Rialto Pictures

Beginning on January 25, the SIFF Cinema is running a a great series of classic films as restored by Rialto Pictures. Rialto came into being ten years ago and in that time has restored a number of gorgeous movies, creating pristine new prints, and re-translating many of them with new subtitles. Among the treasures are the ever astonishing "Battle of Algiers," the super sexy Godard gangster film "Band of Outsiders,"and the incredibly creepy George Franju film "Eyes Without a Face," about a plastic surgeon who becomes obsessed with giving his disfigured daughter a new face. Includes a number of two-for-one double features.
