TUESDAY, MAY 2 ONLY
3h30m (including Q & A) | Directed by Michael Mann | USA | Crime, drama
In Heat (1995), master criminal Neil McCauley (Robert De Niro) and LAPD Lieutenant Hanna (Al Pacino) discover a mutual respect, even as they try to thwart each other’s plans. McCauley is trying to control the rogue actions of one of his men as he plans one last big heist before retiring. Meanwhile, Hanna attempts to track down McCauley as he deals with the chaos in his own life, including the infidelity of his wife (Diane Venora) and the mental health of his stepdaughter (Natalie Portman).
Presenting Robert De Niro and Al Pacino together on-screen for the first time, and filmed at 65 LA area locations, but not one soundstage, Heat has been restored with Mann’s supervision. Our one-night-only screening includes a Q & A with the director, simulcast live from the Regency Village Theater in LA.
Michael Mann and a superlative cast have taken a classic heist movie rife with familiar genre elements and turned it into a sleek, accomplished piece of work, meticulously controlled and completely involving.

Boosters and touts use the term ‘major movie’ so often that it’s more likely to generate yawns than excitement at this point. Back to basics. Heat is a major movie. With major stars. Doing major acting.

As with his other works, [Mann] binds sound, music and pictures into one hypnotic triaxial cable and plugs it right into your brain. He makes this…experience practically glide by.
