Allan King’s ‘A Married Couple’ Screening at the TIFF Bell Lightbox

The TIFF Bell Lightbox has been consistently offering some great repertory cinema offerings since its grand opening last September. I can attest to this as just last weekend I was lucky enough to catch a screening of a PRISTINE 35mm print of Peter Yates’ classic sci-fi fantasy film Krull as a part of their awesome Back to the 80’s screening series. For doc fans, they will be screening a restruck and restored print of Allan King’s classic 1969 film A Married Couple. Here are the details via the press release:

On April 15, TIFF presents a restruck and restored version of A Married Couple, Allan King’s 1969 cinema-verité film that follows the collapse of a couple’s marriage.

A Married Couple, considered one of the most influential and celebrated Canadian films ever made, from one of the most influential documentary filmmakers, will air as part of TIFF’s Canadian Open Vault programme.

The film depicts scenes from the marriage of Billy and Antoinette Edwards. The film captures the conflict of husband and wife struggling with traditional societal roles ascribed to them. This special screening of A Married Couple will be introduced by Zoë Druick, whose monograph on A Married Couple was published in 2010 by TIFF and the University of Toronto Press.

Sounds good to me! You can pre-order tickets at the TIFF Bell Lightbox website. The dates are below:
