LocationPhyllis Wattis Theater
Irma Vep, Olivier Assayas, 1996, 97 min.
Les Vampires (The Vampires), parts 1-3, Louis Feuillade, 1915, 120 min.
Irma Vep, which stars Maggie Cheung playing herself playing a jewel thief in a rubber catsuit, is a witty, sexy, stylish film about film - and one of the cult movies of the 1990s. René Vidal (Jean-Pierre Léaud) is a has-been film director struggling to remake Feuillade's legendary serial, Les Vampires. This is a rare opportunity to see, in its entirety, a classic of early silent cinema.
