The American Cinematheque in Santa Monica will be screening "Superman: The Movie" and "Superman II" on November 18 & 19 respectively.

Saturday, November 18 - 7:30 PM
SUPERMAN, 1978, Warner Bros., 151 min. The film that set the standard for all big screen comic-book adaptations before or since, director Richard Donner's spectacular SUPERMAN has been digitally restored, with eight minutes of never-before-seen footage added, including a pivotal scene with Marlon Brando as Superman's father, Jor-El. Virtual unknown Christopher Reeve was brilliantly cast as the heroic Man of Steel and his bumbling counterpart Clark Kent, with terrific support from Margot Kidder as Lois Lane and Gene Hackman as Superman's arch-nemesis, Lex Luthor.

Sunday, November 19 - 6:30 PM
SUPERMAN II, 1980, Warner Bros., 127 min. The story, written for the screen by Mario Puzo, THE GODFATHER's creator, takes place immediately after the first film's events but in a very different spirit. The franchise is now helmed by Richard Lester (A HARD DAYS NIGHT), the English-adopted American director. With Lester behind the lens, the Superman saga becomes even more thrilling and more amusing, administering tall-tale dynamics much truer to the essence of the original comic. Three super-villains from Krypton (Terence Stamp, et. al.) arrive on Earth to bedevil Christopher Reeve's Man Of Steel and heartthrob Lois Lane (Margot Kidder). With Susannah York. (Please note that the only existing print is slightly faded.)
