Classic Films Showing in Miami in March
Donnie Darko screens at Cosford Cinema this Wednesday.
With Borscht Diez having just ended and Miami Film Festival in full swing, Miami audiences have enjoyed a full roster of new films to check out. But what about the classics? March offers many.
If you missed your shot to check out Donnie Darko last month on 35mm at Gables Cinema, look no further than the digital showing at Cosford Cinema. It'll screen this Wednesday and Saturday as part of the lineup for Cosford's student group, CAC, which typically shows new films.
The Tower will show a 30th-anniversary screening of Bille August's Pelle the Conqueror (Pelle Erobreren) later this month. Dates are not yet available, but the film won an Oscar for best foreign film.
Miami Beach Cinematheque
In partnership with Miami Film Festival, the Miami Beach Cinematheque is holding a retrospective of director Andrzej Wajda's work to celebrate the release of his final feature, Afterimage, before his passing in 2016. Last week, the Cinematheque showed A Generation. The cinema will also screen Ashes and Diamonds this Thursday and Danton next Thursday, March 16.
Roman Polanski's Repulsion

At the Miami Beach location of O Cinema, Secret Celluloid Society will continue its residency with three films for the upcoming weekends: The Funhouse this Saturday, Weird Science March 18, and Hausu March 25. All will be shown on 35mm.
