Presented in a gorgeous new 4K restoration, this satirical look of the absurdity of war still charms over 50 years after its release. During WWI, a Scottish soldier (Alan Bates) is sent on a mission to disarm a bomb in a French country village. The town is now inhabited by former residents of the local psychiatric hospital who have escaped after the villagers have deserted the area. The former inmates declare him their King of Hearts. 1966, France/Italy, 4K DCP restoration, in English, French and German with English subtitles, 102 minutes. Recommended for 13+.

Deep in Vogue: Louisville’s Treasured Cinema

October 12 – 28

For over 20 years, the Vogue Theater was Louisville’s celebrated arthouse cinema with a plethora of screenings of classic Hollywood fare, foreign films, wild cult films, children’s matinees, American independent releases, and the ever-popular The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The cinema in St. Matthews packed houses and gave an informal film education to the region.

This fall marks the 20th anniversary since its closing and this series celebrates beloved films that played at the Vogue. In addition, there will be a display of ephemera from the Vogue preserved by former Vogue staff members and local cinema archivist David Conover.
