SOMETHING ALMOST BEYOND COMPREHENSION IS HAPPENING TO A GIRL ON THIS STREET, IN THIS HOUSE… AND A MAN HAS BEEN SENT FOR AS A LAST RESORT.
It has been 50 years since William Friedkin’s spellbinding classic hit the silver screen. When 12-year-old Regan MacNeil falls ill, she becomes violent and puzzles doctors with the personality of a horrifying entity. Desperate for answers, Regan’s movie-star mother Chris seeks the help of two priests: one who has lost his faith, and an exorcist. Winner of 1973 Oscars for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound Mixing, THE EXORCIST remains one of the most shocking and gripping movies in the history of cinema.
Both screenings on 35mm will be of the Extended Director’s Cut, 132 min. All other screenings on DCP will be a new 50th Anniversary 4K Restoration of the Original Theatrical Cut, 122 min.
Screening as part of our retrospective William Friedkin: Fate and Faith.
