If you're not able to go to the venue, it is going to be streamed as well, but you have to register to view it on line.Please join us beginning on Saturday, December 9th for the final presentation of the Restoration Screening Room series, Sergio Leone's ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST (1968).

Registration is available now


ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST, Sergio Leone’s masterful reinvention of the Western genre, is the riveting story of two mysterious strangers (Jason Robards and Charles Bronson) joining forces to defend a widow (Claudia Cardinale) after a sinister hired gun (Henry Fonda) murders her family in a bid to grab land for the railroad. Unlike the well-groomed characters depicted in traditional studio Westerns, the inhabitants of Leone’s frontier are dusty and sweaty and grimy. Leone’s frame-filling close-ups linger on nuances of facial expression, communicating more with a look than with pages of dialogue. Good-guy icon Henry Fonda is cast radically against type as the darkest of villains, bringing the European stylistic reinterpretations perfected in Leone’s low-budget “spaghetti Westerns” to a quintessential cowboy movie location—John Ford’s favorite, Monument Valley. The quietly epic film goes far beyond a reiteration of cinematic clichés, ultimately creating a deeply emotional exploration of the genre’s mythologies.

Viewers will experience the excitement of a festival event, featuring conversations with filmmakers and archivists providing an inside look at the restoration process.

We thank you for joining us in The Film Foundation Restoration Screening Room where we have been proud to present 20 restored films since May 2022 to film fans like you all over the world. Please visit The Film Foundation website to stay informed about future events and activities.

Many thanks,
The Film Foundation & Delphi
