The New Hollywood: Deep Cuts 1967–78

Our 2017 summer series shines a spotlight on rarely screened gems from one of the most vibrant eras in American cinema. Roughly measured between the fall of the studio system in the mid-1960s and the blockbuster mentality that followed Jaws and Star Wars in the early 1980s, the New Hollywood period was distinguished, in part, by an unusual measure of creative freedom given to filmmakers. While it witnessed the creation of Easy Rider, The Godfather, Chinatown, and Taxi Driver, many other impressive films were produced in this rich vein of American classics, including these 16 underappreciated “deep cuts” featuring some of our best-known directors and actors. Most films screen in 35mm.

Deep Cuts is complemented by a series of more familiar films from the New Hollywood era—with several movies featuring the same directors—screening at Studio 35 in Clintonville. Visit for more information.
