Film Screening:


(Michael Mann, 1995, 170 min, USA, English, DCP)

New 4K Restoration.

Neil McCauley (Robert DeNiro) and his crew take down scores; Lt. Vincent Hanna (Al Pacino) and his detective squad track down criminals. The archetypal cops & robbers story explodes into a sprawling Los Angeles melodrama, detailing the complex inner lives and relationships of those who make crime their trade, as these two unstoppable forces collide.


“One of the best-edited shoot-out scenes you’ll ever see.” – Adam Nayman

Heat may have been billed as a cop thriller, but its timelessness rests on its portrait of broken men, the unfathomable patience of the women who love them, and the human wreckage they all leave behind. Twenty years later, it still breaks your heart.” – Bilge Ebiri


Screen/Society screenings are free and open to the public. (COVID-19 Info)
