Guys and Dolls

April 23

USA | 1955 | 150 Minutes | Joseph L. Mankiewicz

Amongst the most popular musicals of all time, this outrageously comic and colorful film features Marlon Brando's bold musical debut as gambler Sky Masterson, who takes a bet from Nathan Detroit (Frank Sinatra) that he can win the affection of a strait-walking sister at the Save a Soul Mission (Jean Simmons).

Infra-Man

35mm Archival Print! The Shaw Brothers entered the kaiju battleground with this story of a bionic kung fu artist who battles the nefarious Queen Dragon Mom and her army of monsters by growing to enormous size and shooting them with his spring-loaded fists. Joyfully, willfully, and insanely absurd, critic Roger Ebert says, "When they stop making movies like Infra-Man, a little light will go out of the world."
