La Belle et la Bête

Directed by
Jean Cocteau

BeautyAndTheBeastJean Cocteau’s sublime adaptation of Mme. Leprince de Beaumont’s fairy-tale masterpiece—in which the pure love of a beautiful girl melts the heart of a feral but gentle beast—is a landmark of motion picture fantasy, with unforgettably romantic performances by Jean Marais and Josette Day. The spectacular visions of enchantment, desire, and death in Beauty and the Beast (La Belle et la Bête) have become timeless icons of cinematic wonder.

Our Film On Film 16mm screening series continues on Thursday 1/27 as series coordinator Bradley Reeves introduces and projects his personal film print of this unrivaled fantasy masterpiece. (Sunday’s encore screening will be digitally presented, featuring the most recent restoration.)

“One of the most magical of all films.” – Roger Ebert
