Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Technicolor, we are screening one of the most splendid and beloved color films and “the greatest film about ballet.” (LA Weekly)
A flame-haired British ballet hopeful is torn by her love for an equally driven young composer. Even as it explores the age-old battle between art and life, The Red Shoes finds beauty and drama backstage and on.
Wait ’till you see that delirious title dance from Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of ballet slippers that drive a dancer to her death.
This print reflects a 7-year project to restore the film’s original lost color process, allowing us to view again “some of the most spectacular images in cinema history” (Wall St Journal)
