Ballhaus + Scorsese Series - After Hours on 35 mm

Location Info:

The Texas Theater
231 W. Jefferson Ave.
Fort Worth, TX  76110
Texas Theatre ends their tribute to cinematographer Michael Ballhaus with a 35mm-film screening of Martin Scorsese’s lesser-known masterwork After Hours. While Scorsese and Ballhaus worked together on six films, including the Oscar-winning drama The Departed, as well as The Last Temptation of Christ, Goodfellas and Gangs of New York, After Hours stands out for its camerawork. For those who love the look of the Manhattan after dark, several scenes of After Hours serve as a documentary of sorts on the city’s streets in the early 1980s. And the gorgeously shot black comedy initially received a perfect four-out-of-four-stars rating from Roger Ebert, who later included the film on his "Great Movies" list. The film features Griffin Dunne as Paul Hackett surrounded by an ensemble cast featuring Rosanna Arquette, Teri Garr, John Heard and Catherine O'Hara, and the film follows Hackett, an ordinary word processor, as he experiences a series of unlucky misadventures after meeting a young woman at a coffee shop while making his way home from New York City's SoHo district. The screening starts at 7 p.m. at Texas Theatre, 231 W Jefferson Blvd., and tickets cost $10.75 ($9.75 for seniors and students)
