  • Presbyterian Church is a small mining town in the turn-of-the century Pacific Northwest – and a perfect place where gambler John Q. McCabe and bordello madam Constance Miller can do business.  

    Robert Altman’s dazzlingly original McCabe & Mrs. Miller, starring Warren Beatty and Julie Christie (a 1971 Best Actress Academy Award® nominee for her work here), stands the mythology of the Old West on its ear. Shot on beautiful Vancouver wilderness locations, it captures the essence of a long-ago time, coupled with the edgy modern sensibility Altman brought to his other ’70s masterworks M*A*S*H and Nashville. The spellbinding result, critic Pauline Kael wrote, is “a modern classic.”

  • A peerless filmmaker of substance and scale, David Lean directs Boris Pasternak’s tumultuous tale of Russia divided by war and hearts torn by love. 

    Epic images abound: revolution in the streets, an infantry charge into no-man’s-land, the train ride to the Urals, an icebound dacha. Omar Sharif plays the title role, Julie Christie is his haunting, long-time love Lara and both are caught up in the tidal wave of history. Hauntingly scored by Maurice Jarre (who earned one of the film’s five Academy Awards®) and full of indelible performances, Doctor Zhivago is a moviemaking wonder.
