April 2nd features a skype conversation before the screening with Amy Heller, President of Milestone Films 

Looking for opportunity, five brothers move north with their mother to Milan. There, Simone and Rocco find fame, in the boxing ring, and love, in the same woman—Nadia. Jealousy mounts, blood is shed, and a striving family faces self-destruction in this incisive, sensuous, emotionally bruising masterwork from director Luchino Visconti. Painstakingly restored in 4K by the Film Foundation and the Cineteca di Bologna, Rocco and His Brothers has never looked or sounded so pristine. Praised by Martin Scorsese as “one of the most sumptuous black-and-white pictures,” the film’s baroque, impassioned majesty can once again be experienced as its filmmakers intended.

Restoration Tuesdays: our new ongoing series of newly restored films, is generously sponsored by IATSE 856. All admissions to these screenings is $5.
