The Bird With The Crystal Plumage – Dario Argento Mini Film Fest – Screening on June 2, 5, 7!
American Genre Film Archive 4K Restoration!
In 1970, Dario Argento (DEEP RED, SUSPIRIA) indelibly redefined the “giallo” genre of murder-mystery thrillers with THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE—a mind-bending mix of murder, obsession, and art. A staggeringly assured first feature, this film establishes the key traits that define Argento’s filmography, including lavish visuals and a flare for wildly inventive and brutal scenes of violence. With sumptuous cinematography by Vittorio Storaro (APOCALYPSE NOW) and a seductive Ennio Morricone score, this landmark film has never looked better in this 4K restoration.

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!
