Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the only Horror film to ever win an Oscar for Best Picture (much less sweep all five of the main categories!) FBI trainee Clarice Starling (Foster) is quite simply one of cinema’s most important she-roes. This top notch thriller pits her into the psychological depths of not just one (Hannibal Lecter), not two (Buffalo Bill), but a terrain of terrifying troublemakers. Showcasing stunning camerawork, horrific set designs, jaw-dropping editing and complex gender issues that are literally taught in film schools around the world.

Manhunter 9:30 pm
Directed by Michael Mann Written by Michael Mann Cinematography by Dante Spinotti Containing William Petersen, Joan Allen, Brian Cox, Dennis Farina, Tom Noonan
Made five years before the Oscar sweeping phenomena of The Silence of the Lambs, this prequel follows FBI agent Will Graham (Petersen) as he spirals into the minds of multiple maniacs including cinema’s first brush with Hannibal Lecter (played strikingly by Brian Cox.) Director Michael Mann’s neo-noir, neon aesthetic makes this hyper-stylized, spine-chiller one of the most unnerving films of the 1980s. Some might argue that Manhunter is one of the major influences on modern TV and movies. Come find out for yourself with the 30th Anniversary, Widescreen (2.35) 35mm presentation courtesy of UCLA.
