn Monroe! (97 mins., 4K DCP)

Long before The Godfather, Francis Ford Coppola wrote and directed Dementia 13, a gothic horror tale complete with a creepy Irish castle, a contested inheritance, and an ax murderer running amok. Produced by B-movie legend Roger Corman, the film features William Campbell, Luana Anders, and Patrick Magee. The program also includes the original seven-minute prologue intended to determine if the audience was fit to see the film! (76 mins., 4K DCP)

Screening first is Sofia Coppola’s debut film Lick the Star, about a group of high school girls who plot against the school’s boys with a little inspiration from the novel Flowers in the Attic. Peter Bogdanovich has a cameo as the school’s principal. (16 mins., 4K DCP)
