Event Description

1987, dir Elaine May w/Warren Beatty, Dustin Hoffman, Isabelle Adjani, Charles Grodin, 107 min, DCP


Though widely derided as one of the biggest cinematic misfires of the ‘80s, Elaine May’s ISHTAR has begun to be reassessed in recent years – perhaps it was just to sharp a satire for audiences at the time. Released just 10 days into the Iran-Contra hearings, this homage to the Road to… films of Bing Crosby and Bob Hope crossed with a left-wing critique of Reagan-era policies stars Beatty and Hoffman as a pair of witless American entertainers who find themselves embroiled in a conflict between North African rebels and the CIA.


A "Double Feature" ticket additionally allows admission into the 9:15PM screening of WALKER. No additional purchase is necessary.
