The Exorcist Cabaret Cinema - Soundtrack - Rubin Museum
September 08, 2017 - New York

When a young girl is possessed by a demon, her mother and two Catholic priests do all they can to save her. "Friedkin took an already terrifying subject and then added layers of visual and aural cues to heighten what we were already experiencing. The film's soundtrack is filled with external noises… used to heighten the tension. Robert Knudson and Chris Newman won the Academy Award for sound mixing, and it's hard to think of a film in which sound is used more effectively. But in discussing the use of sound in The Exorcist, it is equally important to recognize how well Friedkin and his sound crew utilized silence and stillness." —Mike Holtzclaw, Daily Press About Cabaret Cinema: Soundtrack You can probably name the best movie you've seen, but what about the best movie you've heard? It might be your favorite because of its sound effects, sound engineering, score, or another element of the audio experience.

September 10, 2017 - Washington Heights

United Palace, the former Loew's 175th Street Theatre which opened in 1930, kicks off a year-long classic movie series celebrating the building's past as a "Wonder Theatre" and its state-of-the-art cinematic return with a DCP projector donated by Broadway superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda, and new audio equipment. "Movies That Reawaken Wonder" was curated by the nonprofit United Palace of Cultural Arts (UPCA) to celebrate the magic of movies and movie-going. It explores why we fall in love with films, such as how "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" evokes "the wonder of childhood" and "Night of the Living Dead" conjures "the wonder of horror." Some titles are thematically matched to the month, such as "The Sound of Music" before Mother's Day and "Coming to America" before July Fourth. To honor the theatre's vaudeville past, live entertainment is packaged with the screenings.

Bringing together the work of three innovative chroniclers, Proof: Francisco Goya, Sergei Eisenstein, Robert Longo offers insight into the energy, empathy, and creativity with which these artists recounted and reimagined their realities. Together spanning four centuries and three continents, Spanish artist Francisco Goya (1746–1828), Russian filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein (1898–1948), and contemporary American artist Robert Longo (born 1953) each witnessed a turbulent transition from one era to another and the profound repercussions of revolution, war, and civil unrest. Within a broad chronological framework, Proof traces the historical lineage of a visual language and artistic impulse.
