Jeff Goldblum Retrospective at the Quad

Jeff Goldblum Retrospective + 2K restoration of Between the Lines

Starts February 8
The Quad salutes the irresistibly idiosyncratic Jeff Goldblum with a retrospective on the occasion of a new 2K restoration of Joan Micklin Silver's under-appreciated sophomore feature Between the Lines

Highlights include 35mm prints of The Fly, The Big Chill, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and more

Between the Lines

Opens Friday February 22—New York premiere of 2K restoration
Joan Micklin Silver, 1977, U.S., 101m, DCP
In a time when independent media and journalism are constantly under attack, the sophomore film by the trailblazing Joan Micklin Silver (Hester Street), while over 40 years old, could not be more timely today. Following the lives and loves of a group of staffers at a Boston alt-weekly as they face a possible corporate takeover and unemployment, this rueful multi-character comedy drama is a true lost treasure. Featuring a stellar cast in early roles: John Heard, Lindsay Crouse, Jill Eikenberry, Bruno Kirby, Gwen Welles, and Jeff Goldblum as the paper’s music critic. A Cohen Film Collection release

"Gently perceptive... an appealing, low-key, counter-culture newspaper comedy." —Vincent Canby, The New York Times

The Goldblum Variations

February 8-21
At 6’4” tall, Jeff Goldblum can’t help but draw the eye; his striking looks express level-gaze intensity or offbeat charm while his voice is by turns seductive and quizzical—with diction that’s tuned in to its own private frequency, compelling not only the audience but also his co-stars to lean in closer. While his career extends to theatre (he studied at the Neighborhood Playhouse) and TV, with his brainy wit, loping physicality, and oddball charisma, Goldblum belongs on the big screen. On the occasion of the restoration of Joan Micklin Silver’s Between the Lines, featuring an early scene-stealing deadpan turn from Goldblum, the Quad pays tribute to an icon of idiosyncratic individuality.
