MUST SEE! The Royal Cinema: Krzysztof Kieslowski’s ‘Three Colors’ July 13-14, 2018



Catch some pretty special screenings of Krzysztof Kieslowski’s ‘Three Colors’ July 13-14, 2018 at the Royal Cinema. They are true cinematic masterpieces and worth catching on the big screen in the next few weeks. 

Here’s the scoop!

Many film directors have explored the possibilities of the trilogy— indeed, a series devoted to the three-part form has the potential to feature any number of great works from the history of cinema. This fall we offer a trio: Satyajit Ray’s Apu Trilogy, Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Three Colors, and Marcel Pagnol’s Fanny Trilogy. Each includes films that can be seen as individual, self-contained stories or as part of a set, allowing filmgoers a chance to sample or revisit specific films or see the trajectory of characters, stories, and ideas across an entire trilogy.
