La Chimera

Opened Friday, March 29, 2024


Sneak previews Thursday, March 21 with stars Josh O’Connor & Isabella Rossellini in person: 7:00, followed by a Q&A, and 9:45, with extended introduction.

Oscar-nominated director Alice Rohrwacher’s (Happy as Lazzaro, The Wonders) otherworldly, gorgeous new film stars Josh O’Connor (The Crown, God’s Own Country) as Arthur, a roguish Englishman with uncanny powers of divination. Just out of prison, he rejoins a ragtag gang of tomb raiders as they unearth ancient graves across rural Italy, plundering their treasures to sell on the black market. But even the prospect of untold riches can’t quiet Arthur’s thoughts of his lost love, who haunts his memory from beyond. With Isabella Rossellini and Alba Rohrwacher.
