The Twelve Chairs

Friday, June 7 - Sunday, June 9, 2013

High-definition digital projection

“Gambolling about the Balkans is the theme of Mel Brooks’ second feature, with comic Moody and personable Langella chasing the one chair out of a set which is stuffed with pre-Russian Revolutionary booty. They run into Dom DeLuise, playing a Zero Mostel-in-The Producers role, and Brooks himself as a loony lackey. It’s all very fairytale, delightful to watch… What’s more pleasant about it is the direction, both of the performers and of the action within scenes: the excellent timing can now be seen as preparation for the sort of classical control that made a lot of Young Frankenstein so good.” – Time Out (London)
