Our 16th season of outdoor screenings begins with the most iconic movie about Los Angeles. Golden sunsets, deco mansions, and the neon of Chinatown paint a backdrop to a mystery in one of cinema’s greatest masterpieces. Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway star in the gripping murder mystery set in pre-war LA when a few men sought to control the city. A private eye investigates the murder of a city planner, and slowly uncovers a plot that would change the city forever. Can he discover the secret before it’s too late? Suspense and danger lurk on every side as detective J.J. Gittes follows a trail of corruption, a grab for power and murder in this modern take on film noir. A beautiful and enigmatic woman is part of the mystery. Can their love survive the truths he uncovers? Join us for Polanski’s jewel of filmmaking under the stars.
