Our September film, Tirez sur le pianiste by François Truffaut, is now postponed. New date TBA.

François Truffaut’s second feature (after Les 400 coups), Tirez sur le pianiste (Shoot the Piano Player, 1960) stars real-life pianist and actor Charles Aznavour in an unforgettable New Wave role. Full of tributes to film noir, the film is part love story, told in exquisite flashback, and is full of gangster intrigue. Playful, poignant, and experimental in narrative and cinematographic styles, this film is a wonderful way to get to know this famous auteur.

NOTE: This film is being shown at Belmont University in the Johnson Center, . Directions: the Johnson Center building has a parking garage. Drive down to P1, and park in a visitor space. Take the elevator to the first floor, turn left, and go through the double doors to the theater, room 115 (the large theater). Click here for map.
