Program Notes

Come witness William Friedkin’s newest lensing of a catholic exorcism back-to-back with the extended director’s cut of his original horror genre landmark!

 

7:00 PM: THE DEVIL AND FATHER AMORTH
William Friedkin • 2017
Friedkin documents Father Gabriele Amorth’s ninth exorcism — that of an Italian woman who had been experiencing behavioral changes and “fits” that could not be explained by psychiatry, and which became worse during Christian holidays.

8:15 PM: Intermission

8:45 PM: THE EXORCIST – EXTENDED DIRECTOR’S CUT
William Friedkin • 1973
Controversial and popular from the moment it opened, THE EXORCIST endures as a defining classic that influenced movies afterward and still shocks and haunts today. The frightening and realistic tale of an innocent girl inhabited by a terrifying entity, her mother’s frantic resolve to save her and two priests — one doubt-ridden, the other a rock of faith — joined in battling ultimate evil always leaves viewers breathless. In the Extended Director’s Cut, director William Friedkin and producer/screenwriter William Peter Blatty integrated over 10 minutes of footage deleted before the film’s 1973 release. They include moments deepening the impact of a first-rate ensemble’s remarkable performances and reinforcing the film’s grip on it’s audience.

 

Tickets will be available for the individual films, or together as a double feature at a discounted rate.
