70mm print restored by a consortium of French archives

Dir. Jacques Tati. 1967, 124 mins.

Tati’s architectural and cinematic masterpiece sets the hapless Monsieur Hulot adrift in a bustling yet sterile modern cityscape. Alienation has never been so spectacular or so richly detailed. This was Tati’s single film in 70mm, the only format suitable for its rich pictorial detail.

Tickets: $15 public (includes Museum admission) / Free for Museum members.
