The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced today a yearlong residency at Metrograph Theaters in New York City, beginning July 24, that will showcase high quality film prints from the Academy Film Archive.

Home to one of the most diverse and extensive motion picture collections in the world, the monthly series will feature onstage conversations with filmmakers and scholars of motion pictures, tributes, newsreels, rarely seen clips from past Oscar® ceremonies, and home movies from Hollywood legends and some of the most influential filmmakers and artists. The series will begin with tribute screenings to George Stevens and Saul Bass, additional programming to be announced.

Current programming lineup as follows:

"A PLACE IN THE SUN: THE CINEMA OF GEORGE STEVENS"

Monday, July 24 at 7:00PM at Metrograph Theater

Based on the 1925 novel An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser, George Stevens directs an all star cast including Montgomery Clift, Elizabeth Taylor and Shelly Winters in a story of romance, social climbing and murder. A PLACE IN THE SUN (1951) was both a critical and commercial success upon its release in 1951 garnering nine nominations and winning six Oscars® including Best Director.

WHY MAN CREATES: THE WORK OF SAUL BASS

Wednesday, August 2 at 7:00PM at Metrograph Theater

Known for his fluid and geometric title designs and posters, Saul Bass remains one of the most iconic and influential designers of the 20th Century. To illustrate his wide range of works, as well as the impressive list of filmmakers he has collaborated with, the Academy Film Archive has created a reel of his most famous (or lesser seen) title sequences. Following the title reel, the Academy will present three of Bass’s short films: WHY MAN CREATES (1958), THE SEARCHING EYE (1964), and THE SOLAR FILM (1980), all preserved by the Academy Film Archive.
