Rebel Without a Cause (Nicholas Ray, 1955, 111 mins)
New print! James Dean, Natalie Wood, and Sal Mineo give career-defining performances, roaming the teenage wasteland of Eisenhower-era Southern California. Angst is high, cars are fast, and parents—as always—just don’t understand, even in spectacular CinemaScope. “An unmissable film, made with a delirious compassion” (Dave Kehr). 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.
Free and open to the public. All attendees must be asymptomatic and fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (including boosters when eligible) and should be prepared to show proof of vaccination. Yale-approved masks are required at all times.
