- 6:00 PM One Showing Only: Saturday Nov 2
Join us for a special viewing, on the 66th Anniversary of the Flight of the Spruce Goose! A biopic depicting the early years of legendary director and aviator Howard Hughes’ career, from the late 1920s to the mid-1940s. The script begins as a young Hughes directs one of Scorsese’s favorite films, Hell’s Angels. Hughes was so obsessed with perfection in the aerial sequences that he waits forever for perfect conditions, right down to cloud formations. The Aviator ends in 1946, when Hughes was still a dashing young man and romancing actresses like Ava Gardner and Katharine Hepburn. Rated PG-13 for thematic elements, sexual content, nudity, language and a crash sequence. Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Kate Beckinsale.
