This event has expired. Please visit the Events Calendar for current listings.
Discussion following the film with Maestro James Conlon and actor Stephen Fry. All ticket buyers will have a chance to win a pair of passes to the L.A. Opera production of Salome!
Rita Hayworth shines in the title role of this biblical epic, as the woman whose Dance of the Seven Veils bewitches King Herod (Charles Laughton) and costs John the Baptist (Alan Badel) his head. The film takes some liberties to paint Salome in a more sympathetic light but doesn’t skimp on spectacle, with costumes and production design befitting the glory days of Technicolor. With Judith Anderson, Cedric Hardwicke and Stewart Granger.
