This screening is now standby only! Pending availability, standby tickets will be given out first-come, first-served starting 20 minutes prior to the screening.
In between the double feature, attendees are invited to a reception in the Furman Gallery sponsored by Radeberger. Must be 21+ to receive complimentary beer.
Experience the mysteries and revelations of Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 science-fiction masterpiece, which made box-office history at Film at Lincoln Center following its re-release in 2017. Decades ago, a falling object decimated a provincial Russian town, and those who later went near the crash site—now known as The Zone—disappeared. Access is strictly prohibited, but outsiders can still get in with the help of a “stalker.” Inside The Zone is The Room, within which secret wishes can be granted. Based on the novel Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, Stalker is a visually extraordinary and philosophically provocative fable about the limits of knowledge—personal, scientific, and spiritual. Restored by Mosfilm from a 2K scan of the original negative.
This screening is part of our free weekly double features this summer to celebrate Film at Lincoln Center’s 50th anniversary.
