Latest BIMA film series sees ‘Darkness at Noon’

The gritty heart of America cinema of the 1970s and ‘80s is the theme of the latest smARTfilm series at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, a five-week festival which kicks off Tuesday, May 28 with 1975’s “Night Moves.”

Directed by Arthur Penn, the 1975 crime/mystery thriller sees hard-nosed private investigator Harry Moseby (played by Gene Hackman) who, looking to distract himself from a rapidly deteriorating marriage, takes a case from an aging B-movie queen (Janet Ward) to locate her runaway daughter, Delly (Melanie Griffith). His search takes him to the Florida Keys, where the girl has been hiding out with her stepfather Tom (John Crawford) and his lover Paula (Jennifer Warren). Harry initiates an affair with Paula and soon learns the case is more complex than he first thought.

The series, curated by Tova Gannana, will continue weekly, every Tuesday, and include screenings of “The Friends of Eddie Coyle” (1973) on June 4, “Five Easy Pieces” (1970) on June 11, “Atlantic City” (1980) on June 18, and “Body Heat” (1981) on June 25.

Both matinee and evening screenings of each film are scheduled, the earlier shows beginning at 2 p.m., the latter at 7:30 p.m.

Admission for a series pass, which includes all the films, is $40 for BIMA members and $48 for non-members. Single tickets for any one film are $10 for members, $12 for non-members.

Tickets are available through www.brownpapertickets.com, or visit www.biartmuseum.org for more information.

Lunch or dinner at the museum’s Bistro is also available. Reservations are recommended (206-451-4011) and the cost is not included in ticket price.
