Description Starring Mia Farrow, John Cassavettes, and Ruth Gordon. Directed by Roman Polanski. (136 minutes, 1968, Color)

In his first American film, Roman Polanski re-invented the horror film, rescuing the genre from the schlocky, B-movie status to which it had fallen. Ironically, it was legendary schlock-master William Castle, creator of such gimmicky B horror flicks as “The Tingler” and “House on Haunted Hill”, who had purchased the rights to Ira Levin’s best-selling horror/thriller and hired the young, newly-immigrated Polanski to direct. Polanski’s greatest strength is his subtlety; his pacing and sense of mood are masterful without calling attention to themselves. He avoids the gimmicks and gore that had been conventions of the horror genre, but instead employs Hitchcock’s propensity to find horror in the utterly mundane. The horror of the film’s underlying supernatural premise sinks its claws in so slowly and unobtrusively that the audience doesn’t notice the enveloping sense of dread and despair until too late. Rosemary Woodhouse is a young wife, played with waif-like perfection by Mia Farrow, who moves into an old New York City apartment building with her struggling actor husband. At first little seems out of order, except that their elderly neighbors are a bit eccentric and a tad nosy. But gradually, a sense begins to build in Rosemary – and the audience – that something is wrong not just with her neighbors but also with her unborn child. The film is also full of memorable performances, from small roles for iconic 1940s stars like Ralph Bellamy and Elisha Cook, Jr. to the Academy Award-winning performance by Ruth Gordon as the meddling neighbor, to Farrow’s haunting performance.

$8 for adults; $6 for seniors (65+) and children (12 & younger).
