At this series of screenings, film editor Thelma Schoonmaker (known for editing all of Scorsese's films since Raging Bull) will be in attendance. Her late husband, Michael Powell, directed The Red Shoes (which will play on March 6), a film about which Andrew Wright once wrote in The Stranger: "A favorite of Scorsese, this may just be the greatest film from the Powell-Pressburger team, which is saying quite a bit. Almost indecently lovely, with Technicolors that pulse off of the screen. You've gotta see this in a theater." The King of Comedy (which will play on March 7) is a 1982 film starring Robert De Niro as a stand-up comedian who hosts an imaginary talk show in his mom's basement.
