    Bonjour tout le monde! Just a quick note to let everyone know that MFAH Films will be screening two gems from Jacques Rivette: one is a film never released in the U.S.: "Le pont du nord"; and a new print of his enigmatic epic "Celine et Julie vont en bateau." Catch these unique titles only at MFAH Films!
    Here's the link: http://www.mfah.org/films/series/49/

    Allons y au cinema!
    Ciao,

    I apologize if anyone had trouble finding me. The theater was very crowded and the 7Pm show sold out.

    The 7PM show may sell out. I recommend you buy your tickets online on the MFAH.org website, or get there early and buy them at the ticket counter.
