Monster from a Prehistoric Planet (+Super8 excerpts) 10:00 [35mm] Filmový klub v Múzeu SNP
Monster from a Prehistoric Planet (+Super8 excerpts)
Hiroshi Noguchi, 1966, JP/USA, 110 min
Spoken language: Czech. Subtitles: English.
An expedition in the South Pacific lands on a tropical island where the natives worship the mysterious deity Gappa. An earthquake opens up an underground cavern and a baby reptile is discovered inside. The natives warn the foreigners to leave the hatching alone, but they do not listen and take it back to a zoo in Japan. Soon after, mama and papa Gappa start smashing Tokyo looking for their kidnapped child.
A unique and rare screening of one of the works of Japanese cinema of the sixties. A B-movie, which in its time, despite its lousy tricks and simple script, was visited by crowds of people. You will see the predecessors of today's Godzillas and similar monsters. Despite more than fifty years since its release in our cinemas, you will be entertained, although certainly differently than the authors intended.

Spartacus 09:30 [16mm] Filmový klub v Múzeu SNP
Stanley Kubrick, 1960, USA, 180 min
Spoken language: English. Subtitles: Czech.
The slave Spartacus survives brutal training as a gladiator and leads a violent revolt against the decadent Roman Republic, as the ambitious Crassus seeks to gain power by crushing the uprising.
This time from a wide-screen 16mm technicolor print. In other words, something that could not be seen in our country even at the time of the greatest expansion of 16mm format.

Who Wants to Kill Jessie? 14:00 [35mm] Filmový klub v Múzeu SNP
Who Wants to Kill Jessie?
Václav Vorlíček, 1966, CS, 81 min
Spoken language: Czech. Subtitles: English.
The dreams of an enterprising docent, her husband (and later also the explorer cow) will materialize and their heroes will enter our ordinary world. Of course, here they cause one mischief after another, especially the transparently negative nobody destroys everything that stands in his way.
Comics were not shown in Czechoslovakia even in the enlightened 1960s, but filmmakers were at least allowed to parody them. The audience had a great time, even if they didn't know the original works. A well-written and directed comedy with excellent acting performances, which has not lost its charm even after years.

An adaptation of Homer's great epic, the film follows the assault on Troy by the Greek forces and chronicles the fates of the men whose names are shrouded in glory even today.

Oppenheimer 21:30 [70mm] Letné kino na amfiteátri
Christopher Nolan, 2023, USA/UK, 180 min
Spoken language: English. Subtitles: Slovak.
J. Robert Oppenheimer, the physicist who had a large hand in the development of the atomic bomb, thus helping end World War 2. We see his life from university days all the way to post-WW2, where his fame saw him embroiled in political machinations.
The story of Robert Oppenheimer presented by Christopher Nolan is clearly the film of 2023. Probably no other director can afford to make a biopic on extremely expensive 65mm IMAX analog material. And now finally we in Banská Bystrica will see this magnificent film from 70mm format on the whole large screen. Do not miss this opportunity, even if you have already seen the film.
