"What is the best picture I have ever seen? My answer is always Potemkin."—Billy Wilder

This vividly restored version of Battleship Potemkin, one of the most monumental landmarks in cinema history, has an urgency and vitality unlike any that you’ve ever seen in film class. Showing the mutiny of the crew of the armed cruiser Potemkin, the film culminates in perhaps the most famous sequence in cinema history when the Czar's ruthless White Russian cavalry arrives on the Odessa Steps to crush the people's rebellion. The stunning new 35mm print restores dozens of missing shots, all of Eisenstein's original title cards, and Edmund Meisel's definitive 1926 score! (69 mins., 35mm)
