Central Cinema Cinesthesia presents Ace in the Hole (1951)

Meeting Room 302
Wednesday, Jul 3, 6:30pm to 8:45pm

"Billy Wilder’s Ace in the Hole is one of the most scathing indictments of American culture ever produced by a Hollywood filmmaker. Kirk Douglas gives the fiercest performance of his career as Chuck Tatum, an amoral newspaper reporter who washes up in dead-end Albuquerque, happens upon the scoop of a lifetime, and will do anything to keep getting the lurid headlines" (Criterion).
