Retro Revival

Retro Revival represents the JBFC’s ongoing commitment to the world of repertory cinema. Each month, we present remastered or re-released versions of great films from all points of cinema history that are best experienced together with a crowd of film fans. From Hollywood classics to more contemporary gems, art house mainstays to newly rediscovered knock-outs, Retro Revival gives us the opportunity to rediscover— or experience for the first time— fantastic cinema on a big screen. We look forward to seeing you there! Programmed by Andrew Jupin.
