THURSDAY 4 MAY AT 6.30 P.M. GOLDFINGER
Goldfinger hardly needs an introduction! Although the third Bond film and 59 years old, it remains one of the best with some of the most memorable characters from the entire series - Goldfinger himself, Oddjob and Pussy Galore among others. Bond is instructed by the Bank of England and MI6 to investigate gold magnate Auric Goldfinger, who is building up a vast store of gold bars. Bond soon realises that the gold-obsessed tycoon has hatched a secret scheme, code-name 'Operation Grand Slam', and that the fate of the entire western economy may be at stake if he is not stopped.
- The third, and by far the best, of the Bond jobs. [Los Angeles Free Press]
- It's phenomenal! [New York Daily News]
- Ours not to reason why with "Goldfinger"; ours but to gape and admire; which is very easy and enjoyable. [Daily Telegraph]
- Most think it's the best Bond. This is classic stuff. [New Times]
- Mixed in with some tough action and the introduction of such memorable gadgets as Bond's Aston Martin car, there's never a dull moment and the film flies by. [BBC.com]
Admission: US$2.00 [free to Film Members]
THURSDAY 11 MAY AT 6.30 P.M. SPARTACUS
Spartacus, the genre-defining epic from director Stanley Kubrick, is the tale of a bold gladiator Spartacus (Kirk Douglas), born and raised a slave. After weeks of being trained to kill for the arena, Spartacus turns on his owners and leads the other slaves in rebellion. As the rebels move from town to town, their numbers swell as escaped slaves join their ranks. Under the leadership of Spartacus, they make their way to southern Italy, where they hope to cross the sea and return to their homes. The action-packed spectacle won four Academy Awards and, as well as Kirk Douglas, featured a cast of screen legends including Laurence Olivier, Charles Laughton, Peter Ustinov, Jean Simmons, John Gavin and Tony Curtis.
- One of the greatest Hollywood epics. [The Observer]
- The great-granddaddy of Ridley Scott's Gladiator hasn't lost any muscle tone after half a century, and Kirk Douglas's direct, unpretentious performance as the great slave-rebel Spartacus is more engaging than ever. [Guardian]
- Featuring terrific performances and epic action, Kubrick's swords-and-sandals epic is a true classic. [Rotten Tomatoes]
- Spartacus is a special experience; a classic epic with a distinctly modern sensibility. [Metacritic]
Admission: US$2.00 [free to Film Members]
FRIDAY 12 MAY AT 6.30 P.M. KHACHATURIAN: SPARTACUS
After Hollywood, Spartacus with the Bolshoi and Carlos Acosta! Acclaimed in his prime as the world's greatest male dancer, Carlos Acosta, dances perhaps the greatest male ballet lead, Spartacus, in Grigorovich's famous Soviet ballet, created for the Bolshoi to Khachaturian's score. Following sensational performances in Moscow and London in 2007, the Bolshoi's production was re-staged and filmed in January 2008 in the Paris Opera's Palais Garnier, especially for Acosta.
- A fantastic exhibition of male strength in ballet. It's all testosterone fuelled striking of attitudes, naked aggression and amazing dance. For all their muscles the male protagonists seem to defy the laws of gravity - an amazing display of Olympic rated virility! [The Ballet Bag]
- This is as good as you are going to get in terms of capturing Carlos's physical power. I have seen him in many Royal Ballet performances, but Spartacus surpassed them all. [Amazon]
- Powered up by his Cuban training, Acosta can easily hold his own against the weight of the Bolshoi dancers. His jumps have a rabid muscular force, his pirouettes smoke, and in his own slightly insolent fashion he is not afraid of making grand gestures on stage. He actually makes some of the other Bolshoi men look wussy. [The Guardian]
- For the Bolshoi too, Acosta's triumph was theirs, since this is a ballet that's not easy to sell as more than big, flash, macho spectacle. Acosta is the one man who has had both the supreme physicality for the gigantic demands, and who carried the dilemma of Spartacus as a man verily in his own soul, and transmitted it nakedly. This is blazingly evident on this recording. [The Arts Desk - DVD of the Year]
Admission: US$2.00 [free to Red Carpet Members]
