Noises Off, Lights Down: A Tribute to the Picture Shows of Peter Bogdanovich



This series is an Aero Theatre Exclusive!


Like his mentor Howard Hawks, Peter Bogdanovich has made a career of creating intelligent, varied entertainments that have two things in common: a love of humanity and a deep sense of the craft of film. As a director Bogdanovich deftly moves from one genre to another, honing a style of long takes and classical compositions that prioritize story and performance. Like Jean Renoir, Bogdanovich knows that everyone has his or her reasons, and the empathy with which he views his often-troubled characters makes his films timeless. Please join us for a two-night tribute to the director, in which we will screen double features of the Bogdanovich classics NOISES OFF and THEY ALL LAUGHED, and SAINT JACK and DAISY MILLER.

Thursday, March 18 – 7:30 PM

Double Feature: NOISES OFF..., 1992, Disney, 101 min. Dir. Peter Bogdanovich. One of the funniest films of the last 20 years! A director (Michael Caine) tries to get a group of bumbling actors ready for a stage production in which one disaster follows another. Peter Bogdanovich's adaptation of Michael Frayn's stage farce features a stellar cast including John Ritter, Denholm Elliott, Carol Burnett, Christopher Reeve and Marilu Henner.

THEY ALL LAUGHED, 1981, HBO Films, 115 min. Peter Bogdanovich uses the private-eye genre as a vehicle to deliver deeply romantic insights about love, marriage and regret. John Ritter and Ben Gazzara work for the Odyssey Detective Agency, a firm where the investigators are more concerned with their own complicated love lives than with solving any cases. Audrey Hepburn and Dorothy Stratten co-star in this hilarious ensemble dramedy, a film that Quentin Tarantino declared one of the 10 greatest ever made. Buy Tickets



Friday, March 19 – 7:30 PM

Double Feature: SAINT JACK, 1979, Concorde-New Horizon, 112 min. One of director Peter Bogdanovich’s best and most underrated films is adapted from the Paul Theroux novel and features Ben Gazzara as an easygoing, expatriate American pimp in Vietnam-era Singapore. Exceptionally authentic location atmosphere highlights this fascinating character study. With Denholm Elliott, Joss Ackland, George Lazenby.

DAISY MILLER, 1974, Paramount, 91 min. Dir. Peter Bogdanovich. Cybill Shepherd plays the title character, an American making her way through European society in the late 1800s, in this beautifully mounted Henry James adaptation. Buy Tickets
