The Elephant Man

6:30pm. David Lynch directed this sensitive, Oscar-nominated portrait of the tragic life of John Merrick, whose cranial deformities made him a sideshow freak in nineteenth-century London. Even behind layers of makeup, Hurt is remarkable and dignified as the poor soul, and Hopkins is exceptional as the sympathetic surgeon who introduces him to civilized society. This work of rare compassion is enhanced by dreamlike black-and-white cinematography by the great Freddie Francis. Admission: FREE with Museum admission. See more.

Days of Heaven (Screening)

4:30 p.m. There's no better way to experience Malick's one-of-a-kind work of cinematic poetry than in the theater. Featuring Oscar-winning cinematography by Nestor Almendros, this gloriously realized evocation of the turn of the twentieth century, as seen by laborers in the fields of a Texas farmstead, is one of cinema's most remarkable period pieces. It's also a romantic tragedy, as idiosyncratically told as it is indescribably beautiful. Admission: FREE with Museum admission. See more.
