Scorsese and DiCaprio


This is an Egyptian Theatre Exclusive!


After productive ongoing relationships with Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel in the 1970s, '80s and '90s, director Martin Scorsese found a new muse in the 2000s in the form of TITANIC star Leonardo DiCaprio. Starting with GANGS OF NEW YORK in 2002 and continuing through three more films (THE DEPARTED, THE AVIATOR and this year's SHUTTER ISLAND), DiCaprio and Scorsese found a common language and have created a body of work that stands alongside the best actor-director partnerships. The Cinematheque is proud to present a complete series of their collaborations.



Saturday, November 13 – 5:00 PM

Double Feature: THE DEPARTED, 2006, Warner Bros., 151 min. Dir. Martin Scorsese. Scorsese returns to crime and the streets, though this time the mean streets are in Boston, not New York. Leonardo DiCaprio is an undercover cop pretending to be a crook and Matt Damon is a gangster (a protege of crime lord Jack Nicholson) passing himself off as a cop; as both men get deeper and deeper into their false identities, the danger to their bodies and souls increases exponentially. Scorsese finally got his Oscar for this riveting thriller that also stars Mark Wahlberg, Martin Sheen, and Alec Baldwin. [35mm] Trailer
GANGS OF NEW YORK, 2001, Miramax Films, 167 min. Martin Scorsese's most ambitious epic uses the visual language of the American Western to tell a very urban story: the history of New York's development in the wake of the Civil War. Leonardo DiCaprio is a young man bent on vengeance whose nemesis, the evil but seductive Bill the Butcher (Daniel Day Lewis), leads his city's anti-immigrant "nativist" movement. [35mm] Trailer



Sunday, November 14 – 1:00 PM SOLD OUT (There will be a standby line)

Double Feature: SHUTTER ISLAND, 2010, Paramount Pictures, 138 min. Dir. Martin Scorsese. Adapted from a Dennis Lehane novel, an investigator who enters a mental institution to solve a crime and is quickly immersed in a tale of haunting mystery and psychological suspense that unfolds entirely on a fortress-like island housing a hospital for the criminally insane. Leonardo DiCaprio heads up an all-star cast (Ben Kingsley, Mark Ruffalo, Max von Sydow, Patricia Clarkson) in this chilling compendium of mid-20th century horrors. [35mm] Trailer
THE AVIATOR, 2004, Miramax Films, 170 min. Dir. Martin Scorsese. Leonardo DiCaprio plays Howard Hughes in this biopic that earned him an Academy AwardŽ nomination for Best Actor. The gripping drama focuses largely on Hughes' adventures in Hollywood - a time frame that allows Martin Scorsese to construct a grand old-fashioned entertainment in the tradition of the classic studio system. Recreations of the Cocoanut Grove and other Hollywood landmarks, along with expert turns by Cate Blanchett as Katharine Hepburn and Kate Beckinsale as Ava Gardner, make this a feast for movie fans. [35mm] Discussion at 1pm with actor Leonardo DiCaprio and director Martin Scorsese via satellite from London. Trailer | Buy Tickets Please note: Some tickets will be available at the door for this event. There will be a standby line and some tickets may still be on Fandango. Due to circumstances beyond his control, Leonardo DiCaprio was not able to come to Los Angeles from overseas as planned. He will also appear via satellite. The conversation between Scorcese and DiCaprio will last one hour, with 45 minutes dedicated to taking questions from the audience. Pete Hammond will moderate.
