No upcoming showtimes.

Ivan the Terrible Part II
Sergei Eisenstein, 1958
USSR | 88 minutes

The second part of Eisenstein’s feverishly expressive final masterpiece looks in detail at the Russian court’s nobility, the Boyars, as they attempt to unseat Ivan and replace him with the simpleton Vladimir. Disapproved of by Stalin and not released until after his, Eisenstein and Prokofiev’s deaths, Part II includes the famous banquet sequence in color, shot on captured German film stock.
