Man of Many Mediums: A Richard Chamberlain Tribute



This series is an Aero Theatre Exclusive!


Actor Richard Chamberlain has shown equal mastery of stage, film and television over the course of more than 50 years in show business. From his star-making role as Dr. Kildare in the 1960s to appearances in everything from Shakespeare (HAMLET on both stage and TV) to disaster movies (THE TOWERING INFERNO) and two of the best miniseries in history ("The Thorn Birds" and "Shogun"), Chamberlain has kept audiences captivated. Join us at the Aero for a selection of his finest film work, classics on which Chamberlain collaborated with master filmmakers Peter Weir, Richard Lester, and Ken Russell.

We are thrilled to welcome Richard Chamberlain at the Aero Theatre!



Friday, April 30 – 7:30 PM

THE LAST WAVE, 1977, Janus Films, 106 min. Director Peter Weir's haunting supernatural parable stars Richard Chamberlain as a lawyer hired to defend an Aboriginal man accused of murder. As he delves deeper into the case, Chamberlain starts experiencing hallucinatory dreams and premonitions of a terrible impending disaster in which he plays a pivotal role. Discussion following with actor Richard Chamberlain. Buy Tickets



Saturday, May 1 – 7:30 PM

Double Feature: PETULIA, 1968, Warner Bros., 105 min. Dir. Richard Lester. George C. Scott is a middle-aged physician who finds himself drawn into the mad, idealistic and desperately sad whirlwind life of Julie Christie, who is unhappily married to Richard Chamberlain (in one of his best early performances), at the height of San Francisco's Summer of Love. Beautifully photographed by Nicolas Roeg, and featuring brief, ultra-rare appearances in their prime by Janis Joplin (with Big Brother & The Holding Company) and The Grateful Dead. Trailer

THE MUSIC LOVERS, 1970, MGM Repertory, 123 min. Dir. Ken Russell. Ken Russell applies his typically outrageous and original sensibility to the story of Tchaikovsky (Richard Chamberlain) and the woman (Glenda Jackson) he marries and abandons. Eschewing the usual biopic conventions, Russell follows the life of the great composer through expressionistic flashbacks, nightmares and fantasy sequences. Discussion in between films with actor Richard Chamberlain, moderated by Neil LaBute.  Buy Tickets
