Special effects focus of Cinematheque series

The Emory Cinematheque series reels films this fall that feature major craftsmen of special effects.

This year’s series, "Movie Magic: Special and Visual Effects from 1896 to Now," looks at special effects before digital elements and computer-generated imagery was possible, as well as the remarkable feats of recent films.

Films include:

  • "King Kong" on Sept. 19
  • "The Invisible Man" on Sept. 26
  • "2001: 
 A Space Odyssey" on Nov. 7.

The series kicks off Aug. 29 with Martin Scorsese’s "Hugo."

A Sept. 5 showing will feature Georges Méliès’ "A Trip to the Moon" and other short films with live accompaniment by pianist Donald Sosin and singer Joanna Seaton.

On Nov. 14, French filmmaker Claire Denis will introduce and discuss one of her major films.

The screenings are free. Most will be in White Hall 208, except for the Oct. 3 
screening of  "The Tingler," which will be held in Atlanta’s Plaza Theater.
