Arles: the Méjan reels in the air, on Cruise

With summer, the canvases of our cinemas move under the natural darkness of the night. The Méjan-Actes Sud is no exception by settling in for three sessions at Croisière. The opportunity to rediscover a film club atmosphere with three cult films, three adaptations of novels, the rebroadcasts of which take nothing away from the pleasure they provide. This Thursday, it’s Jean-Jacques Annaud’s masterpiece, The Name of the Rose, released in 1986, adaptation of the eponymous novel by the Italian Umberto Eco, winner of the Medici Foreign Prize in 1982, which opens the ball. Sean Connery excels as a 14th century monk investigator in a Benedictine abbey struck by mysterious deaths. Next week, Nosferatu the vampire by Murnau takes us back to a time when fantastic cinema needed neither sound nor special effects to make us shiver. Diverted adaptation of Dracula by Bram Stoker, this silent film from 1922 is a reference in terms of German expressionist cinema. We no longer present Stanley Kubrick, whose each opus has marked the 7th art. June 27 is terrifying Shining (1980) which will be broadcast. Adapted from a book by Stephen King, this 11th feature film from the directorClockwork Orange has given generations of spectators nightmares. With the unforgettable psychopathic smile of Jack Nicholson at the height of his career.

“The Name of the Rose” (2:12 a.m., VOST), Thursday June 13; “Nosferatu the Vampire” (1:34 a.m., silent), June 20; “Shining” (2:25 a.m., VOST, prohibited for children under 12), June 27. Screenings at 10 p.m. at 63 avenue Émile Combes. Prices and tickets on cinemas-actes-sud.fr
