  • El ángel exterminador (The Exterminating Angel)

    El ángel exterminador (The Exterminating Angel) (1962)

    Exterminating Angel

    Saturday, March 9, 8 p.m., Rich Theatre

    A dinner party turns ugly for a group of high-society friends when they become inexplicably trapped in the parlor. Equally haunting and hilarious, this masterpiece from renowned director Luis Buñuel brims with his trademark absurdity and his biting criticism of bourgeoisie sensibility, while Gabriel Figueroa's creative camerawork and ingenious lighting techniques open up a single parlor to a world of dynamic space and shadow. As the characters realize the gravity of their plight and Buñuel's mockery gives way to damnation, Figueroa's aesthetics slowly bend toward claustrophobia, consuming darkness, and the mystery of the unknown.

    Pricing: General admission, $7; Museum members, students with I.D., and seniors, $6; Patron-level members, FREE
