Faro Island Film Festival: Outstanding Artistic Contribution award winner!

4/4 Stars! “one of the most haunting spaces in the movies…a boldly surrealist film.” (Roger Ebert)

4/4 Stars! “masterwork of the silent era…to look at the screen of this film is to witness a portal into a complex, heretofore unknown dimension of cinematic representation.” (Slant)

Un Chien Andalou:

Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí present 16 minutes of bizarre, surreal imagery.

100%! “A hugely influential masterpiece stuffed with iconic sequences, Un Chien Andalou has lost none of its power to enthrall – or unsettle.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

4/4 Stars! “absolutely essential viewing for anyone seriously interested in cinema.” (Combustible Celluloid)

4/4 Stars! “a masterpiece” (Larsen On Film)

*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!

A stranger called Allan goes to the House of Usher. He is the sole friend of Roderick Usher, who lives in the eerie house with his sick wife Madeleine. When she dies, Roderick does not accept her death, and in the dark night, Madeleine returns.
