After three long months, Enzian is thrilled to be able to once again open its doors, turn on the projector, and serve our community by screening both acclaimed new art house releases and influential and iconic repertory titles!
Kicking off week four is “Christopher Nolan Week.” Born in July 1970 and raised in London, Christopher Nolan might be one of the most iconic “American” filmmakers. Using his dual birthright (his mother is American), he has stamped his signature worldview on a host of exceptional films over the past 22 years – in the process garnering himself 5 Oscar® nominations as a writer, director, and producer. Enzian proudly brings Nolan’s acclaimed Dark Knight Trilogy back to the big screen for one week only. Considered some of the greatest comic book adaptations of all time, the trio of films combined were nominated for 230 international awards, won 3 Oscars (including Heath Ledger’s iconic performance as The Joker), and made nearly $2.5 billion at the worldwide box office. They stand as a testament to a perfectly achieved cinematic vision.
Along with The Dark Knight Trilogy, Enzian will host a special 10th anniversary, one-night-only showcase of Nolan’s masterpiece, Inception (4 Oscars and 8 nominations), and later in August, a rare 35mm showing of his first feature film, Following (1998), will screen as part of our Cult Classics series. So, come out and celebrate one of the most acclaimed filmmakers of his generation.
In addition to Christopher Nolan Week, we are thrilled to bring in John Lewis: Good Trouble, a documentary that chronicles Lewis’ 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform, and immigration.
Enzian is also excited to be able to reschedule special programming that was postponed due to the pandemic. This includes our Uncomfortable Brunch series, which starts again this Sunday with Dogtooth, an early masterwork from the director of The Lobster and The Favourite.
