Free Event – See Below for Details

Elements of Cinema Returns!

Free Screening & Discussion

(1947) dir Jacques Tourneur w/Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer, Kirk Douglas [97 min; 35mm]
Small-town gas jockey Jeff Bailey (Mitchum) seems happy leading a quiet life, but it isn’t long before his past catches up to him. Partially told in flashback, OUT OF THE PAST perfectly captures one of the first rules of film noir: No one can outrun their evil acts.

Elements of Cinema logoWe’re thrilled to resurrect ELEMENTS OF CINEMA, our monthly free screening and discussion series, thanks in part to a grant from the NEA!

This special free screening will be followed by a discussion about film noir and genre lead by the Brattle staff.
