A thief trapped inside a tomb, a sinful rogue declared a saint after death, and a deaf-mute who becomes the object of desire for a colony of nuns are among the handful of Boccaccio’s characters in this adaptation. Set in a gorgeously realized 14th-century Naples, Pasolini’s vision merges the bawdy and the beautiful, making moments of vulgarity and murder as absurdly humorous as they are strangely poetic.
Pier Paolo Pasolini. 1971. 112 m. R. France/Italy/West Germany, Italian with subtitles. Park Circus.2:15 PM
A phenomenon in France, where it shattered box-office records to become the second most successful French film of all time, Intouchables tells the true story of the unlikely friendship between a quadriplegic aristocrat (François Cluzet) and his unconventional Senegalese caretaker from the projects (Omar Sy). Critics are applauding breakout star Omar Sy, who received the Cesar Award for Best Actor for his performance.
Olivier Nakache/Eric Toledano. 2012. 112 m. R. France, French. The Weinstein Company.2:35 PM 5:00 PM 7:25 PM 9:50 PM
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
"A sterling cast and a fine balance of comedy and poignancy make this story of unfulfilled Brit retirees discovering new life in India a pleasure-filled journey." (David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter)
Enticed by advertisements for the newly restored Marigold Hotel, a group of British retirees decide to “outsource” their retirement and move to less expensive and seemingly, exotic India. They soon discover that the hotel is a shell of its former self and isn’t as luxurious as they had believed. With an all-star cast that includes Bill Nighy, Judi Dench, and Maggie Smith, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a witty, up-lifting, feel-good comedy.
John Madden. 2012. 124 m. PG-13. UK. Fox Searchlight.3:25 PM 8:00 PM
Like your Fellini flamboyant? Look no further than this outlandish adult fairy tale. Opulent sets depict a decadent ancient Rome where characters move from one excess to another in a surreal progression of fragmented vignettes meant to “eliminate the borderline between dream and imagination.” Satyricon’s chronicle of a hedonistic society barreling toward downfall makes for an overwhelming theatrical experience.
Federico Fellini. 1969. 128 m. R. Italy, in Italian with subtitles.. Park Circus.4:40 PM 7:20 PM

Art and terror have never come together as they do in Suspiria, the most famous giallo (stylized thriller) ever produced. Rather than simply scare, it assaults the senses in ways that make even the mundane act of walking through a sliding door seem otherworldly. With music by progressive rock group Goblin that amplifies the supernatural presence menacing a dance academy, Dario Argento’s atmospheric phantasmagoria blurs the line between dream and nightmare.
Dario Argento. 1977. 98 m. R. Italy. Criterion/20th Century Fox.10:00 PM
