UPDATE: Reps for the Garden Theatre released a statement Tuesday on Malick. The director was previously noted to attend a screening at the venue in the original post on its website, but his name no longer appears in the event listing. “At this time, we can not confirm any details regarding our October 21 screening of Journey to Italy, other than to say that we are screening the film as scheduled and that there are no public tickets available at this time,” the statement said.
The original story is below:
Avant-garde director Terrence Malick is set to make a rare appearance at the Garden Theatre in Princeton, New Jersey to honor director Roberto Rossellini.
On Oct. 21, the Cinema Today event will feature Rossellini’s Journey to Italy, the George Sanders and Ingrid Bergman 1954 drama. The theater’s website confirms the Tree of Life director will present the newly restored version of the film, with a live Q&A to follow the screening.
Malick’s reclusive nature makes this event a must-see for film fans and those eager to hear the director’s thoughts on the industry. His latest film, The Voyage of Time, will release on Oct. 7 with narration by Brad Pitt. Weightless, starring Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, and Michael Fassbender is set to release on March 17, 2017.
The Lewis Center for the Arts launched the Cinema Today series to feature contemporary filmmakers’ experiences and insight with the Princeton community. “The series tackles many pressing social concerns at the heart of cinema, as well as significant aesthetic issues,” according to the theatre’s site.
