Gremlins (Joe Dante, 1984)
The 1984 instant classic Gremlins exemplifies Joe Dante’s unique voice as a filmmaker in an otherworldly horror film set in your very familiar backyard. The film tells the story of cinema’s cutest fuzzball, Gizmo, and the very big responsibility required to keep him from spawning terrifying, destructive little monsters. Executive produced by Steven Spielberg and written by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, The Goonies), Gremlins was a unique box office smash in a summer full of hits.
Raging Bull (Martin Scorsese, 1980) With a big leap in his career as the director of the Roger Corman-produced Boxcar Bertha (1972), Martin Scorsese polished his style and turned around to create his breakout film Mean Streets (1973) the following year. The film began a longtime collaboration between Scorsese and Robert De Niro that reached a pinnacle in the 1980 film Raging Bull.

Like the rarity of throwing a pair of sixes in a game of dice, this concert provides a rare opportunity to hear two major string sextets: “Souvenir de Florence” by Tchaikovsky and “String Sextet Concert in B-flat Major” by Brahms. The artists comprising the sextet include violinists Alexander Kerr and Felix Olschofka, violists Michael Klotz and Misha Galaganov, and cellists Edward Arron and Dmitry Kouzov.
