Architect of Aesthetic: A Joel Schumacher Tribute


Some Screenings in this series take place at the Aero Theatre!


Joel Schumacher began his career as a costume designer, and his impeccable sense of visual design is evident in all of his directorial efforts, from his feature debut THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING WOMAN to his recent Sundance triumph TWELVE – yet this is no mere stylist. Throughout his career as a writer and director, Schumacher has traversed a wide variety of genres, subjects, and tones to create a diverse body of work. Dramas such as FALLING DOWN and FLATLINERS coexist with legal thrillers (THE CLIENT, A TIME TO KILL), and horror films (THE LOST BOYS, TOWN CREEK), while gritty, modestly budgeted character studies such as TIGERLAND and VERONICA GUERIN alternate with glossy studio franchise films including Schumacher's two BATMAN entries.

Join us for a selection of Schumacher's past works (including a 25th anniversary screening of ST. ELMO'S FIRE) as well as an advance screening of his latest film, TWELVE.



Friday, June 25 – 7:30 PM

Joel Schumacher Double Feature: FALLING DOWN, 1993, Warner Bros., 113 min. Dir. Joel Schumacher. When defense worker Michael Douglas loses his job and finds himself estranged from his family, he snaps and becomes a vigilante fighting for all the things he feels he and his generation have lost. The result is a chilling and moving satire thanks to Douglas’ pitch-perfect performance and Schumacher's empathetic treatment of his antihero. Trailer

FLATLINERS, 1990, Sony Repertory, 115 min. Dir. Joel Schumacher. An all-star cast of med students (Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt) experiments with death, stopping each others' hearts and "flatlining" before being revived. Until, that is, they soon discover their exercise has unleashed the secrets of their past in a supernaturally terrifying manner. Trailer | Buy Tickets Director Joel Schumacher will introduce the screenings.
