New York City — Showtimes & Events

Saturday December 3rd: Editor’s Pick

CANCELLED [Program & Tix]

EMPIRE OF THE SUN
Spielberg | 1987 | US | 152min
“See it Big!”
CANCELLED

“There are sections of Empire of the Sun that are so visually expressive they barely require dialogue (although Tom Stoppard’s screenplay, which streamlines J. G. Ballard’s novel, is often crisp and clever)…The fine young actor [Christian Bale], who appears in virtually every frame of the film and ages convincingly from about 9 to 13, is eminently able to handle an ambitious and demanding role.”
Janet Maslin, New York Times
