Event Details

The originally scheduled ORPHEUS is no longer available by the distributor. We have chosen another Cocteau feature considered a classic in French cinema. This is not the Disney version; there is no singing teapot. :)

Jean Cocteau's sublime adaptation of Mme. Leprince de Beaumont's fairy-tale masterpiece--in which the pure love of a beautiful girl melts the heart of a feral but gentle beast--is a landmark of motion picture fantasy, with unforgettably romantic performances by Jean Marais and Josette Day. The spectacular visions of enchantment, desire, and death in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (La Belle et la Bete) have become timeless icons of cinematic wonder. In French with English subtitles.
