Repertory Series ArchiveThe Bard Unbound: Shakespeare on Screen

My Own Private Idaho

Buy Tickets


Double Feature with CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT

(1991) dir Gus Van Sant w/River Phoenix, Keanu Reeves, William Richert, Udo Kier [104 min; 35mm]
A strange, anarchic film that weaves together the story of a narcoleptic hustler (Rivers) with Shakespeare’s Henry IV. Visually dazzling and thematically groundbreaking, MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO is a deeply moving look at unrequited love and life on society’s margins.

“A simultaneously heartbreaking and exhilarating road movie.” – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

“This is a very rich, very sympathetic piece of work.” – Dave Kehr, Chicago Tribune
